Andra Mavropol - 5 things I love about Film

Andra Mavropol is a Transylvania-based photographer, Romania. Influenced by Roland Barthes and Jean Baudrillard. "I think the photographic act is contributing to the symbolic death of the object, reducing it to a silent signification and an inescapable stillness." she says.

Andra loves photographing so much, especially with her film cameras.

And here are 5 reasons why she has still loved shooting film.

1. Graining – I think it gives a carthesian feeling to the photo; everything in the universe is made from grains (well, atoms nowadays); there is no space between objects in reality, it is only us that perceive space as empty because our senses fail at noticing every single particle.




2. Light-leaks – some think they ruin one’s photo, I think it sometimes gives it a ghosty-feeling.




3. Film-scratches – are a beautifully-random reminders of the medium used. Also, they add to the vintage feeling of the photo.




4. Shooting on both-sides – the best idea for awesome colours and surprising double-exposures.




5. Accidental swap with friends’ films – everyone’s got old family photos; it’s funny when you get to see them although you’re not supposed to. It’s even more funny if your own photos make an accidental match with them.
