Ashley Brown is a Japan-based photographer who has been shooting film for about 30 years with a Canon A-1. “I never felt the need to switch to digital. I've always loved the individual personalities of reversal (slide) films, especially in terms of colour reproduction and expression.”
“Living in Japan for the last 15 years has been a great experience, a country in which colour is so prominent in its long cultural history as well as its natural features. Shooting reversal film these days is expensive, but the upside is that you become very selective and take a lot of care with each shot; colour and composition are my watchwords, and if I'm not satisfied with both, I'll probably pass. That said, once I've exhausted Japan's more obvious themes, I'll need to become a more spontaneous street photographer, and I'm looking forward to exploring which film will be best for the task!”
