Direct Positive Photo Paper

Direct Positive Photo Paper

New B/W Positive Photo Paper for pinhole and large-format cameras. Very high speed, rich tones, better dynamic range.

We want to reach all the photography artists who are as passionate about classic black-and-white photography as we are. Those who are captivated by the magic of the development process. Those who are ready, just like the alchemists of the past, to experiment with chemicals until they find a recipe that turns their work into gold. Basically we’re looking for like-minded people. Most photo paper manufacturers have closed down, but while there’s still at least one inspired photographer in need of good reversal photo paper left, we will keep trying to get it made! Read more…

The Intrepid 4×5 Camera

The Intrepid 4x5 Camera

The Intrepid 4×5 Camera – An Affordable Large Format Camera

The Intrepid Camera is a high quality and affordable 4×5 field camera, it’s light weight and capable of creating breath taking images.

4×5 is an amazing format. The film comes in sheets that are much larger than your standard 35mm- 13x larger in fact. This lends an incredible amount of clarity and depth in your images. The film would be considered “HDR” in the digital world due to the amount of detail it can capture. 4×5 film is still produced and readily available all over the world, with Ilford, Fuji and Kodak manufacturing some of the most high tech films that have ever existed…

100 More Years of Analog Film

100 More Years of Analog Film

Ferrania has been making both still and motion picture film since 1923 in the northwest Liguria region of Italy. Ferrania made very popular 35mm and 120 consumer films, as well as inexpensive cameras that were as popular in Italy as Kodak was in the US during the same time. But the Ferrania brand was most associated with cinema. Fellini was a big customer. So were De Sica and Antonioni. In fact, the vast majority of classic Italian movies released between 1923 and 1965 were shot on Ferrania stock.

Between 1964 and 1999, Ferrania was owned by The 3M Corporation and sold films under various brand names. After 3M’s exit, Ferrania soldiered onward until finally turning off the machines and locking the doors in 2010.

In 2012 our founders, Nicola and Marco, knocked on the factory door and FILM Ferrania, named in homage to the original 1923 company, was born.

New55 FILM is a new instant 4×5 film

New55 FILM is a new instant 4x5 film

New55 FILM is a new instant 4×5 film that produces a superb negative, and a positive print too.

As a New55 FILM backer you will be making history.  But you will also be constructing the future of Post-Digital professional darkroomless analog photography.  Here, we — a group of artists (from every continent) — will take up the means of production.  Where large-scale industrial capacity has failed to adapt to the major technological and behavioral shifts from the rise of digital photography, a small-scale factory that is modular, scalable, and humane in its flexibility will begin manufacturing an important and necessary photographic material — New55 FILM.  We now have the opportunity and the responsibility to make it happen.

After such amazing and adventurous 2 years art journey I finally decided it’s time to turn my photos into unique thing – a beautiful art book. And I need your help to realise the photo book.

My adventure with photography began at the end of 2010 and in a short time from a hobby developed into a true passion and a professional occupation. I specialize in beauty, fashion, advertising and fine art nudes photography. My eye for capturing authentic human characteristics and expressions is revealed in a unique, painterly style. I’m known for my perfectionism and my photographs are delicate, yet at the same time bright and vivid.

The Polaroid Museum Project

Most museums are founded by a few wealthy donors who believe in an idea and want to make all the decisions. When we set out to design The Polaroid Museum that traditional arrangement didn’t feel true to our brand. We’ve always put cameras in the hands of the people, allowing them to instantly capture and share memories, and so we wanted to crowdsource our founding body, establishing that authentic connection to the people and the social experience. We’ve come to Indiegogo to find our founders.
