Embrace the Grain

Be the grain you want to see in the world. Film grain is not a nasty spec on a piece of film, it is literally what creates the images you see. Tiny silver halide crystals storing the light bounced off the world.


When we see grain in our film photo, its a symbol of joy rather than a blemish on an image. Grain are the building blocks of our photographic joy. Embrace the grain of your life. Focus on the grain rather than the image. Realize the grain is the subject not what your taking a photo of. Seek grain rather than destroy it. To multiply our joy we must multiply our grain.

The more refined the grain, the more grain that exists in an image the more invisible it appears. Seek the grain of your life, multiply it and dominate every blade of grass or sand you step on.
