At the Amon Carter museum, I picked up a book in the gift shop and instantly fell in love. Killgore Rangettes by O. Rufus Lovett. Photographed on the film in the 90’s, square format.

Grain is Good. Taylor and Tommy’s wedding at 7 degrees in Laguna Beach. Photographed with the Hasselblad and Cinestill 120 medium format film.

Been watching the Rockford Files lately, and Love the opening credits, gritty film stills.

In this case your images might look like if they were […]
