Film is Dead. Long live Film!

I love the vitality, the texture and sense of time and place that film gives you … even using a panoramic 35mm point-and-shoot found in a garage sale for $2! Digital is an electronic approximation, corruptible, intangible. Film is chemical. Film is analogue. Film is real. Long live film.


I just took one of my cameras in to get developed, and now have 6 months of Jeju memories sitting on my desk. I love the feeling of getting your prints back, not knowing exactly what you’ll have. It’s like opening a time capsule, finding images you had forgotten you’d taken; memories you’d forgotten you had; places you’d forgotten you’d been.


‘Why, hello there.’

Summer afternoon over 서귀포 harbour.

Seogwipo Harbour

Snorkelers diving in a giant tidepool, near 외돌개 (oedolgae). Diving down to the bottom you can see, among other things, pufferfish and little black-and-yellow fish that start nibbling on you if you stay in one spot for too long 😛


Ocean view from my apartment in 함덕 (Hamdeok). It was typhoon season, and you can see the sheet of rain approaching on the horizon:
