Travelling With Film III

Can you give an important piece of travel advice for film photographers like yourself? This is one of the questions we ask our featured analogue-loving adventurers for the Wanderlust series to know about the tips, rules, or hard lessons learned that they keep in mind when wandering about with their film cameras. Every now and…

Sven Van Driessche (Havana, Cuba)

To piece together a collection of nostalgic photos of Havana, Sven Van Driessche traveled from Belgium to Cuba’s historic capital city in 2014 and 2015 with his Polaroid cameras. Having documented the city in slide film during his first visit in 2004, our featured analogue traveler wanted to work with a different medium to capture…

Laurence Donoghue (Kiruna, Sweden)

When your destination seems the unlikeliest place to give you a warm welcome or relaxingly pleasant stay, what makes it beautiful and memorable nevertheless? I couldn’t help but think of this when I learned of the travel story of our featured analogue-loving traveler for this week. After living in the Swedish capital of Stockholm for…

Ran Benazra, Swedish Lapland

I strongly believe that Jerusalem-based Ran Benazra is a photographer that many of us can relate with. Describing himself as a creative whose work is “driven by exploration,” the very photos he shared embody the sense of adventure that we traveling film photographers find ourselves wanting to satiate with a trip every so often. Heeding…

Kahren Sabater, New York City

“To see it in a different way,” Canada-based photographer Kahren Sabater simply answered when we asked her why she decided to capture New York City in double exposures. Perhaps, this is something we’ve all wanted to experiment with — for those who haven’t yet — for some travel photos, precisely for the same reason as…

Wanderlust Special: Rob Hauer

Perhaps, we don’t really give it much thought, but if we look closely at the photographs we find nostalgic, there will always be a bunch that takes us back to the places we’ve been. Apart from painting a sense of place, these photographs also remind us that travel is often less about the place, but…

Martin Ruckert, India & Nepal

While our featured analogue-loving wanderer finds inspiration in Leipzig, the German city where he’s currently residing, a quick browse at his impressive pool of travel photos is enough to tell us that he was also immensely inspired by his thorough trip around India and Nepal. For 11 months, 22-year-old Martin Ruckert immersed himself in the…

Nick Stentzel, Brazil

“I never felt the motivation to base an entire photography project there until I heard an album by the Brazilian musician Jorge Ben — A Tábua de Esmeralda,” said American photographer Nick Stentzel when asked about his choice to travel and work around Northeastern Brazil. This week’s featured film-snapping traveler has been roaming the inner…

Leire Galarza, Canary Islands

Ever been so charmed by a place that living there seemed like a better option than constantly going back? Like one of our previously featured film photographers, Spanish-born Leire Galarza fell in love with Canary Islands soon after her first visits and eventually decided to live in the Spanish archipelago for a year instead of…
