About

Might a camera roll be eco-friendly? We’ve asked you a question:

People surveyed from the street, passionates, professionals and  industry experts gave us a great response rate showing their interest for the topic. Thanks to everyone we’ve kept believing in our idea and over time we’ve worked on the project that we’re here to present today: 

The 35mm eco-friendly canister from compagnia-imago! 


We’re a professional photography firm and accordingly with our experience we’ve noticed how much wastes traditional photography produces over time. Our aim is to reduce them and to find a way to be environmentally responsible. 
The answer to the question “DO YOU WOOD FILM?” is now in our very hands and it will be into yours very soon. Or better said into your cameras!

The 35mm eco-friendly canister from compagnia-imago is totally organic and made with PLA (biodegradable and compostable materials). PLA is the polylactic acid, a polymer derived from common trees and crops like corn or beets are. The main idea behind is their being full of natural sugars, as such sugars are staple elements in the production of PLA with corn as the richest one actually. 



The uniqueness of the skin of the 35mm camera roll is due to a 30% containt of fibers from wood. Thanks to this characteristic it’s not only innovative, but cool and eco-friendly as well. You could choose between two different kinds of wood: NATURAL and BAMBOO one. 



But there is more, because the 35mm camera roll is rechargeable as well in an easier and more intuitive way. That’s because of the new screwable cap as it allows a faster positioning of the film and an easier management during the development phase .This means one thing: a great saving of time and money!


Of course we’ve not forget the films!. For this first batch we’ve chosen to use two different films, a white one and a black one. The first is a 200 ISO/25 exp to be used together with the NATURAL canister, while the second on is a 400 ISO/25 exp associated to the BAMBOO canister. 

This is a very fine grain black & white film with a wide exposure lattitude. It comes with about 25 exposures in each roll. It gives a unique look and is great for experimentation. You can push it, you can pull it, and it develops in a wide range of developers including Rodinal and Caffenol!

    It will cover just about any situation you might encounter. You can shoot it from ISO 25 to 200 and get acceptable results with normal development. When shot at ISO 64 or below it produces a negative with extremely fine grain, while shooting at 200 gives fairly acceptable image.



In order to be even more consistent with our mission the most common packaging has been dramatically changed as well. It’d come as a recycled box made 100% natural kraft recycled, it’d be hard in order to assure the safeness of the film, but it’d also be cool and eco-friendly as the compagnia-Imago wants. 


But the packaging’d be even more cool: the film won’t fill all of the space available inside of the box, because it will come together with a pin and a corn seed. The pin would be the symbol of the eco-friendly photographer! Keep it with you all of the time! Let everyone know that you’re a GREEN PHOTOGRAPHER. 


The small corn seed won’t only have a symbolic value, once in a field it would give life to an other crop, the same used to produce our eco-friendly camera rolls. The idea to be able to end this cycle while giving back to the nature what received was one of the fil rouge of our project.

Due to international laws the seeds might only be planted inside of the EEU. The seeds that wouldn’t be shipped would be planted by ourselves in a dedicated field.

 Terra is a photography project gathering pictures that stress the main contrasts and views of the best landscapes of Italy.  In addition to a careful analysis of the main natural geometries offered by the Nature, “Terra” has the scope to let the people know how many different landscapes are in Italy!
To the reward 5 pictures coming from this project  have been selected, they will be printed on valuable paper rolls with a 20x30 cm font and only in 35 copies for each picture. All of them will be given in a passe-partout totally hand made by compagnia-imago.

Risks and challenges

We’re aware that it won’t be an easy process, that we might face issues over time mainly during the production phase because of our facilities. We’ve examined different scenarios anyway and if it might be necessary we’re more than willing to increase our productive capacity in order to fulfill by Spring 2016 whatever might be required. The main piece of advice is to subscribe to our newsletter anyway as that would be the best tool to be in touch.
