Some select photos from this winter. I believe that these were all shot on my Olympus Stylus Epic. As usual, I used Illford Hp5+ pushed 2 stops, developed and scanned by hand.
A quick word about working on the first video for Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers’ Better Oblivion Community Center. Director Michelle Zauner came to me with an expansive treatment that we developed into a color saturated visual, pulling references from Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut and Cary Joji Fukunaga’s Maniac. Translating that on set in LA with a crew of (mostly) new faces was a fun challenge. On a personal note, i’d been a fan of Conor’s since first hearing his album Fevers and Mirrors in 2002, so obviously I was excited to be on set with him.

A few shots I managed to pop off on a trip to Mexico in December. We spent a few days traveling around the Yucatan Peninsula, and most of these shots (the four daytime ones) are from Tulum.
All on Illford Hp5+ pushed 2 stops, developed and scanned by myself. Shot with my Olympus OM-2n and 28mm f/2.8.
More from this fall. All on Illford Hp5+ pushed 2 stops, developed and scanned by myself.
The first eight images are from my Olympus Stylus Epic Zoom 80, which has some really interesting distortion and flaring. I was happily surprised by at the optical quality it delivers, considering that it’s a cheapo point-and-shoot. This was also my first roll of dx hacked film (the only way to get my preferred push-process on a point-and-shoot) and i can happily say it worked seamlessly.
The bottom row of images is from Thanksgiving at my parent’s house in NJ, shot on my Olympus OM-2n and 28mm f/2.8.
A series of images shot over the course of this fall. All on Illford Hp5+ pushed 2 stops, developed and scanned by myself. Final image (of me) shot by Phil Solokoff.
A series of images shot over the course of this summer. Mostly hand-developed and scanned by myself, with the exception of the images shot on P3200.
