Museum presentation spotlights film photography

STE. GENEVIEVE – Film photography has a unique aesthetic quality that has been popular with artists and photographers for generations. But film cameras fell out of favor when digital cameras came on the scene.


Photographer James Kyle jumped on the digital band wagon, but soon went back to his film camera roots. Kyle says there’s a certain nostalgia with film photography that evokes memories of simpler times when people had to wait for their photos to be developed.


Kyle will be a guest speaker at the Sainte Genevieve Museum Learning Center on Wednesday, June 12 at 7 p.m.


During his presentation, sponsored by Frank and Annette Rolfe, he’ll discuss how truly easy it is to use a film camera, its advantages and how satisfying it is to develop your own photographs.


All presentations are free to museum members, otherwise, museum admission will apply.
