Going Old School – Ana & Ashley’s Month on Film

Ashley Thompson & Ana Homonnay recently spent a month apart – Ana in Brazil and Ashley in the southern and western parts of the US. They both shot all the images on film with Hasselblad cameras. As Ashley said: “We both love using film because of the nostalgic aspect of it, but also because we love the texture and feel it brings to a world filled with digital images.”

The result shows their love of shooting portraits and capturing faces that tell so many stories whether here in the US or in a completely different country.  

The trips were about getting back to their roots: Ana in Brazil and Ashley in the American South. They were so important to them because as they commented: “Everything is changing at such a quick pace, we want to capture our childhood memories in a visual way.”
