Captured this while exploring Vienna University with @mckphotography and @doyoudevelop — swipe to see Jahan’s BTS of this shot, a mirror shot of all three of us (thanks, Jahan!), and the first shot of a roll of Ilford Delta 400 I snapped on my M6.

One of Vienna’s lovely trams. The network has been operating since 1865, and many of the older cars are still in service.

Another favourite moment from Vienna. Spent my last afternoon wandering the streets looking for patches of light and interesting people. The city did not disappoint.

One of my favourite moments from Vienna. I noticed this woman walking toward me about 10 seconds beforehand, and quickly crossed the street to frame and focus just as she walked by.

If you’ve seen my recent IG Story from Vienna (saved to a Highlight on my profile, if you missed them), you’ll know I visited Vienna a little while ago, for a weekend of exploring and experiencing the city without using a smartphone.
⠀
All my IG Stories were shot on a Lomo instant camera (anything I would usually use my iPhone to shoot), and the rest of the time I captured my surroundings and the people I met on film. This was a lovely commission, as part of the city’s Unhashtag Vienna campaign: Encouraging people to explore the city without the constant distraction of documenting everything in realtime on a smartphone.
⠀
As a photographer who loves film for the lack of distractions, this was a perfect fit — so I used the opportunity to do the one thing our smartphones seem to prevent more than anything else: Interact with other people, capturing portraits of some of them along the way.
⠀
I’ll be publishing a travelogue of my trip soon, and you can read an excerpt now on the mini-site for the Unhashtag campaign: unhashtag.vienna.info — also linked from my saved Story.
⠀
I’ll always remember this visit to Vienna, for the near-complete absence of technology over those few days, and the deeper connections formed with people and places as a result. See the comments below for details of each portrait in this set

Film from the archives: Iceland, November 2015. We stopped for a picnic in this amazing spot nestled somewhere below Eyjafjallajökull — possibly my favourite lunch spot yet.

Louis in London. From a roll I scanned during WPPI at the @fujifilm_profilm booth — played around with the settings and managed to get this frame around the image. Kinda like the look, need to get my hands on another 35mm Frontier scanner soon…  #ishootfujifilm #leica #leicam6

10 days until my new workshop — Building a Story — with Leica Akademie and The Photographers’ Gallery.
.
Two days of personal, hands-on, focused work to help you curate your photos to create the essential storytelling elements needed for books, photo essays, and exhibitions.
.
I’ll also share experiences of how Craig Mod and I approached our book “Koya Bound: Eight Days on the Kumano Kodo” — from concept to curation and design.
.
London, April 13–14 — tickets (and full schedule) available via the link on my profile.

Mariann (@mariannjosefsen), just before sunset (about 1:30pm) last month in Tromsø. I was there with @stivt filming test footage for a documentary project I’ve been slowly working on for the last 3 years. Hoping to start filming this summer, in Norway, Russia, and North America — now working to secure funding and sponsors for equipment/travel, so the crew can be confirmed and pre-production can begin by late April... if you’re interested in supporting the project and want to know more, send me a DM or email  #pentax645n #fuji400h #makeportraits #filmphotographic

The Contax Tix is a dead camera — or rather, it shoots a now-dead format: APS. APS (Advanced Photo System) was created by Kodak in the 1990s to be the future of film, at least for consumers. This 24mm film had all sorts of modern improvements: 16x9 native ratio, a magnetic strip to record things like the date and optional crops for printing (P for Panoramic, cropping from the top and bottom, and C for Classic, a 2x3 crop from the left and right — this is where we get APS-C for the smaller digital sensors that followed). Film was stored within its canister, which also had handy markings on one end to let you know if it was a fresh roll, partially shot, completed, and finally processed. The film is all expired (the last batches being made in 2011), in short supply, and I’m absolutely loving the results from this tiniest of Contax cameras (note: many other camera brands also made APS cameras). Swipe to see the full HD version. #contax #apsfilm #contaxtix

Nighttime in Ella, Sri Lanka. I had a few frames of Cinestill left in the Pentax 67 and wanted to clear the roll before sunrise, so wandered around for an hour searching for neon and good reflections — found a parked bus down a side street, lined up my shot, set the shutter to 1/15 (yup), used the bus as a support, and waited for a car or tuk tuk to pass and pump its brakes. It took 20 minutes before a vehicle with working brake lights passed in the right direction. 🤣 #cinestill #6x7 #120film #filmisnotdead #pentax67

My archives are full of images I love that no one has ever seen. Passing moments, splashes of light and color; images I capture because I need to; not for a project, or for Instagram, or for anyone else — just for me. Sharing them here (and elsewhere) gives me an excuse to enjoy them for myself, as most of the joy for me is in making the frame in the first place, rather than seeing the finished result. Forget the algorithms, the audience, the requirements and expectations. Capture what makes you happy, and if the mood strikes you, share it. #coffee
