Hello all,

Issue II/2019 of PhotoKlassik International is out now!

The latest issue of PhotoKlassik International, the print journal about all things analog/film, is available online, and we are excited about the contents!

It’s a colorful extravaganza, with Cibachrome cover artist Christopher Burkett, gorgeous large format portraits from Polish photographer Renata Mlynarczek, eye-popping New York street photography from Adam Miller, and amazing 20 x 24-inch Polaroids from Oilver Blohm of Germany.

A special article commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing shows many photos from the mission, both the well-known standards and some that aren’t often seen. The article tells the story of NASA’s cooperation with firms from around the world that made photography on the moon possible, focusing on Hasselblad, of course, but also ZEISS and Kodak.

A theme that runs through the issue is Hollywood’s love of celluloid. Vanessa Bendetti, Vice President of Kodak Motion Picture, talks about the rows of big-name directors who cleaned up at the Oscars in 2019 with movies shot on film and how Hollywood money and clout is helping to save film for all of us.

Gear doesn’t come up short, either, with articles on a custom-built horizontal Mega-Enlarger for negatives up to 20 x 24 inches from Heiland Electronic, a case for new lens on old cameras, an entertaining look at the cameras that have featured in the Bond movies over the years, and the basics of enlargers and tips for buyers.

There is lots more: Japan Camera Hunter, Super8 in professional use, studio light metering, portfolios from China, Italy, and the UK, and the in-depth story behind the saving of Tetenal, including hints about where the company is headed now.

One of the things that we like best about PKI is that the quality of the print and paper is so high that it is really more of a soft-cover book, something you’ll want to hang on to, browse the fantastic reproductions in the portfolios just like you would in a photo book, and re-read the articles. You can get your copy online now, and it will also be available in the US through Freestyle and from CameraFilmPhoto.com in Hong Kong.
