Adventures with the Recesky Twin Lens Reflex Camera

This is the first roll of film I’ve taken with the Recesky Twin Lens Reflex Camera I received last Christmas. The photographs were all taken in Turnhout and in Brussels (in the rain).

As you can see from the film roll, there were many unexpected but pretty sexy light leaks, and one of the exposures was even ripped off halfway through (because I didn’t wind the film properly, I think).

I had been blatantly imagining myself as a 21st century Vivian Maier, daydreaming about all of those amazing black and white documentary portraits I would take of the contemporary life around me. I don’t know what I loved more; her work itself or her twin reflex camera.
