My First Roll is a series for film photographers to share the images from their first roll of film. Everyone starts shooting at a different time and for different reasons. Some shooters may have started shooting yesterday while others have started shooting decades ago. This series provides a glimpse into the humble beginnings of individual photographers, encouraging us to reflect on our earlier work to find beauty and appreciation in our inexperience and to understand how we got to where we our now and where we want to go in our photographic journey.
Bradley Stearn from London, UK shares his first roll of film with us. Shot on Ilford HP5 with the class Pentax ME Super, these dramatic monochrome shots are beautiful first roll images.
