Inside Dan James’s Camera bag! (Bag No17)
I’m Dan James from Sussex, UK. I’m pretty new to street photography, and finding my style as I go. What I’m noticing attracts me most is not direct portraits and candids of people, but the traces and stories people have left on the streets themselves – weathered doors, discarded litter, abandoned buildings. The songs of the streets, written by those who’ve visited them. I’m also a big fan of simply capturing colours, shapes and perspectives that draw my attention and delight my eyes. After recently dabbling with digital again, via a Pentax DSLR and Sony NEX, both with vintage lenses, then a cheap Cybershot compact, I’ve realised it’s just not a media I can get excited about.
So I’ve returned to shooting 100% with film cameras. The experience of using these beautiful vintage objects with their unique personalities, sounds, and scents, helps me immerse more deeply in the whole experience.
