Imagine yourself walking around in Sweden. You walk towards a narrow street and suddenly you stop right next to a dumpster. The place reeks of leftover food, but you just can't help yourself from the suitcase that's just standing there. You open the suitcase and found 22 rolls of undeveloped film. What would you do?
Believe it or not, this is a true story. The 22 rolls of film belong to six Chinese tourists. A Czech film crew decided to develop these films and go on hunt for these men. The documentary that they made during their gripping investigation became a hit and was viewed by more than 300,000,000 Chinese citizens.
From the words of the official website, “How difficult is it to find 6 men in a country of 1.3 billion people? Every picture truly does tell a thousand words. A documentary about culture and identity, about memory and images, about deception and reality, the film shows that nothing is ever lost.”
Even great photographers need help in making their prints as brilliant as their artistic vision. In this video, Robin Bell talks about developing and printing the pictures of David Bailey and Terence Donovan the old-fashioned way.
Joel Byron is a long time fan of Lomography who uses analog methods at his video and film production agency, BigPlus. Back in 2010, he painstakingly put together the Lomography Caterpillar Matrix video which made over 60,000 hits. This time around, he captures video footage of London with the New Petzval Lens, delivering stunning results.
These photographs, recently digitized through the efforts of the Cushing Center at the Yale School of Medicine, come from the collection of patient photography of Harvey Cushing, M.D., the father of neurosurgery.
Originally from USA, biochemistry student Hayden Williams traveled halfway across the world to continue his studies in Hong Kong. Going to the Far East opened an opportunity for him to explore what he truly love the most: photography. His adventures in his current home, no matter how spontaneous, are captured in well-executed double exposure photographs. Meet our newcomer of the week, haydenwilliams.
