I don’t remember when it started, but at some point in the last five years, I began using photography as a means to explore a place. I believe that with photography, one is always getting to know new areas, or at the very least getting new perspectives on old areas, but it isn’t always with […]
I had been planning to upgrade from my Leica IIIf for a while; it’s a great camera but it makes taking photos a complicated process. First, cut the film so that it fits the camera, place it on the spool, insert it, wind it, only then select the shutter speed and realise a few shots […]
Above the Arctic Circle, amidst the wide green plains, enclosed in looming blue peaks, the ‘King’s Trail’ covers 400km of land devoid of civilisation, save for the indigenous Sami, their reindeer, and the occasional shelter. Here is where I found myself last year, Leica M4 in hand, photographing one of the most beautiful places on […]
A few months back, I wrote an article here about how I met some camels while on a desert shoot. They appeared out of nowhere, cresting over a dune some ways away, just as I found myself at the end of a roll of T-MAX 100. I went about opening the camera, but in my […]
After an 8-month hiatus, I’d like to welcome you all back to the EMULSIVE interview. Yes, yes, 2020 be damned, etc. Last year was a challenging one for me and I took a bit more of a hit than I expected but, as I kept telling myself, there are two things to remember: 1) things […]
I have been using a 50mm lens almost exclusively for around two years, and I recently wanted to switch it up. The 35mm focal length has been on my radar for a few months, so when a good price for the Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm f/2.5 PII appeared online it caught my attention. Within the week […]
May 2020. With COVID in full swing, I decided to leave the city and make the hour-long trip to the desert to capture some landscapes. Still getting used to the new (to me) Leica M4, I brought it along with a Summicron 5cm f/2 and a box of assorted film stocks. There was a beautiful, […]
I discovered this location – Dakota Crescent – whilst riding to my usual skate spots. It is one of Singapore’s oldest estates built in circa 1958. That is even before the independence of Singapore. The name itself is derived from Douglas DC-3 “Dakota” aircraft. The designs of these flats were close to that of towns […]
I live in North-East Lincolnshire in the UK and was raised in the coastal town of Cleethorpes, a once glorious Victorian seaside resort whose star has now largely faded.
I shot this roll during a visit to Hull in the United Kingdom.
