If you know anyone who loves to take photos the old school way, they’ll tell you how cool it is to use an expired film once in a while – the colours get all funky and you’ll end up with strong greens or oranges, no filters needed.

What about a film that was perfectly fine at the time it was used, but was left in a drawer, waiting for more than 20 years to be developed?

These were taken in Madeira, not by me but by my mother while on a business trip. She passed away a few years later and I was suddenly able to see brand new images through my mom’s eyes two decades later.

Priceless findings like these are one of the reasons why I love analogue – as much as digital makes our lives easier, history feels a lot more real when it can be touched.
