One of the great things about photography is that we can look at the world and preserve that image on print instead of just looking at it again and again in our heads. Also, we can create a world as we’d like it to be – with everything just the way we like them.
That is exactly the feeling you get when you look at these landscape shots from photographer Mark Goslingstar. Goslingstar hails from Carlisle in Northern England and he shares the view from his hometown through film cameras.
His film photographs of many great types of scenery all have one thing in common – the texture of film. Goslingstar’s scenes in his film world are captured with different models of cameras like a Hasselblad 903, a Diana from the 1960s and a pinhole camera.
Mark’s experimentation with film photography yielded amazing results, specifically worth mentioning are his Kodak Aerochrome photographs and his infrared film photographs taken using his Diana camera. Indeed, his photographs have as much character as the cameras he used to shoot them.
