Looking forward

I love portraits taken with film cameras. I believe it is more difficult to take a good portrait with a film camera, you have to pay attention more carefully to the light, to the distance and everything else. But film portraits are beautiful: the grain, the colors, the unexpected “faults” that the camera leaves on the photo and the fact that you can’t know for sure how the picture will come out.

There is a cathegory of film portraits that I particularly like taking and I enjoy seeing: “back portraits”. They have a feeling of melancholy, mistery, but also familiarity, it is so much more easire to identify with the photo. It’s like looking forward, to what is ahead…I think these kind of portraits are hopeful ones.

Below are some beautiful  “back potraits” taken by some really talented people, whose work I admire.
