Des pellicules pour un grand voyage argentique

My name is Sarah, I just turned 25 and I currently live in Lyon. I write "currently" because I have always loved to wander, be it for travels with my family, for my studies or my work. You're likely to come across me with a suitcase or a backpack. 

 

I just quit my Parisian job in a start-up to dive entirely into what I like the most: Film Photography. 

 

You know, these old cameras sleeping in the attic of your grand-parents. With the heyday of digital photography, this historic art has faded over the years. But for me nothing replaces the magic and the beauty of silver photographic print. Colors, grain, black & white - everything is more intense and deeper. 

 

 

After six months of theorical and practical classes in the laboratory, I decided to take my camera and my backpack and devote time to my passion. So I'm flying March 15th to India, Sri Lanka and finally Japan. The project is to collect numerous portraits and realize a photo essay dedicated to the people met on the way. A photographic journey that will last 70 days. 

 

 

But film photography has a cost, much more consequent than digital which allows you to take thousands of images. This technique requires to be equipped with films, to develop them in the laboratory and then to scan them on a computer. It's simple: to get thirty photos, you have to pay around 20€.

 

This project is therefore expensive, that is why I need a boost in the hope of not being limited during this great journey. 

 

Thanks to the paper format of film photography, all the people supporting this project will receive one (or more) printed photography, testimony of a moment of this adventure. 

 

A bit as if you accompanied me on this journey!
