It’s no secret that for many film photographers, taking photos of their cameras is as enjoyable as making photographs with them. Don’t take my word for it, just take a quick look on social media (and probably your own phone’s camera roll) to confirm it’s the norm rather than the exception. Fine art photographer Kent […]
This is the story of how I came to own a custom-built 35mm slit-scan photography camera and how I set about using it to capture the streets of São Paulo. This story begins in June 1994 when Professor Andrew Davidhazy from Rochester Institute of Technology went to São Paulo, Brazil, to teach a workshop. The […]
Hitchcock’s California is a photographic tribute to Alfred Hitchcock by Aimee Sinclair and myself, along with an essay by Hitchcock film historian Dan Auiler. The book features a portfolio of eighty panoramic photographs — shot on the Hasselblad XPan system — that revisit locations from the Golden State the legendary director used in filming many […]
Exploring how one film photographer created an art gallery in Minecraft for a unique photographic exhibition.
June. Rain. July. Rain. August… Rain again. The days were all the same. What to do in Paris during a summer as rotten as that of 2007? My wife had already been working abroad for several months. I felt lonesome and I was doing my best to keep on carrying on when the phone rang […]
I’ve been trying to keep my local film photography community here in the Philippines creatively engaged as we’re 3 ½ weeks into…
I was 2,500 miles away from home when COVID-19 started to unravel the fabric of our daily routines. On the road for work at a…
In 1993 I had a book published of photographs that had been taken over the previous few years. I was running an art gallery with my wife, the painter Debbie George, where we both worked. We had our own work that we wished to do and had three small children to bring up, so we […]
I lived most of my life in São Paulo, Brazil, with its 20+ million people. I have photographed São Paulo in many different ways, but ever since I got a box of expired 16×20” lith film I have imagined shooting large landscape negatives with lots of details and contrast, this is a small tale about […]
My name is Tim Heubeck and I am a photographer based in Germany. I run a website and Instagram channel; all under the name of wasteoffilm (links at the foot of this article). Photography, for me, is less about what the things we are familiar with look like and more about everything that lays under […]
Like all good projects, this one began without me even realising it. I didn’t intend for this to become such a long term thing, in fact, I originally hadn’t even intended to make anything in particular at all. What started off as a solo holiday around Italy with a couple of cameras, a flight into […]
It was in late May 2019 that I was first sent a 30 minute rough cut of a video called “Tanky McOneshot”. The short film was the first stab at a documentary tracing David S Allen and Simon Riddell’s efforts at creating what might well be the world’s largest darkroom. It’s a grand statement but […]
My favorite podcast for some time now has been the Homemade Camera Podcast. It’s really the podcast I like to build cameras to the best, and I really like. To. Build. Cameras.
This is my ever-changing long-term photo essay about Israel and the Palestinian territories. A place so complex and beautiful at the same time. It isn’t always easy or straightforward to put into words but I have done my best to paint
Over the past two years, I’ve been pouring everything I had emotionally, physically, and financially into a staged photography series I call “Buffalo Soldier”. My project is…
Jazz has a special place in my heart. It’s a musical language that somehow, I can understand by simply feeing my mind and letting the music run through my soul.
Beyond the Visual is an interactive photo booth experience: a combination of visual arts piece, immersive theater, and educational program. We are transforming an…
It’s been over a year since Analogue Wonderland first opened its (virtual) doors and started selling a wide variety of films to analogue photographers around the world.
This is the story of a photo project which started on a whim and grew into something far bigger than I’d imagined. Fingers crossed it’s not finished yet, but more on that later.
There’s a new camera on the block and it just so happens to be the latest addition to the CAMERADACTYL family. I call it the HOMONCULUS 69 – because it can take photographs up to 6×9 in size.
