Summer in 35mm: ThrowbackSpecial edition presented by Coleman Saunders Real Estate
Photographs by Grant Monahan
“Summer in 35mm” is a special edition of Whalebone which started with an anachronistic celebration of good old film but on our digital platform. We righted and this and put the photographs into a lovely print edition, suitable for your coffee table or to wedge in that space between the seat and the tacklebox on your boat. The choice is yours, but you can get it here. Alas, the limitations of paper are that only had so many pages and five fine individuals shooting their hearts out.
So, we are presenting here what in the days of DVD would be called bonus features. This one is from our good friend Grant Monahan. Enjoy!
We’re sorry but you still can’t smell the suntan lotion.
For me shooting 35mm film allows you to be more present in the moment and enjoy what you are capturing.
My summer was spent working 11 to 12 hour days seven days a week. After work I usually rush like a madman to either surf, fish, or drink beers with my friends. All of these 35mm photographs were taken between the hours of 5pm–12am, and one rare day off.
For me shooting 35mm film allows you to be more present in the moment and enjoy what you are capturing, a throwback to a time when we didn’t stare at digital screens all day.
