Over the weekend I participated in my first photography show ever. This show came together thanks to my friend Josh who wanted to put together a benefit show for breast cancer research around film photography.
I’ve never done anything like this and have never considered myself an “artist.” Suffice to say this pushed me way out of my comfort zone. In particular, trying to curate all my random 35mm film photos into something cohesive was way harder than I expected.
The show ended up being a great success and I had a wonderful time. I wound up putting together a set of black and white photos that showed a mood and style that made me fall in love with in film in the first place. A little surreal, a little dream-like. I joked with a few people that if they left feeling a little unnerved about my photos or with a newfound sense of longing, then I was successful.
Here are some of the photos I shared (and some I wanted to but didn’t make the cut). Most shot on a Minolta SRT100 and mainly Ilford HP5+. A few were home developed in D-76.
