Primal Scream - “Jesus”
I received my film from Dwayne’s today, and I’m kind of amazed at how most everything turned out. Barring a few rolls that were shot in crap lomography cameras, everything turned out great. These photos, which were shot when I went to New Orleans in 2001, are strait scans from film that had sat in a filing cabinet in my room for over a decade. Not bad, I must say.
It’s been a great morning.
I haven’t been posting much in the way of new work recently due to a combination of editing/sequencing a forthcoming zine, the holiday season, and various personal/family maladies.
However, tomorrow’s outgoing mail should hopefully rectify that.
Also, why has posting photos of massive amounts of unused film become a thing? It’s great that you’re supporting film manufacturers, but having the materials doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be used.
I just found several unexposed rolls of APS film buried in my filing cabinet that have been expired for close to a decade. I never in my life thought I would be shooting with this format again, but here we are.
