In Japan, Fujifilm NEOPAN 100 ACROS was the least expensive black and white film. However, with the film no longer being made, I needed to find a replacement. This is where New Oriental Seagull 100 comes in. This film is nearly the same price as ACROS at about $6.50 US […]
Traditional photographic processes require forethought, preparation and involvement on the part of the photographer. To demonstrate this, I made crumpets from scratch and then made cyanotypes using them. Because, obviously.
I bought my Rolleiflex K4B off eBay about a year ago and got a pretty sweet deal for it. Since then, it has become pretty much my favorite camera to shoot personal work with. Mine came with the Carl Zeiss Tessar 75mm f/3.5 lens, and the images it produces are […]

I was born in Charleroi, Belgium. This city had a long and successful past of coal mining and is therefore scattered with coal heaps.
