Berlin, Germany

The Importance of Generosity

“My way of processing a new city is through street photography. That was my plan when I landed in Berlin. Yet, Berliners are very protective of their privacy and mostly said no to being snapped on the street.

What could have been a dealbreaker for me and my time in Berlin instead pushed me inside the studio, and into the company of fellow photographers.

Photography is a solitary profession and loneliness can creep in. These days we have the opportunity to build community online, but nothing beats being in a room together with a fellow photographer, geeking out over cameras and photo books, learning from each other and seeing how our approaches differ when shooting the same subject.

This was my time with Tobias Schult (@Tobias_schult_photography) in a nutshell. He welcomed me into his studio where over the course of two months we’d get together to shoot, to experiment with new formats, to help edit @graysonlauffenburger’s upcoming photo book. Tobi's warm welcome inspired me, a traveling nomad, to think about having my own studio in the future.

I also found community at @SafelightBerlin where @AustinFassino took the time to teach me how to use a large format camera. I thought my medium format camera was a beast to walk around with, but you really haven’t seen street photography until you watch Austin walk the streets with an 8x10 camera.

Turns out, the only thing you need to soften up Berliners on the street is a gigantic old camera. It also turns out that the best way to soften up yourself and get better at your craft is to be forced to take a hiatus from street photography and hang out inside at the studio with generous friends.”

This is the fifth in an ongoing photo series from @wesley. Wesley Verhoeve is a nomadic photographer, the co-creator of @theobservers, and a curator at @icp. Up next is Amsterdam.

Faculty Dept., Vol 2 — Cereal Magazine

“Since it first came out, I’ve been following the work of @cerealmag closely. With an understated feel, I connected with the way they present their stories effortlessly and real. A few years ago, I finally met Rosa and Rich, editor and creative director of the magazine. From the start, it felt as though I’ve known them my entire life. Throughout our friendship, I’ve been so inspired by the lifestyle they lead and how they continue to push their limits. @rvstapleton’s body of photography work has developed richly and @rosaliapark launched her own @francisgallery this year. I’m lucky to know them and am beyond honoured to call them friends. Here, a photo set from my visit with them at their home in Bath, UK.”

Justin Chung (@justinchung) is a lifestyle and portrait photographer, and the founder of @facultydept. Earlier this year, he joined us on  #TheKodakery for Episode 128 to discuss this project at length.

These images are a preview of Faculty Department, Vol 2 — shot completely on Kodak film and printed using Kodak Print Technology. The book is now available for preorder on facultydept.com

Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania

“When we first began @rescuedfilm, we were finding and buying rolls of film for a few bucks. The film we rescued these images from was the first time we took the risk of investing nearly $1,000 for what ended up being 31 rolls of film. Fortunately our investment wasn't in vain. We were able to rescue images from the majority of the rolls. The images depict US soldiers at Fort Indiantown GAP in Pennsylvania. Traveling over the ocean on a large transport vessel where they took part in religious ceremonies on the deck. As well as in France in locations such as Le Havre Harbor, Normandy, and the Lucky Strike ‘Cigarette Camp.’”

Levi Bettwieser is the founder of @rescuedfilm — which is an ongoing archive of forgotten film images that were developed and rescued. Listen to our full conversation with Levi about how he started @rescuedfilm on #TheKodakery podcast — kodak.com/go/kodakery (link in bio)

East Chicago, Indiana

“These images are just a handful of the over 6,000 images we've rescued from one East Chicago, Indiana photographer in the 1950s named Paul (@rescuedpaul). Paul could afford to buy film, but couldn't afford to process it. So after finishing a roll, he wrote a note explaining the context of the images, wrapped up the note and roll in layers of tin foil and tape, and placed it in a cigar box with several other rolls packaged the same way. He then bundled the cigar box in layers of tin foil and tape. He did this knowing that it would probably be a long time before he could process them, and this was his way of ensuring they didn't degrade as quickly. Unfortunately Paul passed away before he could process any of the film, and our project acquired it about 4 year ago.”

The Rescued Film Project began in 2013 when Levi Bettwieser started finding undeveloped rolls of film in cameras he would pick up in thrift stores. It has since expanded to accept donations. Levi joins us on our most recent episode of #TheKodakery podcast to talk about why these everyday, forgotten photographs are worth rescuing.

These select photographs were found in a Kodak Brownie Six-20 and hand processed by @rescuedfilm.

“For most of the rolls we rescue, we never know anything about them including what they were shot on.  So whenever we rescue a roll from a camera, we make sure to take a picture of the roll with the camera before processing.  The images we rescued from this roll are blurry because of the slow shutter speed of the camera.  Guessing based on the content of the images, the pictures were taken by a young person who was more interested in having fun with his/her friends than holding the camera completely steady. Today blurry images such as this would probably be tossed. But "flaws" like this tell a much more interesting story that often gets lost today when we can curate how we want to display our lives to others.”
