A Treasure Chest

Photography / Travels

One of the most delightful feelings in the world is picking up photos from a roll of film you’d forgotten, and realizing it’s a lot older than you thought. Somehow, 36 pictures were enough for Malaysia, Mallorca, Vietnam and Cambodia. A few of these have instantly become some of my all-time favourites, and knowing my love for the mysterious and light play, it’s pretty obvious which ones I’m talking about.


I like blurry pictures. I like excessive contrast, not-quite-right exposure, weird angles. Digital cameras make it so easy to get the perfect picture nowadays I feel like I have to go the extra mile to get the odd picture, the one that makes you think, that evokes memories and isn’t “just perfect for a Facebook cover photo”.

What can I say? I’m a fan of imperfection. It’s another level of beauty, I suppose.

  1. Well, nowadays it is difficult to find old films lying around forgotten. Unfortunately! I’d love to find them every now and then. Which reminds me … need to get my old manual camera fixed with a new film. Probably best to do before the weekend inside Battersea Power Station.
