*London Kills Me*
London on 35mm old Kodak Film 2009
London and this story in particular will always have a special place in my memory. Not only because of the great city culture, art and music scene, but also because of the amazing experience I had there. This was how I discovered shooting with analog cameras on 35mm film. It came naturally in the summer of 2009 and stayed like that till nowadays.
During that time I was experiencing my last university years and in the same time I was getting step by step in the professional visual world with Greenmind, a small studio placed in the heart of Bucharest. This is where one day I discovered a bag with 4 roles of 35mm Kodak Professional T-MAX in an old fridge. Most probably they where over their warranty since some years, but they very where well preserved. Shortly after I found a camera that was a perfect fit to shoot this roles an Nikon F90 and this is how everything started.
That summer in 2009 I planned a trip to UK at Leeds Festival where I was suppose to see Radiohead live for the first time. And what better reason then this was to start my film shooting adventure. In between this is what came out from my first 35mm role experience in United Kingdom between London and Leeds.
Here is a sample from the festival – Radiohead – Creep (live)
