John’s Canadian Black & White Photo Gallery!

Canadian Black & White Photo Gallery: John Thomson’s favourite collection from 2020, with the added atmosphere of black and white images shot on film. All from Canada in the 80s and 90s – Classic work from John.

John introduces his Black & White collection: Digital cameras have greatly improved cycling photography, but I still love the look of black and white film. These are shots taken in southern British Columbia mostly in the 1980s and 90s using Pentax and Nikon 35mm, Pentax 645 with a leaf shutter lens and an old Rolleicord twin lens reflex with a Metz potato masher flash.
