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.

CAMERA – Capta II

CAMERA: Capta II FILM: Kodak 160VC Expired 2001 TAKEN: September 2011 The Capta II is a strange beast. Made of bakelite, heavy and almost impossible to open, and elusive when searching the internet for any information. I’ve only used it once as now the red frame window is too foggy to look through and I’mContinue reading “CAMERA – Capta II”

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.

Leica M3 & Kodak Ultramax 400

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 byContinue reading “PROJECT – Seeing Red”

TRIP – Ghent 2017

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35, Holga 120CFN FILM: Fomapan 400, Kodak Portra 400 Ghent may not be high on everyone’s list of places to visit, but as someone who has studied art history I knew I wanted to visit it for a while.

CAMERA: Olympus TRip 35, Holga 120CFN FILM: Fomapan 400, Kodak Portra 400 I have wanted to travel to Brussels for a long time.
