In 1997 my father gave me my first film camera, a used 1978 35mm Nikon FE. It was the most cherished item of my adolescence.
In 2017, my wife and I bought our first home and finally cleaned out my closet in my father’s house. In the process, I rediscovered my old photo albums. First Rolls is a document of youth from 1997 to 2003, during the waning years of vernacular film photography, before the rise of the digital experience.
