Reely and Truly: A Short Film on Photography

Shot on Super-8, 35mm, 65mm and just about every other celluloid format possible, Reely and Truly gives you an intimate glimpse into the lives and practices of some of our greatest contemporary photographers including Juergen Teller, Mark Lebon, Dick Jewell, Jack Webb, Sean Vegezzi, Jason Evans, Nigel Shafran, Fumiko Imano, Charchakaj Waikawee, Lina Scheynius, Nobuyoshi Araki, and Takashi Homma. Highly Recommended.

If you only have enough time left in the day to watch one video, this one should be taking high priority on your list.

Even if you’re not a photographer (myself included), you might just take away a few key learnings after watching this short, experimental documentary which features over 30 contemporary photographers.

Director Tyrone Lebone shot on almost every film format available: 65mm, 35mm, super 16mm, 16mm, and super 8mm. The result is a beautifully layered visual essay.

Lebon places himself at the centre of the film as a curious observer, questioning the nature of photography and hanging out with the great and the good of contemporary photography.

This film is a precursor to a book which you can pre-order here.
