Analogue Fashion Photography by Aysha Banos

Although she was only a college freshman in 2009 when she first picked up a film camera, New York City-based 22-year old photographer Aysha Banos already has more than a decade of experience with documenting using cameras starting from age five.

A Canon AE-1 owned by her late grandfather was the first still film camera that Aysha had ever shot with. At five years old, though, her very first camera was a VHS video camera, and throughout her life she has used various other video and disposable cameras. With her first cell phone camera, she delved further into photography. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York.

While working as an intern for an LA-based fashion photographer, Aysha became fascinated with fashion photography. In an interview with I Still Shoot Film, she revealed that she “made an oath to only shoot film” in honor of her grandfather, who passed away a couple of years ago. “I love its accuracy and grain, the lack of detail yet elaborate enough for a beautiful focused image,” she said. Lastly, one important thing that Aysha had learned from film photography is “the virtue of patience.”
