Feature #78 Mark Wyatt “a deeper sense of ‘being there”

Most of Mark Wyatts photos in the ‘Street Photos 1980’ blog were shot around 1980 while wandering streets in cities like Paris, Calcutta, Istanbul, Kathmandu, and Florence.  His images are displayed full-frame, un-cropped; they were all shot on 35mm film – the B/Ws mostly on Kodak Tri-X and some Plus-X, with either a Nikkormat FT2, an Asahi Pentax K1000, or a Nikon F2, and with either a 28mm, 50mm, 85mm or 200mm Fixed Focal Length lens.  His more recent blog entries were shot primarily in China around 1995 with the the Nikon F2 and on Fujicolor 200, some on Tri-X.  Lately, Mark has been shooting in digital, but is seriously considering returning to film, mostly because for some reason images shot on film seem to give a deeper sense of ‘being there’, even when scanned and printed digitally.
