Vive la film!

It’s a good time to be a film photographer. A few weeks ago, Kodak announced they’re bringing Ektachrome back from the grave and are looking into doing the same with Kodachrome. Then we have a brand new black & white ISO 400 film from Bergger, which uses both silver bromide and iodide for extra dynamic range and is available in lots of different formats.

I like film photography, and still keep a handful of film cameras on the go.

Farming in The Gambia

Spending a week in a small village in rural Gambia still ranks as my my most enjoyable job as a photographer to date. I was commissioned by the Medical Research Council to photograph the activities that happen in and around one of their field stations, which range from nutritional research to healthcare.
