B&W Film - My First Love

The Hasselblad Xpan camera is intentional 'landscape' formatted. However, it's more a hassle (pun intended) than a pleasure to work with - it can be a bit of a nuisance; the viewfinder is just that, an 'unnatural' one in that it only points toward where you are aiming - however, your final handprint ends up rewarding because now you 'see' just what you envisaged when framing-up that particular photograph. One struggles to casually 'take' a photograph; it needs forethought before you trigger the Xpan. This is possibly why I love using this camera...
(My concept & creative direction)

NB: Digital Scans from selected film negatives were faithfully captured by John Rivett, "MasterPrint–Digital" Cape Town. South Africa.
