On this episode, we start with a of catching up. Have we been shooting? Not much. But we’ve got a couple of things on our mind.
We then turn to the answering machine messages. The question this time around was:
How would you feel about developing someone else’s work?
Remember Brandy (@film_diary_of_a_redhead on IG)? She’s half of the Film Photo Geeks podcast, and was one of our first guests. Sh’s back to talk about what it was like working in a string of photolabs.
She also stuck around to talk about the movie One Hour Photo…
It’s Movie Night!
We’ve been wanting to do One Hour Photo for a long time now. The movie is going on 20 years old. How has it aged? Do we still think of photography in the same way? What’s taken the place of photolabs and photo albums? And isn’t Robin Williams fucking brilliant in this?
We mentioned the “work print” a couple of times. This can be found here (for now).
“And if these pictures have anything important to say to future generations, it’s this: I was here. I existed. I was young, I was happy, and someone cared enough about me in this world to take my picture.”
We’ve got one zine to review this week. It’s Drunken Hong Kong by Robert Burton. It’s a 48 page, color/B&W, perfect bound beauty of a zine.
“Enjoy a vision of Hong Kong just one year ago: before the protests over the extradition bill, before the pandemic, before the end of ‘one country, two systems’ that’s threatening to happen right now–29 years ahead of schedule.”
It is, in a word, frenetic. But we loved it and you should too.
Get it here.
We have a zine of our own coming out shortly. Stay tuned…
