Birmingham's People 10 – TheWishy

One of the most important  aims of Birmingham Photospace is to create a spiritual home in the city for the vast number of dedicated photoenthusiasts  who prowl its streets.

One of the most enthusiastic photographers that we know has the Flickr name TheWishy and is an evangelist of the more esoteric areas of film photography. He can often be found at the monthly Birmingham Flickrmeets extolling the virtues of many weird and wonderful classic cameras.

He has a particular penchant for Polaroid cameras such as this beautiful Land camera which are now sadly becoming rarer and rarer sights on our streets. I’m a huge fan of that unique Polaroid look, one that you can never imitate authentically digitally. We’re proud to support the band of dedicated people fighting to keep it alive.
