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.
Molly Gosewich, of Toronto, Ontario, shares her first roll of film from New Year’s Eve 2016. Her first shots on film include some complementary light leaks and double exposure. While I am not sure if this was part of the Mollie’s learning curve, we’ll simply appreciate them with their imperfections and all as well as the memories they recorded.
