Issue 15 | Summer 2022
It has been fifty years since our cover photographer, David Burnett, made his images of the Vietnam Conflict, but they look as if they could have been made yesterday. Unfortunately. But in addition to David’s well-known photos of war, presidents, and Olympic games, we are happy to present a few that are less well-known and show his curious eye and sense of humor.
Of course, we have other wonderful portfolios including the behind-the-scenes photos of Susan Bridges, wife of Jeff Bridges, published for the first time. The film in question was Heaven’s Gate, set in the 1800s. Susan’s images caught the wonderful mix of authentic sets and costumes interspersed with cameras and crew putting them on film. Other corners of the world bring us work from Steve Cham (Hong Kong), Damian Hovhannisyan (Armenia), Augusto de Luca (Italy) and Daria Troitskaia (Russia/Italy).
Our own Editor-in-Chief Marwan El Mozayen took two of the new color films out for a test, ADOX’s Color Mission and Kodak’s Gold 120, and was surprised by some of the results. And if you are looking for even more inspiration to get out and shoot, we have it in the form of an article by Andrew Sanderson on how play can fuel creativity, and even a detailed explanation of how easy it is to DIY redscale photography.
Several articles have a connection to 16mm filmmaking, including our Virtual Connections guest, Brae Hunziker, a report about the 16mm workshop co-sponsored by SilvergrainAcademy and Kodak Motion Picture, and book reviews.
We hope you will all enjoy traveling through the wide world of analog with us in Issue 15!
