“I’ve never been able to take a picture with a digital camera, because I look at it on the back of the screen, then I try and do a better one, then a better one…then I don’t know what I’m doing” – Richard Billingham
“The photographer has been a slave to the camera for a long time. Photography is not about the camera. Of course, we need a camera. If we want to write a romantic love letter, we need some tool to do it with, but anything, a pencil or a ballpoint pen, is fine” – Nobuyoshi Araki
I left home over two weeks ago, although it actually feels like months, in all that time I haven’t even taken my Nikon DSLR’s out of my camera bag, not once. But I have shot 15 rolls of 35mm film, using just two cameras – an Olympus Mju and a Minolta Hi-Matic, both bought from second-hand shots for less than £10 for both.
15×36=540 – that’s 540 totally individual images, so far, that I won’t see for at least another three weeks…
All of the images here were made using Olympus Mju, Holga, Nikon FM2 and Mamiya 7…it doesn’t really matter which is which.
