Who’s Making Film In 2020?

Lots of folks! Likely, this list is incomplete (there must be others in China and India); even the statement that Fuji and Kodak are the only manufacturers of color film seems to be suspect. Despite and still, what an array, eh?


Lynda Barry’s Lesson Plans

Caveat emptor: not unlike the uneven emulsion on sheet film which made Frederick Sommer exclude open skies from hie compositions in the 1940s, there is a current problem with 120 roll film.

“I’m not writing it down to remember it later, I’m writing it down to remember it now.”


Do you go through as many notebooks (and agendas, and calendars) as we do? Field Notes, from Chicago, is an excellent source (although we have not ever used this particular brand). The current special edition covers were produced at the Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin (which we have yet to visit, although we’ve heard about it from workshop participants). Check out all the links. And decide whether to place an order, post-haste.
