Waters Edge: Owen Patrick

Owen Patrick, a photographer from London, recently sent us over a collection of images shot on a single pack of Impossible Project PX680 Color Protection film. I love this set of images! I think they also show just how far the Impossible films have come in such a short period of time. Once you learn “your camera”, the film is starting to produce consistent  results shot after shot. The colors look amazing and the emulsion is starting to spread more evenly. Cant wait to see what the future holds for Impossible!

From Owen:

Here’s a little about the shoot:

We arranged to meet in the financial area of London at the weekend, when the whole place is deserted.  We’d timed it so that the Thames was at low tide and we could get down and explore the water’s edge.  We were focused on gestures and narrative images.

Often I’ll take 2 or 3 cameras to a photoshoot, always a medium format film camera and at least one polaroid camera.  With my film cameras I can usually visualize exactly what the image will look like since I develop the film myself and can control the entire progress.  With polaroid and instant film I love how there’s always something unexpected in the image, the way the colours are rendered, how the image develops, and how it engages and excites everyone I’m working with.
Thanks again Owen for sending these over!
