How to remember your life – A poem

Music holds more memories than we remember

Film vs Digital

Something interesting I’ve found since I started shooting film is that I value the photos I take on film considerably more than those I take with my digital camera. I’ve boiled this down to the fact that I am forced to think about film photos a lot more, since firstly, there are fewer of them,…

Sometimes it can be like a waft of familiar perfume that makes your heart skip a beat. Or it’s like you travelled back in time and you’re no longer standing there but surrounded by your past unfolding in front of you. As if your soul escapes your body for a moment and the only thing possible for you to do is stand there and feel it.
