"The woods are a safe haven where I can shoot, comfortable in the knowledge I won’t be disturbed. That solitude is essential to my process, for me photography is not a spectator sport. I couldn’t cope stuck on a cliff top with a dozen other photographers, all photographing the same sunset."

— Chris Younger (via • STAY ROUTED •)

Hello, 

My name is Kat Ward. I’m a self taught photographer based in the UK. I fell in love with film a few years ago and have been shooting roll after roll ever since. 

My cameras help me to explore the world, notice small details and interpret my surroundings. When I shoot, I always learn something new. Film is also tactile and I like that I can physically touch and manipulate it.

In this series, I have combined my love of abandoned, ‘makeshift’ places and the dream-like or surreal. To achieve this effect, I soaked some 35mm negatives in a solution made from warm water, food dye and salt.

—Kat Ward

Wow I’d forgotten I’d submitted this to Cool Girls Shoot Film a year or so ago!

Today I bought The Do-It-Yourself Guide to Fighting the Big Motherfuckin’ SAD by Adam Gnade. It’s really cheap; only $4 for the digital download.
I especially love this quote: “There are wonderful things disappearing right now. Go find them before they’re gone.”
Buy it (I highly recommend it) and enjoy :)

Found 110 film developed after I discovered it in an old camera…

These may have been shot by a relative of mine (no one can remember) but the forest pictured is very near my parent’s house. Either that or the camera was picked up in a second hand shop with the roll inside and it’s just a strange coincidence!

Spent today working on my new zine. Feels good to be able to get stuck into it without any interruptions. (Scribus is a total godsend.) Should be up for sale in the next couple of weeks!

So You Want to Be a Writer? by Charles Bukowski (read by Tom O’Bedlam)

I think this is pretty great. Whatever it is you do, do it for the right reasons.

Today I received some gifts including Ruth McMillan’s beautiful mini zine (go check her work out, it’s rad!) and freshly picked blackberries, yum.

image “This picture “my future self” taken with my Yashica T5 in 2014.
I was riding around in graz on my bike, where I noticed a strange person, a photographer about 70 years or older…
He was changing the batteries of his little digital point and shot camera… I’ve watched him about 20 min…

This is beautiful.
