In 2014, Film Rescue International sent me their very own disc film that they’ve been working on - to shoot with. It was a wonderful project to be a part of and given the opportunity to try something new with film. I shot my family portraits as usual, but little did they know that our family was growing (a month away from Ella being born at the time) so those photos were as real as it gets. With that said, this was Avery refusing to leave IKEA and it was the start of a disc film story. He turned 9 yesterday and the timing couldn’t be better to look back at these memories. Film Rescue will be featured in my next video, so stay tuned. #LifeOnFilm#FilmStories#Filmsnotdead#FilmFeed#FilmCommunity#FilmForever#DiscFilm#BelieveinFilm#Youtube#StayTuned#ShootFilm
‘Caulton’s Farm’ from FARMED 20”x24” silver gelatin hand print. “Classic, but neither modernist nor pictorial, FARMED evokes photographic history without over-relying on any of it. Sagely ambivalent, it looks simple and obvious, but is complicated and weighty. And it is - in its own quiet way - extraordinarily beautiful. Can we ask any more of art than that? “ Simon Bowcock, Photomonitor
It’s been hard for me to see so many people who don’t know what my profession is like sharing opinions on things my profession should do. I decided to have an open forum kind of debate with my 7th & 8th grade students today to hear their opinions on training & arming teachers & y’all, it was so rewarding. They were so respectful. They listened to each other. They changed their minds or they stuck to their side, & they asked good questions. The results were pretty split by the end of the day & I’m okay with that. Our main goal was to not discredit anyone’s feelings & to make sure everyone could be heard. I assured my students that I would die for them, 100% a million times over. But would I kill for them? Could I live with that? That’s a different question. Statistically speaking, it would likely be one of my students attacking my school, which could only make things harder. All in all, people can keep blaming millennials for things, but I think Generation Z just might be alright. // The photo was captured on Kodak Ektar 100 film at Flatside Pinnacle. Low light & a slow shutter made it turn out pretty awesome if you ask me.
