Cornish Exploring

Doing a photography degree I got the chance to experiment with different mediums and developing processes (the only technical talk I have up my sleeve, trust me). By far my favourite medium is analogue (film) photography.

I don’t know whether it’s due to the old fashioned look and tinted colours of the photographs or down to the process itself. Taking the photo and just hoping for the best, really thinking about each image taken and having a physical photo to hold on to at the end of it.

In a very visual world we are constantly bombarded with images, it’s a normality to go somewhere and quickly take up to 1,000 photos for the “perfect shot.” This fast paced living is easy to get caught up in. Whether it be photography, fast fashion or the next big popular craze.

It’s nice to take a step away, go back to basics and not look at life through a phone screen or constant lens. To only capture a quick moment of a memory with 1 of 27 shots on the roll of film that week.

I tried to implement this into my life whilst at uni and this is the result:

Here’s some film from 3 years of living in (and exploring) Cornwall!

Each one of these photos brings with it a host of memories and that’s one of the best things about film – the photos themselves age but that raw snapshot is kept forever.

Thanks for the best 3 years Cornwall (and thanks to my Minolta for surviving all the sand and alcohol, love you)
