Passion projects abound in our global film photography community – you’re reading one right now – and I’ve been lucky enough to have published details of a fair few this year.

The most popular ten of this year follow below but don’t let that fool you into thinking that’s all there were. Check out the rest here and then scroll on down.

If you’ve got a project of your own – big or small – that you’d like featured, please drop me a line and let’s talk!
