Episode 35 – Reciprocity Failure And The Lives It’s Destroyed

On this episode we’ll be calling up Or Sachs (@or_sachs on IG) all the way the hell over there in Israel! We’ll also be wading through the slow murky depths of reciprocity failure – what is it, why should you care, and do we? Apart from that we’ve got the answering machine, a letter from someone who doesn’t listen to our show, and a new zine!

Or Sachs

Or Sachs, a film photographer and a photography teacher.  We gushed about his zine, “Summer Kingdom” a few episodes ago and just had to get him on. He came back to film photography about four years ago and is doing some amazing large format work. 

In this interview, we talk about the film community in Israel as well as the fascinating community of agricultural workers he’s photographed.

Here are a few of his photos:

And this is his zine, Summer Kingdom:

Reciprocity Failure

Let us try to explain this phenomenon to you.

During the piece, we referenced two of Eric’s photos, one of which he didn’t account for reciprocity failure.

New Zine!

Eric’s got a new zine out, and Vania takes a look at it.
