New blood on the celluloid

Celebrating the young and emerging photographers keeping analogue alive with new show Young Blood/Old Shot

Young Blood, Old Shot
Giorgi Nebieridze

Shooting on film these days is often seen as a sentimental avenue for emerging photographers to take, especially considering the sometimes overwhelming waves of innovation we've seen recently. For the show's curators – photography bloggers Gray Brame and Tom Coleman, the use of analogue cameras and techniques was something that needed celebrating, running a submissions-based project which is about to go on show this week at London's Doomed Gallery. Speaking about the continuing importance of film Coleman said, "Although companys are generally reducing their film range due to smaller demand, there is a genuine community of young people committed to keeping the medium alive and exploiting it for artistic means". Featuring 24 young and emerging artists, including recent Dazed lightbox alumnus Ina Niehoff, the submissions prove that the analogue world is still very much alive.

Young Blood/Old Shot goes on show 27–30 March at Doomed Gallery, London.
