While testing the film/camera combination for my Memories book project, I attended a district expedition in Leipzigs biggest district “Grünau”. There’s a lot of old socialist architecture (faceless concrete everywhere), but lately a lot of green was added.
The expedition featured a pseudo-scientific logbook with a map and tasks, which were quite engaging to complete.
I used to live near there as a child, so it was interesting / strange to return as an adult. The film used is advertised as “surreal color film”, so it fit my mood quite well. The strange border on two of the photos is the film ripping in half, when I tried to rewind it, making the only camera I brought unusuable after the first roll of film.
