A Teddy Bear

One gloomy day I was walking along the road and saw this teddy bear – the ready-made composition (and a sad story) on itself. But film is sometimes surprisingly unpredictable, as you know. After the film was developed I noticed this even more gloomy and faded effect the film and a camera had put into it.

The camera, by the way, was the old Soviet Rolleiflex-like camera Lubitel 166, which is infamous for its glitching shutter. It had happened to me before with this camera and it happened that time, the exposure was longer than I set and that’s why the whole image is shaky.

Still, as I said, the story itself is pretty sad, so all those mishaps only add up to it.
