On a sunny day in July 2022 while walking through Spitalfields market in London I spied a group of people in the distance. It was then I heard the mellifluous tones I would later come to recognise as music to Tango to. It was, for me at least, a dream come true. I could get […]
Selling goods this way — on rickety wooden tables or simply strewn on the floor — won’t be around forever. It’s too old-fashioned. A short walk away shows an inkling of what will happen; Old Spitalfields market has modernized. Restaurants, coffee stalls, and even the odd designer clothing shop line its edges and if you’re […]
Welcome to today’s fresh EMULSIVE interview. We have a bit of a treat this week in the form of polymath Ellen Rogers. Ellen is a photographer, colourist, lecturer, PhD student and fantasist — among other things. I’m so, so glad to be able to welcome her onto these pages! A couple of the photos are […]
There are a few days left for 2020 (well, 2 at the time of publication) and like 2019, we didn’t see any film stocks being discontinued. A small blessing, given everything else that’s been going on. I was hoping for official news of a couple of new film stocks at least but you’ll have to […]
Expressions of civil unrest have provided many opportunities for photographers to capture the energetic, emotional scenes which are the byproduct of demonstrations, protests, riots, and other manifestations. Crowds offer such a dynamic set of possibilities that I’ve even heard some describe protests as being “cheating,” or “too easy – fish in a barrel.” While it’s […]
Across one weekend in early June, I attended and documented two Black Lives Matter protests here in the UK. As a white man, I might not be able to fully understand what black people specifically have gone through as a result of decades of systemic racism but I can listen and learn from their experiences […]
The two things I like the most are surf and film photography so naturally, the beach and the waves are a constant in my photos. Photography was always on my mind. It’s an old love that never, till now, was taken too seriously. I remember when I was twenty my friends used to pay me […]
As part of my EMULSIVE Secret Santa 2019 present, I got a roll of Silberra U400. Well, this is different, I thought. I had used Silberra film before (their Pan 160 looks very nice, if you’re interested) but not the U400, so I was intrigued. In case you don’t know, Silberra is a Russian company […]
Whenever I go out shooting with film, which seems to be a lot these days, I take my trusty Nikon F2 and the 50mm F/1.4 AI-S. Can I just say that this camera is a bit of a beast?
Traditionally when I go away on holiday, I tend to pick the less touristy places. That way I can get a better feel for a country and its people.
The F2 was Nikon’s mechanical, manual flagship camera of the 1970s.
Today’s interviewee should need no introduction but he gets one anyway.
I managed to grab some time with today’s interviewee as he was making preparations for this year’s Canner Film Festival.
We grabbed some time to have a chat with David Lingham, Wales-based darkroom purist and ex-litho industry stripper (not THAT kind). David’s got some beautiful images to share, as well as some insight into his photographic journey and why
Today’s interviewee is a new media journalist in one of the prettiest parts of the grand old U. S. of A.
