I Photographed Nostalgic London In Film
I worked in London for just under 3 years, catching the 7:19 from Rayleigh, Essex – I joined the commuters heading into the city.
The first year I was exhausted, I had completed a photography degree, and was now working in Marketing – and, after a year, I realised I had barely picked up my camera.
So I got some 35mm from the pound shop, put it in one of the point & shoots I had picked up in a Charity Shop (I have far too many!) – and here was born my ‘Life on Film’ project.
For 2 years I worked in Shoreditch, and for my final 9 months I worked in Southwark – and I opted to walk in every morning, which gave plenty of opportunities to capture the city.
The project is still continuing, though I have a back log of films that need developing & scanning – but here are some of the highlights of London, I just love how London looks on analogue film – almost nostalgic, like something from a different time.
