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 – Cambridge 2015

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Agfa Vista 200 On a cold winters day in 2015 I travelled to Cambridge for the first time, taking a shaky hand and a low film speed with me. I think the allure of £1 film was misguided, and many of my rolls of Agfa Vista 200 came out with […]

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. It was relatively cheap, although purchased so long ago I have forgotten exactly how much I paid for it. It came with a lens, I don’t know much […]

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 – Oxford 2014

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Agfa Vista 200 While not many of the photos from this roll of film came out, some of them are still among my most favourite all these years later. I remember feeling that something was wrong with the winding of the film, and the final frame consists of many, many […]

FILM – Polaroid SX-70 Time Zero

CAMERA: Polaroid SX-70 Sonar Autofocus FILM: Polaroid Time Zero Instant Film I bought my Polaroid camera on eBay in December 2007, just months before Polaroid announced they were shutting down their instant film production, so I was disappointed to say the least. However, my old SX-70 came with 6 shots in camera and 1 box […]

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 […]

PROJECT – Seeing Red

CAMERA: Robot Disderi 3 FILM: Kodak Ultramax 400 I suffer from creative blocks all the time. Often I can go months without developing or finishing a film that only has a few shots left, and motivation to conceptualise project based work can also be difficult. One way I try to push through this is by […]

INSTAX 2017 no.8

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour Well, I really ran out of steam on the Instax after using it non-stop for a while! The shots below I took in late July and early September, and I haven’t really picked it up since. I think as my stockpile of film […]

TRIP – Brussels 2017

CAMERA: Olympus TRip 35, Holga 120CFN FILM: Fomapan 400, Kodak Portra 400 I have wanted to travel to Brussels for a long time. I bought a Wallpaper guide to Brussels at least a year or two ago, so I devised a plan to visit it this summer on my own. I decided to go alone […]

INSTAX 2017 no.5

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour On sunny weekends when I have nothing planned I force myself to go out and take photos, even if I don’t really feel inspired. Below are some that resulted from a very, very, VERY long walk through London. I got off the train […]

PLACES – Kew Gardens

CAMERA: Holga 120 CFN, Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Kodak Portra 400, Instax Mini colour film Working for a museum in London has many perks, the best being reciprocal free entry to museums, galleries, and some other fantastic (and fantastically expensive to get into) places. If I ever find myself at a loss for […]

INSTAX 2017 no.2

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour Sun glorious sun! Oh how the sun makes London so beautiful. I took myself and my camera to Greenwich because it had been a few years since I had last been, and I had a wonderful time playing with the double exposure function. […]

INSTAX 2017 no. 1

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour I bought my Instax Mini camera as a birthday present for myself in 2013 but haven’t really explored it’s capabilities properly. Having found a fairly stable source of affordable film I decided to stock up on 100 shots and take it out just […]

TRIP – s’Hertogenbosch & Amsterdam 2016

In 2016 I took my first trip to the Netherlands to visit ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Amsterdam. My dad’s family is from Holland, so I had always wanted to visit the country, but an exhibition on the work of Heironymous Bosch was the main thing that made me book my tickets. I fell instantly in love with […]

PROJECT – Portraits of Culture

This project was shot on a single roll of film, which was where the idea really grew from. I love the physicality of film, and this film travelled with me around London to capture the facades of 36 cultural institutions and galleries. Some are more familiar than others, and I ended the project with a […]
