Intermission

In a few weeks I’ll be leaving Bulgaria for good in the first of three transcontinental moves that will eventually see me wash up in Guangzhou in China two years from now. The last month has been, and the next few weeks will be, hectic and there will be no time for blogging. So I’ve… Continue reading Intermission

St. Florian – Sophienkirche

St Florian is the Roman Catholic parish church, Sophienkirche is the Lutheran church. While they have separate worship spaces they share the same complex – the Munich-Riem Church Centre. Some commentators dislike this building because of its simplicity and minimalist look, but I like it for precisely those reasons. The church complex was built to… Continue reading St. Florian – Sophienkirche

Fuji Superia Xtra 400

Here are a few more shots taken with the Fujifilm Superia Xtra film. I find the grain in the first shot particu;arly off-putting and it’s only marginally better in the fourth shot, which is my favourite from the roll. I believe this is one of the many films Fujifilm are pulling from the market. If… Continue reading Fuji Superia Xtra 400

While images from this film taken in good light look well, once shadows appear so does the grain to a much greater extent… Continue reading Fujifilm Superia Xtra 400

21 Rolls

Less than ten weeks left and 21 rolls of film. I’ll be leaving Bulgaria for good in mid-August and while doing a little organising I opened the bag I keep my film in. Twenty-one rolls. I don’t recall buying that much since I prefer to pick up only a few rolls at a time, so… Continue reading 21 Rolls

Ragnar Axelsson – Fjallaland

On a visit to Reykjavik in 2018 I spent a morning at the Museum of Photography, one of five sites making up the Reykjavik City Museum. The Museum holds a collection of over 6 million images dating back to 1860 and around 35,000 of these are accessible online. The exhibition spaces are relatively small but the… Continue reading Ragnar Axelsson – Fjallaland

Another day, another street photography book from New York, London, Paris (though perhaps not Paris so much these days given French privacy laws). There’a a big world out there and for all the growth of digital photography and online photo sharing much of it remains hidden. So from time to time it’s a treat to… Continue reading Featured Collectives
