It was early in 2020, and like many of us, I felt lost… We all have endured every little aspect of the pandemic and it had an impact on all of us… And so it had on me. To be honest, it was the best thing that happened to me and my photographic dream. It […]
“Polarity” is a current project of the Pixels and Grain Collective. Very simply, these are portraits of power and telecommunications poles in our local neighbourhoods, made by members of the collective in Sydney and Thailand during the 2021 coronavirus lockdowns. 2021 was optimistic in Sydney. We had more or less crushed the coronavirus numbers […]
During the long pandemic quarantine, I bought a laser cutter the size of a small Volkswagen to cut ventilator prototype parts, Brooklyn Film Camera Polaroid scan trays, and a number of other photographic equipment parts. I bought the largest cutter that I could fit in my shop, because I had been dreaming of the 20×24 […]
Greetings! I am Arnas Špaka, founder of the NoColorStudio initiative. Word is slowly getting around about the new film stock that NoColorStudio produces, but as we’re not that well known yet, I am here to talk a little more about it.
Let’s say there’s this wild bear in your neighborhood. He terrorizes the children and snaps his teeth at the elderly. He breaks into people’s homes, stomps on their plants, destroys their lawn furniture, and eats their food. Although the bear is being his bear-self, people are frustrated and they have concerns. The wild bear in […]
Climate change will force humans to cut their dependency on fossil fuels or the consequences will be catastrophic. But how can we really grasp and put our consumption of oil into a relatable context? Numbers as such millions of oil barrels produced per year don’t seem to make sense to anyone outside of the oil […]

When embarking on the journey of creating this passion project as a personal creative outlet in 2015, I had certain ideas about how things could evolve over time. I saw potential in the idea of a collaborative, quality-first, and when-ready publication. I still do, obviously. At some point I caught myself daydreaming about publishing this […]
Cyanotype — also known as the “blueprint” or “sunprint” process, among other names — is a photographic process that has been practiced by photographers for ~180 years. Through the magic of combining two chemicals — ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide — you can produce a striking blue image in a matter of moments. Coated […]
I recently had the opportunity to talk with David Hancock about his recently launched Kickstarter campaign: large format pinhole cameras from 5119 Cameras. You may know David from his eponymous YouTube channel and articles here on EMULSIVE. Ninth-generation Iterations. The final cameras have improved, aluminum shutters and shock-cord-retained film holder backs for improved usability. David […]
My Geiger counter crackled and I read the dial: one thousand counts per minute, roughly twenty-seven times normal background radiation….
Editor’s note: In early 2018 I invited Paul McKay to tell the story of how he created Analogue Wonderland. At the time, it was a new online store based in the UK selling everything from photographic film stocks to developing chemistry and film photography accessories. Each year since then, I’ve invited Paul back to give […]
Earlier this year I had the privilege of crossing paths with Maryke Musson, CEO of the Two Oceans Aquarium Education Foundation. Little did I know that she would become one of the most influential people in my life. She did not only introduce me to the Education Foundation and the numerous conservation programs they are […]
This film emerges as a direct outcome of Covid-19 related quarantine, the nectar of staying alone, indoors for 60 days, (during April & May 2020) engrossed in house chores..

In 2013 I got my first Polaroid camera, and since then I have been journeying into the world of instant film. From the inception of the Impossible Project to its recent merger, I eagerly followed the rediscovery of the formula for instant film, but was always frowning when I had to trash a battery. When […]
I stand at the edge of the forest, my dilapidated Canon in hand. Mist rises from the trees, as two pigeons snap their wings in hasty exit. A path snakes ahead, deep into the wooded dark. Raising my camera, I peer through the scuffed lens. I hold my finger to the shutter, waiting for the […]
I have been looking for this historical artwork for some years – a useable Dallmeyer 3B Portrait Petzval 290mm f/3 lens made during the 70s — the1870s. Finally, I got it (with some help). The lens is at the heart of my project, “Inspired”, which will be published in a book — you can register […]
