Below is a small collection of images that I have taken over the past few months in Hong Kong. Last year, my old faithful workhorse Mamiya 645 broke beyond repair and after much thought, I settled on a Hasselblad 500c/m to replace it. I sold quite a bit of my digital camera gear to be able to fund this: a Hasselblad 500c/m body, two A12 film backs and also with these funds, I was also able to buy two Zeiss lenses: 150/4 and 80/2.8. Those who know me well, know that working with analogue is where I am most content in terms of photography. The below images were taken on both commissioned assignments and personal projects with a range of film stock from Portra 160 & 400, Ektar 100, Ilford HP5 and Ilford Delta 400. Most were shot at box speed but a few rolls were pushed a stop or two.
