“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”

Ansel Adams

Omaha Beach Cemetery

These were shot during my trip to Normandy, France in August. They are from the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial at Omaha Beach. Omaha Beach saw some of the bloodiest fighting on D-Day and the battle and cemetery are both featured in the movie Saving Private Ryan.

These were shot using FPP RetroChrome 160 film and processed as E-6. The film has a bluish tone to it (which isn’t my favourite), but looks awesome when cross-processed (see examples here). If you want to try some RetroChrome, the Film Photography Project is having a 50% off sale on RetroChrome 160 & 320 film until the end of January.
