Revisiting South Africa

I was recently back in South Africa and used my dad’s old Pentax Super-A Film camera to capture what my digital camera and (shamelessly) my Iphone used to photograph. The sensation of pushing the lever to wind the film and feeling every analogical part inside work together was a total body experience. Th anticipation of waiting to develop the film (and bringing it thousands of kilometers back to Berlin) was beyond nail biting, partially because I have not used an analog camera in years, but mostly due to the fact that it would be a surprise. Something that is quite rare to come by these days.
