Tobias Feltus: video from the field


Tobias Feltus discusses here his New55 FILM reagent experimentation, which took place over many months in his kitchen in Scotland.

Tobias' early enthusiasm and contributions were instrumental to progress and his extraordinary images, featured in the Backers Gallery, gave us a measure of confidence at a time when confidence was thin and uncertainty thick.

Says Tobias,

He continues, 

"And to be perfectly honest, I think the cost is actually pretty competitive ..."
