Rain across the hills

A series of black and white analog photos, made in the vicinity of the town of Hurup Thy (north Jutland, Denmark) and the city of Nijmegen (The Netherlands).

This experimental series is made with a very old Eastman Kodak – No 3 Folding Pocket Kodak camera, built more then 100 years ago, between the years 1900 and 1903.
For more info on this camera, scroll to the bottom of this page.

A good friend of mine owns such a camera, technically in a reasonable condition. She let me use the camera, and I tried to make abstract and impressionist photos with it.

The roll film for this camera has not been on sale since the sixties of last century. That’s why I used a ‘modern’ roll film. These are less wide, so the film in the camera is not nicely flat and transporting the film for a next photo you have to do on your feelings.

The first film was a complete failure ūüė¶

On the second film, with a lot of imagination you can see a landscape in one photo. Another friend gave this photo the title ‚ÄėThe rain moves across the hills‚Äô. On the rest of the photos of that film, the world has disappeared into a thick gray fog‚Ķ

The 3rd film has given three nice results ūüôā

The rain moves across the hills

Landscape near Hurup Thy, photo made on the second film

For me this is a not so successful attempt to make an ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) photo with this old camera, but I think it has become a very nice abstract landscape photo. It was the first photo on which the sloping fields can be recognized, a friend gave the photo the title ‘The rain moves across the hills’. That title describes the mood very well !

Along the canal

Path along a canal in the vicinity of the city of Nijmegen, photo made on the third film

This is the first photo of the third roll film with which I have experimented. Intended as a ‘normal photo’, however I did not have a tripod at hand. The slow shutter speed has caused some blur, and the back of the camera appears not to be completely light-tight (causing the light flares from the bottom).

Breathings of winter

This is the second photo of the third roll film with which I have experimented. The first Intentional-Camera-Movement photo with a vertical movement, that I made with this camera.

This is an advertisement that Eastman Kodak used in the years 1900-1903 to promote her new camera No 3 Folding Pocket Kodak.

Apparently it was a good camera, because – although it was only produced for 3 years – to this day models can still be found in a reasonable to good condition.
