Or is it Historic Future? Or Both?
A couple of weeks ago, while cleaning closets, I found a bunch of film rolls. All expired.
My first reaction was to throw them away as I work(ed) only digital and I no longer have my analogue gear. But there was a little voice inside my head saying “I wouldn’t do that if I were you…”. As I am very obedient (my husband will disagree, but we don’t ask him, do we?…) I listened to this voice.
Shortly after that “discovery” I made another one: lomography, not in the least through the beautiful pictures of Shimmering Grains – a special thanks! – (visit her fantastic images: click here). Plus in one of my favorite magazines, “Flow”, I read an article about photographer Jena Ardell. She makes Polaroid images and also works with… you guessed it… expired film. I instantly fell in love with the silkiness of those images…
I’m not only obedient but also quite curious. I wanted to try that!
So, last Saturday I bought me a little Sardina, it was on sale, double pleasure!
May I present to you: Domino (the name of the little Sardina cam, which I quite like, as it also reminds me of a song of my favorite Belgium pop group).
