Found Archive: Fuji HG 200

The Found Archive was created by using the images taken by my father Michael Chippington during the 1980s to early 2000s. In his younger years he was a keen photographer and has a good eye. Michael typically captured events in our family lives, our outings, our friends, gatherings and so on.

The negatives had been stored in a fireproof box for years and some showed signs of wear. During the archival process I scanned the negatives but also transferred them to an archival folder and negative sleeves.

It has taken me one year to scan his negatives – around 2500 images. The photographs were scanned using a Plustek OpticFilm 8100 at 6×4 300ppi. I am presenting the images with dust, scratches and all imperfections. There has been a removal of colour casts from scanning and also white balance adjustment. However – during this colour correction stage I have used the photograph prints or the same film from online to ensure I have not introduced colours that are a misrepresentation of the film properties.

This particular roll of film is from 1991 and features my sister and I with family members at Christmas.
