Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World

  "In a very fast paced world, I think film is a very good tool to learn how to stop for a moment and acknowledge it." In Take Time to Stop, Take a Photo, and REALLY See the World fromPechaKucha Night London Vol. 11, Ksenia Zizina shares how shooting film makes her better at seeing and appreciating the world. Zizina is a designer with a passion for all things creative - architecture, photography, art, design, travel - you name it! She works in architectural practice and uses the rest of her time to make photographs. Photography has become second nature for Zizina. It is an essential part of her 'storytelling' which involves preparing the film stock, shooting, developing negatives, scanning and archiving. She considers all parts as one creative approach to photography. Ksenia not only shares some of her beautiful images but also conveys her passion for all the small and interesting aspects of the world and how taking photos helps her appreciate these things. By the end, you will want to pull out your camera and take some snaps of your community, your environment, and your world!
