Me by Kevin

I'm feeling a bit lazy and uninspired after coming back from work so this post is just a quickie. My boyfriend sent over some pictures that he has taken of me recently with his film cameras, and so I decided to show you one of them today. I think this one is more recent, taken just a couple of weeks ago after my finance final. Isn't it so much more interesting than my recent blank wall backdrops? I'd love to post his photos all the time but they either take a while to process or I'm making awkward faces. There is no second chance with film, I'm afraid.



Kevin has recently sparked the interest of a local gallery owner and might get to display a couple of his photographs. He has also entered a photography contest for a $10,000 grant from Magnum and the semi-finalists will be announced sometime within the next week. Good luck Kevin love!

I just finished looking at his Flickr account. His technique is definitely Magnum material, I love the way he successfully focusses on compositions and the smallest details. Cool documentation!

Ah this is beautiful! film photography is magic, I'd love to try more if only I had the patience to wait for the film to develop... Goodluck Kevin!

(I got the Reiss jacket from a sample sale (more like a warehouse sale with only size 14s everywhere..) for quite cheap, I think you need to wait for something like that to come along hehe)
