People feel less intimidated when being photographed with an old camera.
I don’t know if they take you less seriously or if it’s just a moment of adoration for the beautiful camera, but I feel like people open up way quicker and more easily when they’re being photographed with an analogue camera.

Jakob grew up almost exclusively with digital and just began to explore analogue photography a couple of years ago. Analogue photography (despite being the older technique) is a new field for Jakob. A field he considers his playground, where he can experiment and explore more, because for him, a film camera is easier to handle.

Right now Jakob is working on a (digital) project about Burma. He was there for a month and really wants to go back to continue his project, probably taking his Yashica with him!
