A couple of weeks ago, stuck with no gigs for the week and suffering through the anxiety-filled boredom that freelancing can suddenly bring, I decided to fly to New York (only an hour from Toronto) to shoot some street shots.
Let's start with the elephant in the room - this camera comes with some serious bling. It is in fact, a special gold-dipped version officially called the "Rolleiflex 2.8GX Expression 75 years edition".
Combining two recent trends, namely de-cluttering and a revival of mid-century technology, I rediscovered a beloved family camera, the Yashica Mat and some expired and now discontinued Kodak Plus X 120 film.
Plates, films, stars and scenes. I've been following today's fresh interviewee (on social media!) pretty much since EMULSIVE came into existence back...
To take you on this journey, I'm sharing with you my contact sheets and pulling out a few of the finished photographs from each.
After all the roads and film stocks I've shot with over the last couple of months, all have lead to Eastman Kodak Double-X 5222. I've been searching for that go-to film by trying pretty much everything out there.
