TRIP – Sheffield: City Centre

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 After a couple of laps around Park Hill I spent some time wandering around Sheffield City Centre, wasting time until my scheduled train back to London. It was an unexpectedly warm day and I had dressed for the cold, so I was a bit over it and […]

TRIP – Sheffield: Park Hill

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 I decided to write my MA dissertation on photography of brutalist buildings, including Park Hill in Sheffield. I was lucky enough to receive funding to cover my train ticket to Sheffield in order to visit the local archive and to see the estate for myself. The part […]

PLACES – Temperate House, Kew Gardens

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Kodak Ultramax 400 I’ve been going to Kew Gardens frequently over the past four years, and I was always intrigued by the big greenhouse that was boarded off, undergoing restoration works. The Palm House is one of my favourite botanical places to visit, and now Temperate House has reopened there […]

TRIP – Rome 2015

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Agfa Vista 200 In 2015 I made the mistake of visiting Rome in the heat of summer. It was convenient because a friend from Australia was passing through, but the amount of time we spent running back to the apartment to sit under the air-conditioning kind of took away from […]

PLACES – Barbican Conservatory

CAMERA: Yashica 35-ME FILM: Kodak Ultramax 400 If I ever find myself with a lack of purpose on a Sunday I’ll get my shoes on and head to the Barbican Conservatory. It’s one of those ‘hidden secrets’ of London that is no longer hidden, so even though it is now a very popular spot I […]

CAMERA – Zenit E

CAMERA: Zenit E FILM: Lomography 400 colour TAKEN: April 2011 I bought the hunk of metal otherwise known as the Zenit-E at a photography market in Perth.

TRIP – Margate 2016

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Kodak 400 Ultramax I took a day trip to Margate to visit Turner Contemporary, a gallery I had heard so much about. They had an exhibition on which I wanted to see, but now cannot recall what it was. But I do know that I enjoyed it. It was a […]

TRIP – Hastings 2017 pt.1

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 After visiting Bexhill I hopped on a quick train to Hastings, where I spent the rest of my day out. I enjoyed the recently awarded pier, which is now unfortunately in some trouble financially. It was such a contract to the cluttered piers with amusements that you […]

TRIP – Bexhill 2017

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 For a long time I had wanted to visit Bexhill to see the De La Warr Pavilion, a great example of modern architecture.

PLACES – Richmond Park

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Lomography 400 Richmond Park in the winter is a joy. The barren trees and brown landscape, hidden deer and vast vistas all pull you in and the brisk air keeps you from stopping for too long. ©Jennifer Schussler

Leica M3 & Kodak Ultramax 400

CAMERA: Leica M3 FILM: Kodak Ultramax 400 When I was lent the Leica M3 I was so excited by the results I had in black and white that I wasn’t sure that it would do colour as wonderfully. Oh, how I proved myself wrong! I went to one of the usual places I go when […]
