Film photography isn’t just switching cameras, it’s switching mindsets. It’s considering things such as composition, exposure and framing and the fact you might only have 12 exposures, all before you hit the shutter button. There is no LCD back for an instant view; you simply wait and wonder. However, when all the elements come together the payoff is worth the wait. Staff photographer Razan Alzayani used a Russian Lubitel Twin Lens Reflex camera to capture an otherworldly view of Dubai. The course film grain and roughness of the camera combine to create an aesthetic that can only be described as beautiful imperfection.
