Travel Photographs: Instant Malaysia

I spent nearly two weeks on vacation in Malaysia at the beginning of March. It was fantastic and well deserved after a busy start to the start of the year. I didn’t even pick up my digital camera for the duration of the trip, from Kuala Lumpur to Penang and Langkawi and back again. I carried around a few film cameras and a new LC-A with an instant film back, which is what all of these pictures were taken with. I wanted to take looser images. I wanted to play around with double and triple exposures and with shooting from the hip. I wanted to shoot film but I still wanted immediate gratification. So here are some photographs. It was fun. Now if only Hanoi would warm up.

Malaysia on Film

I’ve been thinking a lot about my photography these past few weeks, about where it is and where it should be. Or maybe where it could be or would be. It doesn’t really matter. It’s in this one place, and I eventually want it to be somewhere else. I just don’t know where that is yet. So I’m starting from scratch. Shooting film and trying not to think too much about it. Hopefully I’ll move past the cliches and find something worth pursuing. Something I can incorporate into my work, personally and professionally. These plateaus are important, but so is moving past them. These photographs are all from the last two weeks in Malaysia. I’ll post more as more film is developed.
