Film Culture: Let’s Explore Magazine launch issue 00

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or in a darkroom) for the past few months, you’ll have at least a fleeting awareness of Let’s Explore Magazine and the hard work of Kilian Idsinga to bring this amazing project screaming off the web and on to the presses ready for printing. LEM is best described as a labour of love. One which has has taken two years of development to get to where it is today; the final days of its issue 00 Kickstarter campaign. When funded, we’ll see the at least 300 copies of delivered to backers across the globe...

Secret Santa 2015 – four days to go!

With only four days left to register, we’re incredibly pleased to announce that the wonderful folks at Ilford Photo have decided to throw their hat in to the ring and will be playing along with the rest of us! Joining 82 players in 21 countries, along with Kodak Alaris and The Impossible Project, Ilford’s involvement just goes to demonstrate that the film photography community is not only alive and well but can also come together in such a big way over something as small as this little project. Thank you all very much for your participation.   How does this all affect the Secret...

I am Tommy Nease and this is why I shoot film

Today we’re welcoming a nomad into the EMULSIVE fold. Our interviewee hitch-hikes, hops trains and treks his way across America (and elsewhere across the globe). We’re not 100% sure of why he goes where he goes but in any case, his travels bring with them the opportunity to explore the source of his artistic output and understand how he can realize it. Describing what exactly that work is, is best left to the man himself: My work is my attempt to organize, comprehend, and visualize the unrevealed areas within my own psyche. Some images are literal interpretations of thoughts and dreams, whilst...

I am Justin Rhody and this is why I shoot film

Justin Rhody is part photographer, part musician, part travel-nut and polymath is the first word that springs to mind when you see the breadth of his body of work and consider his hectic schedule. You may already be familiar with his books and exhibitions but Vernacular Visions, is the one which might have stuck in your mind. It’s Justin’s travelling monthly show of slides found at flea markets, thrift stores, and junk stores from around the US. There’s an impressive breadth to his work, which as you’ll see from the images he’s chosen to share with us today, has something of a “modern classic” look about...

I am Daniel J Schneider and this is why I shoot film

Today’s interviewee is a new media journalist in one of the prettiest parts of the grand old U. S. of A. By day, he works at the Denver Post and by night (I assume), he harbours a not-so-secret passion: documentary photography and collecting film cameras. Of course, it’s the one and only Daniel J. Schneider. We’ll save the the rambling for after the interview. It’s a great read, so scroll down and take the time to savour each and every word. Over to you, Daniel.     Hi Daniel, what’s this picture, then? This is from the very first roll I shot...

FILMSWAP review #03 – EASTMAN DOUBLE-X (5222) by Jonas Lundström

EMULSIVE: By way of a quick preface, regular readers and followers of EMULSIVE-related ramblings on Twitter will be familiar with our Interview and Photographer’s Daypack series should be familiar with Jonas Lundström. In fact, Jonas was also the man behind our very first #filmswap and one of the films he sent over was the subject of our very first FILMSWAP review. Well, he’s back and this time it’s to give us his take on the EASTMAN DOUBLE-X (5222) from Kodak black and white film we sent him back about three months ago. Over to you, Jonas.     Hello everyone, it’s me Jonas Lundström and...

I am Erik Gould and this is why I shoot film

Thoughtful, measured and contemplative are just three words you can use to describe the approach of today’s interviewee, Erik Gould. Take one look and his website and you’ll begin to understand that tapping the shutter button is only a small part of his process; one which includes details about location, history and purpose. It’s amazing work and a true labour of live. We reached out to Erik for an interview some months ago and while it’s been a long while coming, I think it’s been well worth the wait. Over to Erik for an altogether too brief insight into...
