Old Film in an Old Camera
April 27, 2012
I found a roll of lomography film my sister got me for Christmas a few years ago and I figured that since it had been sitting in a not-so-film-friendly environment for such a long time, it was probably no good. But I decided to stick it in one of my Olympus Pen-FVs and hit the town. Carting around this 55-year-old light-leak canister held together with electrical tape and hope, I went to a party and then did some other things. The result was pretty grainy, but better than I expected, so check 'em out.
Given my current main source of income, I’m pretty interested/invested in indigenous/traditional cultures. So I very much enjoyed Taylor Weidman’s piece Mustang: Nepal’s Former Kingdom of Lo published earlier this week. Take a look at these rare snapshots of this isolated culture.
