An exhibition at Studio 19 showcasing the old craft of film photography is opening in Wollongong, giving a rustic look at the everyday life of Illawarra artists.
If you had to take a photo now, would you most likely use your phone or your digital camera?
Whatever you’re using, it’s unlikely to be a traditional film camera.
But that’s what Wollongong artist Nina Kourea asked people to do for her latest exhibition.
Photographers were allowed one roll of 24 exposures film, shot over the course of one day.
The results are a mix of the everyday and the artistic, but they all share the character of having been created using the old photographic art form.
“It’s not perfect and that’s what I love about it,” Nina says.
“The amount of perfection in digital photography these days drives me mad, but I just love the raw image, and that’s what I love about this show – it’s raw.”
The ’24’ exhibition runs from 19th March to 5th April at Studio 19 in Wollongong in the Crown Street Mall.
