where do you come from & what do you do for a living?
Born and raised in Melbourne, and I’m a chef full time.
How old are you?
How did you become inspired to shoot on film?
I found my mum’s Pentax K1000 and I’d always wanted to experiment with film after shooting digital for so long. I found some old film that had been in the fridge for about 10 years so I thought it was the perfect time to play around.
What format do you shoot? 35mm, Polaroid, 8 x 10 etc
I love shooting 35mm, but slowly starting to get into 120mm.
Why do you like this format?
I really like 35mm format on a simple SLR because it’s basic, pure and raw. It’s down to you, your camera and the film you’re using. For the most part, it’s easier for me to shoot film rather than digital just because you’ve got less things to adjust and play around with. I really enjoy having a roll of film for however long it may be, not knowing how your photos will come out, and then seeing them after they’re processed, if you’ve nailed that shot you really wanted to, it’s a rad feeling.
Where do you see the future of analogue photography?
I feel that film, like all analogue formats, will have some form in the future. People like tangible products and things, whether it be vinyl, cd’s film or any other form of art. Even though it may not be the majority of people that use analogue photography, the minority isn’t small, and it will stay around for a long time.
Where can we find out more about your work?
I wouldn’t call it work, it’s purely a hobby for me, but the best place is to find it on my Instagram account (@andrewkclark). There is a mix of film and digital however.
