The photographs in The Summer Memories Collection are shot on analogue film. Compared to fast-paced digital photography, working with analog film gives moments of pause. There is a limit of exposures, that allows for only certain snapshots to be actually captured. The risk of technical imperfections becomes part of the story, Ana Santl explains. “I’m hoping that my work can serve as a mental holiday for those who decide to put them in their homes”.
Cast in nostalgic golden light, the work of Slovenian-born globetrotter and photographer Ana Santl is filled with memories.
In her professional work, she mainly focuses on travel and interior, whereas her personal work is focused on documenting her and her family’s everyday life on analogue film. Using the analogue approach gives her work a feeling of preservation and capturing authentic moments: “My process in my personal work is intuitive and spontaneous, a diary of moments that I want to remember,” she says.
