Article on BBC website about Kodak moments

Once again Kodak was all over the news this morning. They have filed for bankruptcy protection.

There is an article here by Jamillah Knowles bringing together memories and quotes about from people whose lives have been affected by Kodak, both personally and professionally. I was lucky enough to have had some of my views quoted in the article:

“I have been a photographer for over 20 years and have remained analogue throughout. I believe passionately in the beauty and power of film photography.

I have used Kodak Film and chemicals from day one. It has become a part of me and my voice and I would be at a loss without it.

Kodak and it’s film products are a part of our heritage and in particular, as far as I am concerned the hey day of black and white photography.

I have everything crossed that they will continue to produce film and chemicals, or that someone will buy that branch of the business and take it on. We are in the midst of an analogue revival in the world of photography and to lose Kodak at the last minute would be an absolute tragedy.”
