the minox has been out of commission for awhile now, much to my dismay. the boy’s canon ae-1 is great, but it’s not a tiny camera that fits in every pocket. so i took it to the doctor and the diagnose was… a spent battery. really?! i was very sceptic when i put a roll back into it a few weeks ago while in the north, going around shooting random things in the in-law’s farm.

it seems to work though! sadly, the only roll i had at hand was an 800 iso, so there’s grain like pixels in these photos. i don’t mind though — i’m just glad to have my favorite camera back. hurray!

i’ve been thinking about double exposures for a while now. i love the serendipity of the mismatched frames, the randomness and chaos and unexpected beauty that comes with not knowing what is going to happen. but, so far, there has been no reliable way to find film swap partners. it’s partly my fault — i’m too shy to bug friends too often, and too impatient to post requests on random photography groups… so i end up “swapping” films with myself, shooting, rewinding and shooting again… which isn’t half as much fun.

but what do you do when you have a problem, and suspect others might have it too? well, we’re millennials… we make websites. so i made a very simple website (or, rather, i bugged my brother long enough that he acquiesced to turning my idea into reality) that works suspiciously like postcrossing, but with film: you expose a roll of film, rewind and send it to someone else, and then receive one back from another random person for you to double-expose and keep.

the beta version is ready, and i’m looking for testers to see where we can go from here. if you like the idea, and want to help test and improve it (and swap some rolls of film along the way!), join me at roll4roll.com.

i’m… cautiously optimistic that this will work! :)
