As part of a personal project here in Berlin, I have been playing with running film through my little Minolta 35mm camera a few times, before developing the photographs. Here are some of my favourites.
This one was an adventure. The thrill of being in a place that was surely bristling with life, but now feels more like a haunted playground. I had wanted to visit this place for a long time. Berlin’s abandoned Spreepark amusement park. This was all shot on 35 mm film using my lovely and small vintage Minolta.
Here is some of my work from when Westworld sent me to London on assignment.
Unless you’re one of the lucky ones living in or visiting a hot country right now, you’re probably craving some southern heat.
In Teotihuacan, Mexico you’ll find the jaw-dropping Sun & Moon Pyramids. Two thousand years old and the home of a melting pot of peoples: the Totonacs, Otomi, Zapotec, Mixtec, Maya and Nahua. Imagine living here when it was full of people, colour, life and sacrifice. I can almost feel the sweltering heat and sun.
I’ve been getting into the darkroom with my new friend Adam Roe from Berlin Analog Photography.
Here’s a snapshot of the first analog print in my Berlin double exposure project.
It was exciting to see some photographs taken on my new old camera. There were some gems for sure, but most were garbled images… I’m not used to looking at my photos so small and as negatives when choosing what to enlarge. It’s a totally different world than digital.
This is three photos that I exposed on the same section of film:
- my hand
- the reflection of an S-Bahn station clock and Neukolln skyline on a passing train
- trees on the horizon
