EMULSIVE January 2018: month in review

January 2018 was a cracking start to the year here on EMULSIVE. With so many articles and tidbits being published every week, it’s easy to get lost in all the film photography goodness but wait, here’s a solution…possibly.

At the beginning of each month, I’ll be giving you all a round up of all the articles, interviews, photography and thought pieces published in the previous month on EMULSIVE. Since it’s now February 2nd, let’s take a look at the month that was January 2018, starting off with the top ten most popular and engaging articles published that month.

This non-top-10-top-10 represents all the stuff you spent the most time reading on the website and via social media; and is grouped by review, article, interview, etc.

…and then there’s everything else

Believe it or not, I’m seeing last month’s content in this format for the very first time and I’m honestly a little stunned by it all.

Spoiler: there’s quite a bit!

And that’s a wrap. See you next time.
