It’s been a year since my last bag write up, a lot of cameras and countless rolls since I’ve come to this setup. Anyway from left to right here’s what I’ve got:
I’ve recently been processing a lot of my photos through silver efex pro (a free piece of software now owned by google that simulates black and white darkroom processes) whether it be digital shots, colour film photos, or black and white film. I feel like this step in my process gives my digital files or scans the chance to become a negative of sorts. I found the process gave my photos a more finalised look, closer to that of a darkroom print; a final form. I’m sure I’ll tweak the particular look with time, an example would be the size of the border. The aesthetics definitely become increasingly difficult to place in time, and it is if anything a nod to photographers such as Fukase, Junku Nishimura, and Justin White.
I have recently moved to Melbourne, Australia after 5 years of Perth. The amount imagery in the last 12 days that I’ve been documenting here so far is quiet bewildering. The beat of a new city has made me hyper vigilant to make photographs but what has become incredibly obvious since arriving is that these early days are extremely important for those personal moments.
