The girl behind the camera

I love photographing. I hate being photographed. Fully dressed or half naked, this is my trademark face in front of a camera. It took this shoot to realize it, so this is what I'm offering.

I love photographing. I hate being photographed.

I bought my first camera with my own money
when I was fifteen. It was a manual Pentax
film camera. Already ten years old when I
picked it up, it had some shots on it. The light
meter is a little off, but I still use it seventeen
years later. There’s something wonderfully
tangible and surprising about a film camera.
I love that when I hear the shutter fire it’s
authentic, and not a digitally created sound
byte. I haven’t had access to a dark room since
college, but waiting for prints to come back
from the lab is like being five on Christmas Eve.
For me, film has preserved that sense of magic
and wonder.
