Analog Photography – Self Portrait without body

Last photography class was about different kinds of analog cameras. We looked into different kind of sensors like full frame and middle format.

We based almost all the class in the TLR, the twin lens reflex. This camera:


I was amazed to know how this camera works and it is getting really interesting to discover the technical and mechanical side of photography.

After about 3h of talking about this camera I just asked the teacher if I could borrow his and he said yes! The film was already inside and I have 12 photos, black and white.

Since I do not know a lot about work done with this camera I talked with a friend and he told me some references to research:

  • Vivian Maier
  • Nan Goldin
  • Garry Winogrand
  • Mike Mandel
  • Mark Steinmetz
  • Robert Frank
  • Henri Cartier-Bresson
  • Robert Mapplethorpe
  • William Eggleston
  • Diane Arbus

I went on Pinterest and here you have my photography board:

The task given at the end of the class was to make self portrait photography without body. This means we have to do self portrait without appearing in the actual pictures.

I still do not know how I will be able to complete this task but for now I am happy that I get to experiment with a new camera!

Stay tuned 🙂
