We all have film photos we have stashed away somewhere. Filipina film enthusiast Jonah Liao "dumps" her analog photos taken all around Asia through her instagram account herfilmdump.
We had a quick chat with her about analog passions and documenting adventures.
Hello Jonah! Could you please introduce yourself to the Lomography community?
I'm Jonah Liao, a twenty-year-old student from Manila, Philippines. I got into film photography because of a blogger named Zoe Suen - I look up to her and aspire to be like her, which is why when I found out that she takes photos using a film camera, I decided to try it out as well. Besides this, I also really grew fond of how film adds a certain filter or feeling (I don't know the word for it) to a photo. It makes photos look nostalgic, and I love having that effect.
I use film photography both as a means for me to reminisce on memories as well as to express myself. I believe that through my photos, people are able to see a glimpse of who I am. Personally, I don't label myself as a photographer, because I really just look at myself as a girl taking photos of things she likes using a film camera.
Can you share with us your favorite photos so far?
Sure! I've attached herewith some photos I've taken in the last 2 years using my very handy Olympus MJU Zoom 105 Deluxe. In addition, I am writing below this descriptions of the shots and why I consider them my favorites!
