My journey from digital to film

My journey from digital to film

Lukas Binder is a photographer from Vienna, Austria, and his photography journey started about three years ago, shooting the beauty in mundane and simple things. Working as a software engineer, in photography he went the opposite way, from digital to film, almost as a therapeutic activity. On analogue cameras, he appreciates the beauty of the different models and formats, their simplicity and robustness, the shutter sound and overall feeling.

Having become a photographer by chance, Rick Davy from Cornwall uses an eclectic choice of cameras, everything from medium-format SLRs to plastic point-and-shoots. But one thing remains constant, his growing interest in expired film, which offers the exact visual language he was looking for in his projects.
