Combinations – Zorki 4 and Redscaled Film
Shooting with the Red October theme is one thing, shooting a Soviet Zorki 4 camera with redscale film is a combination that doesn’t get any more red. This ensures that the tool is red (aka Soviet), but also the result (aesthetically). The thought of this came through a suggestion from a friend on the yearly Red October theme that is shot by photographers that appreciate cameras made from former Soviet countries.

As photographers, we sometimes concentrate so much on capturing something so different that we forget to capture the defining beauty of our city. In this project I am aiming at capturing what tourists know but locals forget is sometimes there. This will be an ongoing project for me, I suspect years in the making, but in the end, it will encompass all of the well-known Icons of Sydney, but will also include some lesser known ones which normally…
