Community: Interviews and film parties
There are over 200 interviews on EMULSIVE. You’ll find interviews with film photographers of all ages, levels of experience and degrees of fame and infamy. On top of that, there are interviews with analogue industry figures and organisations, from ILFORD to Kodak Alaris and CineStill to Lomography.
Finally, if that’s not enough, a new series, “In Conversation With…” talks to labs and other service providers about their businesses and the current state of the industry.
Inspiration: photo sets, stories and photography
This collection of articles shows of photography by yours truly, photosets and stories submitted by the EMULSIVE community and “5 Frames With…” – a series of short form articles showing off five frames of the same film taken with the same camera and lens in conjunction with Hamish Gill over at 35mmc.com.
