At the start of 2018 I moved to the Basque Country of Spain, in a city named Bilbao. The only photography gear I brought with me was my iPhone, my Leica M6 (with a 35mm f/2), and roughly 100 rolls of film. This marked the start of my transition away from using a digital SLR, and towards only shooting film for my personal/professional work.
I don't plan on developing the rolls I am shooting until I return home to the states (in June or so, I don't actually have a plane ticket home yet...). My reasons for doing this are:
To disconnect from the modern mentality of instant gratification that has been so deeply ingrained into society. To personally place value in the photos taken, by purposing them for something of greater value than Instagram. To allow myself to retain an objective view of my photos in the selection process.
I went into this journey thinking that the only important photos I'd take would be on film, but at this point I have come to realize the power of my iPhone. This little thing has continued to go over and above my needs for a phone and even for a digital camera. Below, I will be showcasing the images that I have been able to capture and edit only with my iPhone.
A majority of the images are from Spain, but there are also shots from the following places aswell:
Prague, Czech Republic
London, United Kingdom
UPDATE: January 18, 2019
I have since developed the film from shooting abroad, and over the course of the past 6 months I have been comprising a body of work into a book.
