This shooting took place quite early in the morning when the air is still fresh and the sun gives you hard shadows. We were both quite relaxed and the model is not a friend of many words so it was just a really cool work.
In the beginning of 2019 I bought a Leica R7 at the Leica store in Porto. I believe it was the Portuguese vibes that made me believe I’m chilled enough to work analog.
Two days later I found a workshop about analog development in Lisbon. When I arrived, the film didn’t come out properly and was spoilt … So I had 20 minutes to shoot one roll to participate in the workshop. 20 minutes for 36 photos. These are the results.
I still do analog photography and I upgraded to medium format, using a Mamiya 645.
I had the chance to participate at a workshop with Bruce Gilden in London back in 2019. All the shots have been taken in the London Eastend and in Hackney Wick. I don’t like candid shots so I stopped and asked the people if it was ok if I take a picture of them.
I believe it was in 2018 when my wonderful wife managed to visit a book signing with David and got my collection signed!
