Eclipse watchers // Madison Memorial Union, April 2024

I know I’m late, but film takes time, especially when you’re someone like me who always finishes her rolls before developing her images.

But my goal here was to take images that were both timeless and very much set at a specific moment in time. It seems paradoxical, but it makes sense, at least I think it does. So I opted for my timeless beautiful old lady, the Kodak Retina IIIc rangefinder, loaded with Lomography’s delicate Earl Grey 100 film, and my can’t-ever-do-anything-wrong-and-when-she-does-it’s-right-anyways Holga 120 GFN, loaded with Lomography’s new lomochrome ’92 color film, to capture instantly nostalgic images.

I went with the family, and while I managed to escape a few times to do my thing, I always find it difficult to photograph the streets when I’m with the kids and with Moritz, also, the memorial unions was extremely crowded, which was good, there was people to photograph (for someone who likes to complain about the lack of people out and about…) but also very overwhelming, so I kept it minimal. 

Anyways, without further ado, here are my images of the 2024 North American Solar Eclipse, which was partial in Wisconsin, but still a thing to experience, but without a single photo of the sun, because we all know that’s not my style…

And here’s a few images of the family:

Bonus: two more photos taken with the Retina, on Kodak Tri-X 400 that expired in the 1980s
