Darren Kelland

I don’t know when solitude ends and loneliness begins. My life is full of great people and I love spending time with them. I balance that with time alone, normally with an old film camera and a roll or two of black and white film.

I search for answers to internal questions. I look for the extraordinary in the everyday. I yearn for tranquility in the midst of life’s noise.

Film is such a beautiful medium. It has depth and structure that draws me in. Almost all of my favourite photographers and influences are film photographers. Almost all of them use only black and white film.
