In many ways, film photography is a dying art. Japan, however — as the birthplace of Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Olympus, Sony and Fujifilm, among others — has earned its nickname as the “photography capital of the world” and could be the starting point of a movement led by young photographers to keep it alive. Some think it’s about nostalgia; others say it’s nothing but a fad, an ironic fixation with the tools and trinkets of a bygone era. “Film is expensive to develop and sort of a hassle, so I don’t think they’re doing it because it’s cool or trendy. I think they do it because they enjoy it,” says photographer Minami Sakamoto. Read the full story with the link in our bio.
