Daniel Månsson and Peter Sahlberg are close friends who have travelled and created still and motion surf projects over the last 15 years.
Daniel has had a yearning to shoot a surf project on super 8mm film, something that correlates with his style of 35mm film still photography. After playing around and experimenting with different cameras and ideas, he got dialed in, just in time for a trip to Ireland.
“I like the limitation film gives you, it makes you so much more present and aware of every moment, and hold it, hold it, wait, and then focus 100 percent when you know you got something special in front of your lens. It’s definitely a challenge to shoot with a 40 year old German camera in an old water housing, and then the fact that you have to wait two weeks to see if the film even got exposed right makes the whole journey even more exciting.”
