There is quite a bit of film stock, that I already shot, but didn’t upload to the blog. Maybe I should prepare some posts ahead of time and schedule them, so that there’s a steady flow of new material. I’m still a bit unsure about what to do with this project.
For now here’s some East-German black and white cinema film, that I quite like. Sadly it’s somewhat hard to get. As I understand it, the manufacturer only offers 122m as minimal order volume. So your best bet is to hunt for already hand-rolled cartridges on eBay.
All images were taken during a FoDo photo walk around a big shopping mall called “Paunsdorf Center”. / The history of ORWO is a good read as well.

Since I’m behind schedule quite a bit, I’ll start numbering the blog entries by roll and not by week. On top of that I’d have to publish more than 2 rolls each week to catch up until the end of the year. I doubt that’ll happen, so I’ll continue the project into 2016 until 52 rolls are done.
There are almost no leaves on the trees anymore, I’m very glad I had the chance to spend a weekend in the Hainichen national park.
