Since I was a young girl, I have been obsessed with cameras and photography, but as I grew up and cameras became more tech based and available, my passion for film based photography developed a life of its own. I took my first dark room course in 2012 and also have a somewhat unhealthy fixation with disposable cameras. Though they resemble toys, they capture raw moments, unfiltered by the subject, unedited by me, and a pure look into a single second of life as it was.
Film photography, especially disposable cameras, evoke human memory so clearly: the things we want to remember are sometimes lost or blown out, and these small fractions of a moment that we remember clearly become so precious. We subconsciously warp and change our memories in the same ways that a roll of film can warp, change, and distort what is captured.
