Social media often gets a bad rap as a necessary evil, but thanks – specifically to Twitter – I have discovered a global film photography community I couldn’t have engaged with otherwise. Not sure how I stumbled upon this group of film fanatics, the Film Shooters Collective, but between Tumblr and FB we came together to share our love for analogue photography. Unlike most groups though (and thanks really to our fearless leader Cameron) we decided to take our passion one step further and put together a book of our work. A subject was vetted, deadlines were set and then it was up to us to take the theme of NSEW (north south east west) and determine what that looked like from our corner of the world. For many of us it was a challenge to not only put together a body of work, but also an artist statement. What was produced was work from 30 photographers, from New York to Seattle and Kuwait to Singapore. I’m honored and excited to have participated in this project and look forward to seeing the actual book soon.
