I was given a bunch of T-Max in 35mm as a gift by a friend and it is one of the films I’ve had the opportunity to shoot many rolls of. I love it because it delivers great contrast between mid-tones and at the same time makes very pretty dark tones. At ISO 100, it’s a perfect match for a plastic camera to shoot outdoors and it delivers minimal grain, which is nice for making prints, which I’ve a few of off of T-Max 100 negatives and they’ve all been incredibly detailed when blown up to 5×7. There are just certain films that take to the kind of light that comes through plastic and single glass lenses, and I think T-Max 100 is one of those films. If you’re developing for yourself and you have either D-76 or the T-Max developer, it’s also a great time saver.
That’s why it’s my weapon of choice.

Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco.
