The digital revolution has changed our lives forever. Cameras are marketed by pixel count, wi-fi connectivity and any other current gimmick. But the art of analog photography with its imperfections, happy accidents, details, delays and processes has an aura which goes beyond the mightiest of megapixels.
The Film Project is new work using classic photographic techniques shot through the analog lenses of a European group of photographers in and around skateboarding. The exhibition will be travelling to venues in Barcelona, Paris, Berlin and London, supported by Volcom and select pieces will be printed in the finest skateboard magazines in Europe.
HOW IT WORKS?
This last summer eleven photographers around Europe received three film rolls of their choice each. After spending two months shooting with their analog cameras, they sent back the rolls and chose the development process.
The organization developed the photos and together with the photographers selected the 42 best images.
After curating exhibitions around Europe, a selection of this photos will be published in articles on associated media.
