  1. KODAKFilmCase by RETO Production

    19 Jan 2021

    It’s a confusing time to be a film photographer. On the one hand, we keep hearing stories about ‘huge growth’ in film photography, yet companies with ‘film’ in their name routinely discontinue popular emulsions.  Take Kodak, for example. The Kodak of the 21st century ain’t your daddy’s or grandpappy’s Big…

    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…
