Magazine Publication

vest_pocket_kodak-8121

Four of my platinum/palladium prints of the Somme have been published in the April issue of Black + White Photography magazine.

The images were made with a vintage Vest Pocket Kodak loaded with Efke R100 film during a visit to the Somme, Arras and Ypres in 2015.

Developed eighteen rolls of film on my return; more of the images can be seen on my website at: The Great War

    • Thanks Paula. Yes, I wish we all could learn to live in peace. Two weeks visiting the Somme, Arras and Ypres really made me stop and think about war and the continuing conflict in the world.

  1. Well done for getting published – and glad people still want to see old film black and white nowadays. I keep meaning to shoot a roll of black and white I have in my drawer before it goes off!

    • Thank you, Carol. Yes, it’s great there’s still a lot of interest in film photography. I hope you get to shoot the roll of black and white you have, look forward to seeing the results.

  2. This is great Simon, congratulations. You’ve taken something that needs to be remembered for all time ahead…and done so. Beautiful work, well deserved.

    • Thank you, Randall. I’ve wanted to visit the Western Front for a long time and plan to return to the Somme again. Will continue to make platinum/palladium prints from the Kodak photos, hope to exhibit them sometime.
