“The Widelux panoramic ratio is like how your eye sees, with peripheral vision. And the swing lens! Between the time when the slit starts moving and when it’s done, the world has changed. I really dig film photography — it’s like opening Christmas packages and discovering what life has given you! So much has been lost in the name of progress. The tragedy would be to lose film.”

Jeff occasionally writes a blog and points to topics worth mulling over on his website, He is presently starring in a TV series, The Old Man, which can be streamed on FX on Hulu / Disney +.
