"I love traveling and it is also the reason for my film journey's beginning."
Tell us about yourself.
My name is Xiaomeng Cai (Simon Tsai), I'm 28 from China, now I live in Berlin as a student of communication design.
When and how did the film journey begin for you?
Since 2008 I've been shooting pictures on film. At that time I took the decision to drop out of my first university. I made several journeys after I left school and started to use the film camera.
What type of film do you usually shoot and what made you choose it?
I shoot Fuji superia 200 / 400 mostly.
What camera makes you click?
Canon AE-1 and Hasselbald 501c.
Between black and white and colour film which would you choose?
It depends. I usually use color film to record my trip around the world, but sometimes i would use b & w film to do some photo projects.
What lenses do you use?
Canon FD 50mm/1.4 ssc and Canon FD 85mm/1.2 L
Do you make any experiments on film?
No experiments, but I used to do some photogram practice and I also have a fine art project that is finished, with double-exposure.
I chose 10 pics from my trip. I love traveling and it is also the reason for my film journey's beginning.
