Unsensored14 is approaching and I can’t decide what image or images to exhibit. I have narrowed it down to 6. Vote on Flickr or tweet me your suggestion at @fotodudenz. I may even be able to do two Xpan shots.
Hi. Hey look at that! A blog post without words! So I’ve had this idea for a project in the back of mind for a few years now and I finally got around to starting it. It’s called Photographer Stories and it’s a podcast and each episode I will have a little chat with a photographer/photo taker/photo maker/someone in the photographic industry that I know, record it and put it on the internet. My biggest obstacle has been myself, I hate the sound of my own voice, like really afraid of it, I don’t even like how I sound when someone else reads what I have written. So then I realised I am looking at the cure for this right in the face, I make myself listen to my own voice and TA-DA! I am cured. So last Thursday I drove out to Malmsbury and had a little chat with my friend Rhys, recorded it and put it on the internet. Here it is.
In February 2014 Ambré and I were invited to a friend’s wedding in Rotorua, New Zealand. This gave me the perfect opportunity to sneak in a road trip around a previously, mostly unexplored part of New Zealand, known to the locals as The North Island.
Over 2 weeks we travelled from Auckland to Rotorua, Rotorua to Te Kaha, To Kaha to Gisborne, Gisborne to Napier, Napier to Wanganui and from Wanganui to Wellington.
I shot 16 rolls on the Mamiya 7, 4 rolls in the Xpan and 3 rolls with the Voigtlander.It’s been 3 long years since I made my last book so I thought it was about time I made another.
I thought it would be fun to throw something together from our recent trip to New Zealand. (un)Fortunately there are no smart arse comments but there are 81 awesome photos. There are two sizes available, 8×10 and 11×13. All profits will go towards the “Matthew wants another rangefinder” foundation.
