Why sellotape your DIY red scale re spool back together, when a few drops of superglue will do the job and throw in an extra random angle to boot.
This was my first attempt at re-spooling film to red scale it, I chose some of my vast stock of Sainsburys 400 that expired 5 years ago, to see if I could work it out. Just one problem, no sellotape! so I used Superglue to join it together :D I know that solvent based glues give off all kinds of fumes, so worked fast in the hope the film wouldn’t dissolve into a gooey mess before I could get it to the lab (errr… Asda). Rattling through the frames quick sharp, I was done ‘n’ dusted in no time, and left it with the 16-year old in a luminous green polyester uniform for a dip in the c41. On returning, the child in charge apologized and explained that the machine had gone wrong damaging the film, so no charge. I kept quiet about the superglue and back to front emulsion shenanigans and escaped sharpish.

This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide.

There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
