I am Joseph Gamble and this is why I shoot film

Have you ever seen an image that stopped you dead in your tracks? It last happened to me about a year ago, maybe more, maybe less. I was browsing an online gallery of desktop wallpapers, looking for something a little abstract to fill my monitors when I stumbled on a picture of an industrial ruin, or so I thought. It seemed to me that I should know what it was but I couldn’t quite place it. Once I was finally done staring, thinking and trying to recall where I’d seen something like it before, I mentally put the image to...

Film culture: ‘Moments in Place’

Relationships that are established by geometry, and then, gesture and light, those are often the hallmarks of a successful photograph.   We’re incredibly pleased to be able to talk to you about Joseph Gamble’s new quasi photographic retrospective, which kicked off on September 4th at Colorado Mountain College’s Art Share Gallery. It’s one of his largest exhibitions to date, covering 32 of his images and encompassing his travel and street photography from 2003-2014. We’ll be featuring more from Joseph next week in an upcoming “…this is why I shoot film” interview but in the meantime, he was kind enough to give us a...

Never Forget – Craig Pindell (2002)

We wanted to do something to mark the 9/11 attacks and whilst searching for the most appropriate way to mark the time, our thoughts led to Craig Pindell and his 9/11 remembrance project, Never Forget. With his kind permission, we’re posting one of Craig’s images and some of his words here today. About the project, from the man himself: “Like almost everyone I know, I can remember exactly where I was when I heard that airplanes had crashed into the twin towers, the Pentagon, and in the field in Pennsylvania. I also can remember the sick feeling, the anger, the...

I am Brittany Markert and this is why I shoot film [NSFW]

Photographers come from all backgrounds and walks of life. Contrary to (some people’s) popular belief, not every young photographer jumps straight out of a related education program and straight into shooting for the NG. Some of us come from completely disassociated disciplines and have photography thrust on us by an unseen hand. Brittany Markert is firmly one of the latter, having started her formative years as a mathematician, no less! Well travelled, with a dense character to her written style and a surreal slant to her photography, we recently sat down with Brittany to explore her drives, motivations and...

Film review: Efke KB-25 – 35mm format

Shortly after opening the doors to EMULSIVE I kicked off a little #FILMSWAP project on Twitter. The idea was brutally simple; while I’m lucky enough to have access to a wide range of film stocks and formats, there remain a few – quite a few in fact – which stay out of every day reach unless I get a little help…so why not get a little help and have some fun while doing it? What might be a commonplace stock for me could be a rarity for someone on the other side of the world and vice-versa, so I searched out some friendly faces and...
