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 whenContinue reading “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”

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 filmContinue reading “INSTAX 2017 no.8”

CAMERA – Lomokino

CAMERA: Lomography Lomokino FILM: Kentmere 400 When the Lomokino was first announced I was excited, and I backed it on Kickstarter. When it arrived I tried it a few times, after which it sat on my shelf collecting dust for years. I found it to be difficult to handle, mostly because they then added aContinue reading “CAMERA – Lomokino”

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.

If I ever find myself at a loss forContinue reading “PLACES – Kew Gardens”

INSTAX 2017 no.4

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour The Barbican Estate has slowly become one of my favourite places in London during the past 3 years I have lived here. At first I found it rather offensive to the eye and thought that because it was called an ‘estate’ meant itContinue reading “INSTAX 2017 no.4”

INSTAX 2017 no.3

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour Some weekends I go out with friends and others are spent alone, but I always try and go out to see something new or to revisit an old favourite. The Horniman Museum and Gardens is a wonderful part of London that I willContinue reading “INSTAX 2017 no.3”

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.

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 aContinue reading “PROJECT – Portraits of Culture”
