Girl by Ben Robson
Ben Robson's picture


The very first shot on a 40-odd-year-old Mamiya C330 TLR, a test shot that came out rather better than I had ever imagined!

This was also experimental in that I developed the 120 film at home, in the living room, using instant coffee and washing soda. The end result means I won't be using conventional developer again!

I can see too why the Victorians loved non-smiling photographs. As a direct junta position to today's saturation of smiling instas, I think this unsmiling (though very happy!) little girl draws attention to her eyes and, perhaps, something of her inner thoughts.
