For those of you who thought film was dead, we’re happy to report that sentiment is clearly an exaggeration. First of all, a quick hashtag search on Instagram shows nearly 6 million users of #filmisnotdead vs a mere 6,816 tags with #filmisdead (!) Heck, that should settle it right there … but hey, don’t just take I/G’s word for it — go ahead and scroll down to see no less than five (5!) editorial stories and current ad campaigns that have run though the lab recently … and we’ve got more, believe us!


From the New Yorker to Nordstrom and Sonia Rikel to Nike — Zoe Ghertner, Max Farago, Ben Grieme, David Banjamin Sherry and Stefan Ruiz shot every format from 35mm to 8 x 10 this past season to deliver a stunning array of well …  really cool stuff.

Valerio Spada for GAP

Portrait of American Summer 2017
Valerio Spada
GAP / American Diversity Campaign


AdWeek (aka AdFreak) did a short piece on the Gap’s current Summer ’17 campaign shot by Victor Spada. They managed to be both snarky and respectful in the same breath while featuring a ton of images from Victor, all shot on film and processed you know where ….

Valario Spada: GAP Portrait of American Summer 2017


Here’s an excerpt:


Gap is continuing to celebrate the diversity of the young people it wants to buy its clothes.


A new print and video campaign, titled “I Am Gap,” from Untitled Worldwide takes a look at a range of personalities—found via street casting, rather than via a modeling agency—that the clothing retailer hopes captures the spirit of its brand.


Stills from the campaign feature faces from different backgrounds striking familiar fashion poses, while being hip and attractive.


A short anthem spot, meanwhile, summarizes the core thrust of the marketing effort. “You are the quiet strength in a roaring city,” it says. “You are the free spirit who welcomes the unknown. You are the cattle driver, the BMX rider, the artist in the making. You are worlds apart in life but neighbors in optimistic spirit. You are America. You are Gap.”


Because nothing says land of the free and home of the brave like off-the-rack denim, blouses and tees.

It’s a basic strategy consistent with the marketer’s fall 2016 campaign, also created with Untitled, which beautifully documented the likes of Brooklyn United, a community marching band for kids, teens and young adults. The tagline for that advertising was “Do You.” “I Am Gap” is channeled as an explicitly inclusive, patriotic concept, if perhaps less powerfully.


The fashion industry in general has struggled to represent a diverse cross-section of cultures in advertising, even as it has begun to improve diversity on the runway. Gap is one of a few notable exceptions.

Raymond Depardon for Libéracion and FIAF

Correspondance New-Yorkaise 2017

May 12–July 1, 2017

From the FIAF Press Release:


Raymond Depardon revisits his landmark Correspondance New-Yorkaise in a special new commission for the FIAF Gallery.


New photos taken daily from May 1-11, 2017 will be displayed alongside his 1981 series, creating a unique portrait of the city across decades.


In 1981, Raymond Depardon’s La correspondance New-Yorkaise was published in the Libération newspaper in France. Composed of humorous, observational, photographic notes—and no topical news—the newspaper dedicated a full page to this correspondence every day for a month. It was a pivotal moment both in French photography and in Depardon’s career. La correspondance New-Yorkaise marked a turn toward the “new journalism” of the era, which fed on daily life and featured first-person, subjective writing.


36 years later, this major French photographer and filmmaker takes a new look at New York, continuing his rare portrait of one city’s unexpected spaces. This exhibition takes place during the cycle of events celebrating 70 years of the Magnum Photos agency.

Raymond Depardon at FIAF, 2017


Earlier this Spring, our good friends at Picto introduced us to Raymond Depardon thereby offering a unique opportunity to participate in his iconic Correspondance New-Yorkaise 2017 project, now spanning some 30 + years since it’s inception.


Now, it’s not as if the expedited processing of Raymond’s 8 x 10 negatives each morning and the subsequent scanning of selections and final file prep for Libéracion for seven days straight wasn’t enough — but before we knew it (and who knows really (?) maybe it was the language barrier) we found ourselves producing a full blown exhibition of 40 x 50 archival pigment prints for the French Institute Alliance Française as well!
Bravo Raymond (!) it seems, is about all that’s left to say  …
