    I love how ‘real’ each photo is. You can tell they’re not posed, and so they capture the evening so well! I agree – the timeless quality is incredible!

    Great post Alexander, thanks for explaining so clearly and eloquently the attractions of using analogue film over digital. Taking the time to create more mindful and meaningful images perhaps gives them more value and they are more likely to be revisited and enjoyed in the future than a less carefully curated collection of photos taken on a phone and stored somewhere in the cloud.

    Really fascinating to listen to your process, Alexander, the use of black and white creates such a different sense of time, compared to looking at a colour image. I love the range of tones you’ve created especially those rich darks, in some pictures, the atmosphere is almost tangible. Your photos have a great documentary element, the the way you’ve cropped the figures and shown us ordinary objects conveys a real sense of immediacy. You must have been watching like a hawk to spot potential compositions and making split second creative decisions to have captured these fleeting moments with such beauty.

    These photos show a real maturity of approach and technique and there’s an interesting sense of activity and movement in each -great work!
