I am Denys Ivanichek and this is why I shoot film

We’ve managed to drag today’s interviewee away from his workshop for a few minutes on the promise that he’s returned as soon as possible. You see, he’s not simply a film photographer but a tinkerer and engineer extraordinare; of course, it’s the one and only Denys Ivanichek. In case that name doesn’t ring any bells, here’s a quick introduction. Denys ran a Kickstarter campaign back in late 2013 to produce a limited run of his shutterless Petzval design lens for Hasselblad 200/2000 series and Pentacon 6 mount cameras.

I am Shikha Makan and this is why I shoot film

Director and travel junkie Shikha Makan is today’s interviewee and what an interesting character she is. After Kodak closed its doors in India, a friend handed her hundreds (yes, hundreds), of rolls of expired Kodak Ektachrome. She’s been shooting them this past year, whilst travelling the length and breadth of India. This should be a pretty colourful ride.   Hi Shikha, what’s this picture, then? I captured this image at sunrise in the blue city of Jodhpur, Rajasthan. I travel there each year to attend a folk music festival and had been to this vantage point the day before to study the light.
