Shentov here. We went on tour and I wanted to share a story from it. I totally love the idea of a tour report—like my previous one—and I always like to read it in a zine or over the web. However, this time I wanted to do something else.
The following pictures are all shot on 35 mm in the course of a week while Feedbacker, Calf and Demikhov did a short tour in Greece and Bulgaria. I have this quirk for shooting analog using the crappiest cameras available. I always try to sneak my LC-A at shows and shoot some messy double exposures when I get the chance. I am no real photographer, though. I couldn’t care less about depth of focus or good composition. I know nothing about this, and it’s part of the fun, I guess.
Probably a week before this tour, I somehow managed to buy a second hand Olympus Mju II locally for the pricey sum of €8. Now, I got really lucky, because nowadays these cameras command big bucks on the second hand market, and I can almost see why. They are small, full auto focus, relatively fast and take good old 35 mm film. Besides the hipster hype, I’m all good with it. Is it the perfect camera to take on tour? Probably not, since you already got all the megapixels right in your pocket with any smartphone. Is it fun to have on tour? Most definitely.
And, in this case, it was my tool to capture the spirit of this journey.
