ACROSS THE USA ON FILM 2017

I’ll never grow tired of travelling in the USA. The place is pure magic.

I still remember the first time I went to New York City. And while you can never have your first time back, it doesn’t really matter with a city like this. I fall under a different spell each time I’m there. The city is like no other. I’m so glad I got to shoot it on film this time. I see places differently when I’m not doing it digitally. It’s hard to explain if you’ve never shot with film.

Chicago is another city we’ve grown to love. It’s filled with the best kind of people. Kesh turned 30 there on this trip and we had a night we’ll never forget. Amanda Jane Jones watched our boys at a hotel in the city while we headed out to see Hamilton – still the best musical we’ve ever seen.

And as for Utah, I don’t even have the words for this place. I could explore just this state alone and never grow tired of it’s beauty. Lots more to come for Utah. It will get it’s own post.

These were all shot on my Contax G2 and I asked the lab to scan these on the darker side. With my own photos, I kind of shy away from the perfect, fine art look and honestly prefer the darker, muddier and less perfect tones.
