Do you know Markus Andersen? I didn’t either, not until I watched this video, from the FilmPhotographyTube channel on YouTube. He’s a Sidney-based photographer who -self proclaimed- doesn’t give one hoot about what he uses but he prefers film. He’s a street photographer and he shoots in a style that I like a lot. Have a looksy, it’s 15 minutes well spent.
This extended trailer by London filmmaker and photographer Tyrone Lebon, a hugely inspirational photographer for me, is a “visual poem on contemporary photographers and their practices” and an art project all by itself. Shot on whatever you can think of (65mm, 35mm, super 16mm etc.), this project is slated to finish sometime in 2017, with book and film to be published. Watch it.
Possibly attempting to get more people to shoot with film, there’s some interesting stuff to be found online. Even if it’s just to get you mildly interested. Like this short clip, from ‘Analog – stories of film photography‘. Which is a nice series to watch, by the way. Meet Julian Martin and see why he shoots with film.
