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 andContinue reading “TRIP – Sheffield: City Centre”

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 partContinue reading “TRIP – Sheffield: Park Hill”

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 thereContinue reading “PLACES – Temperate House, Kew Gardens”

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 withContinue reading “TRIP – Cambridge 2015”

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 fromContinue reading “TRIP – Rome 2015”

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 aContinue reading “TRIP – Margate 2016”

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 youContinue reading “TRIP – Hastings 2017 pt.1”

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. I was lucky enough to have a bright and sunny November day for my trip, something rare when visiting the British seaside, especially inContinue reading “TRIP – Bexhill 2017”

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, manyContinue reading “TRIP – Oxford 2014”

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

PLACES – London Docklands

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Fomapan 400 Having lived mostly in the west of London since I moved here 4 years ago, the east of London is somewhere I only travel to if I have a lot of time. For a city that hosts an extensive transport system it always seems to be a massiveContinue reading “PLACES – London Docklands”

PLACES – Victoria & Albert Museum

CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35 FILM: Ilford HP5+ 400 I had 6 shots left on a roll of film so I headed to the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington to see if this particular camera and film combination could work inside the museum galleries. I’ve taken photos in here before, using the Leica M3,Continue reading “PLACES – Victoria & Albert Museum”

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. Like an art historian’s pilgrimage, I wanted to see the Ghent Altarpiece, paintedContinue reading “TRIP – Ghent 2017”

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 aloneContinue reading “TRIP – Brussels 2017”

TRIP – Bristol 2016

One of my best friends from Australia came to the UK last year but wasn’t visting London, so I took myself and my camera to spend a day with her in Bristol. The weather was awful (we literally had to jump a flood to get into a taxi at one point) but I’m glad IContinue reading “TRIP – Bristol 2016”

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 withContinue reading “TRIP – s’Hertogenbosch & Amsterdam 2016”

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”
