“It was like getting reborn!” says photographer Pietro Bevilacqua about his photographic journey…
“The moment I made a black and white inkjet portrait on an old Epson 1290 was a big moment for me…”
Black and white is important to the future of art in the world because everything is always so busy and nobody can concentrate on anything for more than 5 seconds anymore.
“I feel they are timeless, classic, and seductive.” says @NYRoamer on Instagram.
“I often roamed the city at night, always having my camera, a Leica M6 loaded with high speed 3200 ASA film, with me.”
“There’s a certain quietness and introversion to a black and white print hanging on a wall.”
“You know Robert Delpire a french photograph said one day that, ‘What I like in a photograph is the silence and black and white is silence.'” says Photographer Christophe Thillier, who states that he’s a big user of Kodak TMax 400 film in an email to us. Mr. Thillier is a geologist who works in remote places. He shares with us that he’s generally in deserts and that that’s where silence prevails. Deserts, where the light is extremely sharp and hard, also does well with Kodak TMax 400.
More and more lifestyle photography is being done with film these days; and for great reason.
Kodak T-Max helps make these buildings almost look like scenes from the Twilight Zone.
Kodak T-Max loans itself to pinhole photography very well due to its nature.
“There is a very real, calculable, “cost” to creating an image that makes me think more deeply about what I am attempting to convey in each frame.”
“For me it is like the difference between a cocktail and a glass of wine. Both have their places in our lives.”
“Kodak Tri-X is the most famous film of all time, it has a look in it that is easily recognizable.”
“I started use Tri-X three years ago, and I literally fell in love with that beautiful grain.”
“Connection. Connection and depression.” is what Nick Nemphos says about what inspires him to create photographs.
“When a photograph is captured on film, you are freezing a moment in time that would otherwise only live in your memory.”
These documentary style photographers are bound to get you excited to go out there and shoot.
I began analog photography very shortly after I took interest in photography as a hobby. It was a really beneficial way to learn the fundamentals, and depend on my knowledge rather than the “digital safety net.”
“I compare black and white photography to a language that comes from the past.”
It’s that time again!
