Today, we’re featuring beautiful fine art 35mm film images from photographer Nick Prideaux. Nick’s ability to use light and shadow evokes a sense of intimacy and connection in his work. Here are a few words from Nick about his film photography process:
I am an Australian documentary-style photographer based in Bangkok. I take photos on 35mm film – I shoot stories from my life told in a diaristic manner. My approach is guided by my intuition, rather than preconception. The camera gives me a way of looking at the every day in a more conscious light and a way of surfacing thoughts and feelings that are otherwise difficult to access and express.
My photography is about subtraction. I approach it with a simple process – focusing on the smaller details, the beauty of the little things. I love light and colour.
Analog cameras and films used: Contax T2 (Find at KEH Camera or on eBay), Konica Hexar AF (Find on eBay) | Agfa Vista 200 (Find on Amazon)

Fantastic images and deep colors, that Agfa Vista is a beast! I love how Nick Prideaux captures emotion (and that’s where the camera and film used lose their importance).
