The Film Experiment: ‘The War You Don’t See’
So I have finally found some time to update the website with some new content. And I have decided to post up some
experiences I have had using various film cameras over the last year or so.
Today’s series involved taking a Mamiya 7- Medium Format film camera and walking around the Victorian suburb of Footscray.
After walking for a few hours, I discovered what I was going to show in my series of photos. And my first photo – showing the remnants of a poster for John Pilger’s documentary: ‘The War You Don’t See’ – gave me my title and goal.
As with all series’ I wont explain into detail, except this: The series explores the corners of Footscray and discovers what is hidden just off from the footpaths or major roads in the suburb, by looking a bit deeper reveals a darker history to the suburb.
These photos were all taken with medium format 400 ISO film, and developed, edited and printed in a dark room by myself. The photo’s shown have been scanned in for digital use (some quality has been lost in the process)
Thank you for reading.
