I am Joffrey Carpentier and this is why I shoot film

I’ve been looking forward to this one! Welcome to the hectic world of Joffrey Carpentier, Frenchman, Photographer, Psychiatrist and fleet-blooded traveller based in the east of France. There’s been a lot of back and forth to bring you Joffrey’s words and images; and you should be seeing a little bit more over the coming weeks! Over to you, Joffrey!     Hi Joffrey, what’s this picture, then? JC: Shibuya crossing, Tokyo 2014. I had a very special feeling watching this place. I felt the whole world within a view; like a dance. Cars, red lights, people…many people. Photography holds...

Mumbai 01: Pushan, Saint Christopher and Loki Walk into a Bar

MUMBAI–The smell hits you first. From the first moment India surrounds you, absorbs you into its atmosphere, its rush and flow. You have spent hour upon hour in the grey, nowhere interzone of the jet-plane. The air hisses white noise, your prayers and the engines keep you aloft as, unnoticed, you cross borders and lines of latitude. The flight finally ends, the seals are breached, and the air of London or New Jersey or wherever you took off from escapes into the sub-continental night. This was my first time in India, my first in Asia. I fumbled for my...

I am Damien Mountain Woods and this is why I shoot film

We managed to grab some time with Damien Mountain Woods, Australian and recent film convert. Damien’s photography has taken a more personal tone since he switched over from digital and it’s now time to get his take on the film medium and most importantly, why he shoots it. Over to you, Damien.     Hi Damien, what’s this picture, then? I recently went on a trip to Europe, visiting 13 countries. This is Lake Bled, Slovenia. One of the most picturesque places I have ever seen. It was the most glorious of days, armed with both cameras (2x Canon...

Photo Story – Montagne coperte di neve e la luna di Antonio Biagiotti

(English version) Italia – Era una mattina di Febbraio, molto fredda ma con un cielo luminoso e terso. Conoscevo bene il punto di ripresa perché mi ci ero recato molte volte nella speranza di catturare “l’attimo fuggente”, quell’attimo che la natura concede con parsimonia e sembra  disposta a condividere esclusivamente con chi è stato disposto a svegliarsi prima dell’alba. Molte volte mi ero recato in quel luogo e molte volte mi ero allontanato deluso perché le condizioni atmosferiche non erano mai quelle che avevo visualizzato nella mia mente, soprattutto la luna non si trovava mai nella posizione sperata, nella...

Photo story – Snow covered mountains and the Moon by Antonio Biagiotti

(Versione italiana) Italy – It was a February morning some years ago. Very cold but with a bright and clear sky. I knew the point I was heading for, having travelled there previously many times before in the hope of capturing that “fleeting moment”; one of those times that nature gives very sparingly and only seems willing to share with those who have been willing to wake before dawn. Each time I had visited this place before I was turned away disappointed because the weather conditions were never like those I had pictured in my mind. Specifically, the moon was never in the...

I am Drew Amyot and this is why I shoot film

Today’s interviewee is Drew Amyot, Nova Scotian born and raised. Drew seemingly relies on getting his inspiration from a full cup of hot coffee and a suitable playlist of tunes but I think there’s a little bit more behind it than just that. Read on to find out what drives him to produce such beautiful imagery. Over to you, Drew.     Hi Drew, what’s this picture, then? DA: This is a wild blueberry field in rural Nova Scotia.

I am Nick Prideaux and this is why I shoot film

Today we’re talking to Australian Nick Prideaux, transplanted to Bangkok after an extended stint in Tokyo for the past five years. I guess you could call Nick a purist for the most part. Mostly one camera and mostly one film stock. Over to you, Nick.     Hi Nick, what’s this picture, then? NP: This is a picture I took recently of my girlfriend on my rooftop in Tokyo. This was taken on one of those first evenings of early spring, where you can feel the onset of the seasons changing. My rooftop in Tokyo was one of my favorite...

I am Joe Smith and this is why I shoot film

Here’s something a little different. Welcome to the wonderful abstract world of Joe Smith and his pre-exposures, multiple exposures and ingenious use of light and textures. Hope you’re hungry, it really is a feast. Over to you, Joe.     Hi Joe, what’s this picture, then? JS: Kodachrome through my Canon EOS 50e twice. Exposed once in Manchester and then a second time in the Lake District. I’d wanted to merge the two contrasting landscapes and definitely lucked out with the frame alignment for a first attempt.
