The Jacks and Jills of All Films: 35mm Film

As film photographers, we always admire or are inspired by works of other photographers. In this edition of The Jacks and Jills of All Films, we'll see the works and learn a bit about photographers who are masters of 35mm film.

Henri Cartier-Bresson was known for his street photography. He roamed the streets capturing anything and everything. Bresson was also one of the founders of Magnum Photos, and remains to be the inspiration for many photographers.

Stanley Kubrick was best known as the director for such films as ‘A Clockwork Orange’ and ‘Dr. Strangelove’. Not known to many, he was a photojournalist before he became a big director. It is said that he often roamed the streets of New York City with his camera hidden inside a paper bag.

Steve McCurry is an American photojournalist who has won numerous awards for his photos of conflicts and war. He was also the photographer for the famous ‘Afghan Girl’ photo, which became the cover for an issue of National Geographic magazine. The photos above show McCurry’s work in Kodachrome when he shot the last roll ever.

Helmut Newton was a German-Australian photographer who was famous for his fashion photographs,which were widely seen in Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. His photos had unique stylized scenes that make his photos extra special. Although he used a Rolleiflex, he was used a Pentax 35mm camera.

    The Kodachrome shots are amazing. Looks like we really lost a great film there.
