CDX – Carmencita Double X

Here it is! Our own version of the famed emulsion 5222, also known as Kodak Double-X. This film was originally created for cinematographers that wanted to record on BW back in the ’60s and seems like the emulsion hasn’t changed much ever since. If you’ve seen Schindler’s List, Raging Bull, or the latest The Lighthouse…

Few Frames w/ Michael Ferire

A DIFFERENT BACKSTAGE   We’ve known Michael Ferire for a long time already, one morning a package with single frames cut into an old 10×15 photo album appeared with his name and asking us to do the best we could.

We got to know many years ago through editorial photography, and throughout the time, we’ve also seen her work change, evolve and mature….

[NEW] BLACK EDGE in all 120 film formats is here!

Few Frames w/ Sarah Blard
