So – Apparently film is dead?

Brandon Donnelly by Abi Smith PhotographyMy name is Brandon Donnelly and I have been studying photography for little over a year now.

My introduction to photography was rather bizarre. After being with my partner for a short time, I was invited to her sister’s wedding. Feeling rather uncomfortable as a new member of the family, I took my sisters Canon Rebel DSLR to keep me company. My logic was that if I found myself plummeting into an inescapable awkward scenario, I could wander off with my camera capturing the special day. Continue reading “So – Apparently film is dead?”

Disconnect – Krisztian Bedynski


Kristian Bedynski profile picture

I started taking pictures on the streets of Budapest around 2008. I switched to film shortly after, as that’s what suits me best.

My main goal with my photography is to document the world that I experience, broaden my vision and establish some kind of balance with photographs taken in overlooked, “insignificant”, undocumented places. Let this be a supermarket, a not so pretty underpass with or without people in Eastern Europe or anything else that inspires me.

I believe in self-learning, and I’m always up for something new to explore.

I adhere to a strict code of conduct. I don’t believe in photoshop, don’t do much if any post processing and it has to be an exceptional day for me to crop an image.

I use Ilford’s Delta 400 for most of my work and use XP2 Super when I need my results fast.

I was born in 1988, which meant that I got a first class ticket to experience the world converting from analogue to digital during my childhood. We would listen to walkmans and rewind tapes with pencils while also figuring out how to use the computer to play our favorite games. Continue reading “Disconnect – Krisztian Bedynski”
