Kenneth Wajda shoots with film for his fine art projects because he believes there’s a soul to an image made with silver halides that are exposed to light. Plus, the negative is archival, so it can be preserved for generations to come much more securely than a digital file, which can be corrupted or lost.
Many of Kenneth’s commercial portrait clients have said the film portraits and the photographers working with film have a different way of working, a slower way of creating the image. It’s not about quantity of shots made, but more about connecting with the portrait subject, and film is a medium that lets the photographer do that.
Connection is what Kenneth is seeking in his portraiture.
