subversiveinfluence: Facebook has reminded me that six years ago TODAY I bought a Lomo Smena Symbol, my first fully manual film camera. Six years later, my first exhibition has just finished, photography articles I’ve written have been published, I’ve reviewed a lens for Lomography, camera resources I’ve developed have been downloaded thousands of times and am just planning out my second short shot to film. Film has given me so much over the last few years, it’s been a great help with my mental health and has helped me to slow life down. Here’s to film! (Photo shot to 35mm film on a Diana Mini camera, a beautiful plastic lens legend that jams like a bitch!)
