    A Film Legacy

    I recently stumbled upon the work of
    a deceased doctor and amateur photographer from New Zealand called Roland G Phillips-Turner who in the 1950′s and 60′s travelled around remote regions of New Zealand’s North Island doing medical research and documenting his travels with his Leica M5 and Hasselblad 500c.

    Here are a couple of samples - click image to enlarge.

    I thought that the second picture was somehow different and this becomes clearer on looking at the full size. There was something quite different about Agfa film which carried over into its last offering of Agfa Vista colour neg.

    Technicolour there weren't but they had something about them and we've now lost that colour signature which is a pity

    There are more Agfacolor Dia images in the full post here - http://aperturepriority.co.nz/2012/1...m-legacy-pt-1/

    It's certainly a film I wasn't familiar with and definitely one I would choose to use today.....what a pity :-(

    Cheers, Jason.

    What are the falls in the first image, do you know? To me they have a slight resemblance to Korokoro Falls at Lake Waikaremoana in the north island, mind you, the openness of the scene is misplaced. Beautiful all the same with nostalgic colour.
