    Hello everybody,
    in Japan, there is an unbreakable interest to use the tradional film.
    Many japanese photographers took part at the Photocontest with
    impressive results. Look here:

    We can more understand the activities around the tradtional films,
    if we know that in Japan young artist have a more closer confidence to
    BW-films. The enhusiasm to take pics,developing and printing pics from B&W negatives continue to exist.

    Regards
    Walter

    There are a lot of film-centric Japanese publications. A lot of them somewhat nostalgic, but apparently aimed at young women. It's a current fashion?
