    Hughesdale Station | Olympus  µ[mju:]-II | Kodak Portra 160 “I am worried about the safety and privacy of my children, that they are not going to be preyed upon by paedophiles looking into the pool when they are swimming.” This is not a comment you’d expect to be associated with…

  3. Stocking up on Stock

    05 Jul 2018

    Berlin, 2015 I wonder how long “film” will remain part of Fujifilm’s product line up? This is the sort of thing that keeps me up at night, though only usually after my 2 year-old has declared 3am “have a play” time. But I digress. 2018 has seen Fuji-‘film’…

  6. Getting the Band(ing) Back Together

    21 May 2018

    My Pacific Image PF120 Pro (l) and Nikon Coolscan 5000ED (r) in happier days Dear readers, I have been living a lie. For the past little while, I’ve assured you that I was settled on film scanners. That I had made my (flat)bed and was relatively content sleeping in it:…


  7. A Terrible Vista

    10 Mar 2018

    “THEY’RE DEAD. THEY’RE ALL. DEAD.” Two more films are said to have bitten the dust: AgfaPhoto Vista Plus 200 and 400 colour negative films. It’s an open secret that these films are manufactured by Fujifilm in Japan, however these emulsions have been a cheap and reliable product for many film…


  8. Negative News That isn’t Pushing It

    23 Feb 2018

    Every day in the 21st century when a new or re-engineered photographic film is announced is a good day. Today is one of those days with Kodak announcing the un-discontinuation of P3200 TMAX — the last great high-speed black and white film (put down your pitchforks, I’ve just never liked…


  9. London’s Brutal Reality

    13 Feb 2018

    I like big blocks and I cannot lie. Big blocks of raw concrete, that is. And as a fan of concrete architecture, there are few cities better for appreciating this polarising material than London. From grand cultural buildings to small-scale functional infrastructure, raw concrete altered London’s post-war cityscape more than…

    17 Jan 2018

    Billingham Hadley Pro BeginningFor some photographers, the camera bag is a vital piece of equipment.

  12. Things I Use: Voigtländer VC Meter II

    13 Feb 2016

    I own quite a bit of photography gear, but I am not a collector. Every item I own I use at one point or another. When I travel, so do my cameras. As a result, some of my gear is a bit cosmetically (and sometimes operationally) blemished. My Voigtländer VC…


  13. Travelling with Film: 7 (or so) Tips for Surviving the Airport

    23 Feb 2015

    [A]irports are sites where identity is confirmed or questioned; they are spaces of public display; they are contested zones where privacy and national security vie for priority; they are complex factories for the production of patriotism and the privilege of mobility. At the same time, airports can be considered as…
