Anna Aguirre is a film photographer based in Los Angeles, CA. She has a focus on the experimental, physical, and alchemic, element to film often manipulating the film with chemicals and anything else that will push the emulsion to its limits. Photography is her method of connection with the world, and of recreating her dream scenes into something almost tangible.
"I am an aspiring photographer from the United Kingdom. My work focuses heavily on themes of femininity and youth. Through out my work I strive to capture the power in this but also the vulnerability. At this divine age, we can face what are seemingly some of the most challenging circumstances in our lifetime. People expect us to know our path and stay true to norms. But I don’t believe it to be about that. Youth to me is about experience having the will and way to delve into different mediums of exploration and photography has aided this for me in particular. I encourage my friends and models to engage with this, so that what we create is not only my vision but feels personal to them also."
"I'm a 22 year old, self taught, queer film photographer based in Portland, OR. My main focus is portraiture with an emphasis on capturing true to life images of people and their form. I like working with LGBTQ+ and POC models because I get to show people that "ideal" beauty is not synonymous with straight and white. I hope to break into the world of fashion and professional photography to show off the people in this world that I truly find beautiful and inspiring."

"Photography is simply finding a way to create in real life. I like to think there is a message behind my photos, but it's more me trying to portray an emotion or simply showing a moment I lived through. I love the idea of stopping a tiny frame of time and adding my own colors and meanings to it.
"I'm a 25 year old Photographer based in Madrid. I was born in south Spain, more precisely in Málaga. I've been shooting film for almost 5 years.
I always try to carry my Olympus MJU everywhere I go, so my photography is spontaneous and natural. I try to capture what I see in my everyday life. From my way to work, to a concert at night, or a party with friends. I consider myself a passionate person and very observant. So I try capture everything I am close to as real and pure as I see it. I've been shooting film for almost 5 years."
"Being only sixteen years old, I spend my days daydreaming of a future that allows me to let my creative juices flow like the Mississippi. I live in the country of north eastern Ohio in a very small town. I often find it difficult to not give in to boredom- it’s so easy to fall into the rabbit hole of disinterest, and to label my surroundings as terribly underwhelming. My passion for photography, however, has drastically changed my perspective. I’ve learned to draw inspiration from my surroundings, no matter how dull they may seem. Ordinary things have a beauty of their own, you just have to actually look. I love being able to capture seemingly average moments or things, and being able to reveal the uniqueness and unconventional beauty that I see."
