Charles, intersting stuff

Here's his website -

and the 10x8 that he's using in the video is probably one of the fairly low in number cult Camera's that were made by Dick Phillips, in fact it is, here's a link confirming this -

Actually the camera in the video is an Ebony (at least the scenes I've seen)...but he does use Canham and Philips (and did foer his most famous work I think)...and Hasselblad digital, and Phase One....and a Mamiya 6....and......i'm sure the list goes on...

Looks like a great film though.

I think i've read somewhere that he loves the ease of digital...but is slightly addicted to a large ground glass, and so uses both.
