I recently sent a package over to Chris and Grace Hughes, of ‘A Nerd’s World' in Toronto, Canada. They have a phenomenal camera collection, they are currently trying to break the world record for the most unexposed camera film, they have a photography and graphic design studio, they collect and develop exposed camera film (from their antique camera finds) - basically, they are my photography heroes!
If I didn’t have plans to mover to Australia, then I think I would be heading over to Toronto to be a ‘nerd’. Grace had always commented on the Kodak cool bag (shaped like a 35mm film box) - so I thought I would ‘pay it forward’ and send them a package containing all the things they would enjoy.
The package contained: The Kodak cool bag, Kodak Plates (boxed and sealed), Kodak Verichrome Pan 120 film (expired July 1963), Kodak Instamatic 25 camera with undeveloped film inside, Ilford HP3 120 film (expired Sept 1963) and an Ilford Universal 50C camera with undeveloped film inside.
I am hoping they will finish and develop the film for us all to see and maybe send something back my way to continue the surprise.
If you love ‘found film’, then you should really check out the ‘Found' section of their website.
