This must be the longest roll i’ve ever shot – it stayed in the camera (Leica Minilux) the entire winter, few months – slowly advancing in it. This film, the strange and wonderful Ferrania Solaris 200 FG+, no longer in production and no longer available on ebay – had expired in early 2010, but was kept frozen until my delivery (?) and after i got it. Warmth, earth, nostalgia – are the words that come to mind to describe this film.
Images are from Cape Town, Braamfontein / Constitutional Hill / Hillbrow, the obligatory Everard Reed gallery images, Troyeville – the proximity to and Cape Town itself, is alone one compelling reason to remain around a bit longer ..
Here’s the roll, scanned on a Canon 9000F. Summer – Winter 2014
