2013-10-31 2

Architectural photographer Robert Burley engages in a riveting project of documenting the decline of the once powerful industry of film. Check it out!

While we are fervent film enthusiasts, we don’t delude ourselves in saying that film is at its peak. Photographer Robert Burley, using his trusty large format camera, actually went to the film factories of Kodak and chronicled its demolition in this ambitious, albeit heartbreaking project. He also went to Canada, the United States, and Europe, shooting the factories involved with the production of film. Have a look at the sneak peak video he has prepared for the launch of his book.

    I don't think film will completely disappear for reasons of fine art, but I think the variety of products, particularly false color and specialized color, like tungsten, and IR will be gone, particularly in 35mm, leaving just C-41 color and regular B&W. I missing already IR films. I'm going to be shooting UV flowers, this Spring, but that will be on Tungsten CineStill 800 with special filter and quartz lens. It's not hopeful. I'll be shooting IR in digital.

    Mr. Burley should do a documentary about Ferrania's revival of it's old factory & the Impossible Project. But I guess he prefers to join the "Film is Dead" bandwagon.
