I bought this film new from a professional photo store in Helsinki, Finland in 2004, I think. It was kept in a refrigerator storage (2-6 degrees Celsius). I kept ALL my films until July 2014 in deep fridge (at least -18 degrees Celsius) basically from the moment I got them. Then, as my company moved to a new location I had no more enough deep freeze place for all my films, like these sheets. Inside, where the films have been stored, the room temperature has been ca. + 3 .. 10 degrees Celsius during wintertime (ca. November – April) and ca. + 10 .. 17 degrees Celsius at other times. During January – May 2016 ALL films were well covered outside at ca. -33 .. + 10 degrees Celsius and after that time I moved all my films inside (temperatures as above). Usually, black-and-white film is not sensible at all for expiry dates, as it has no colors to go fishy, and hence I haven’t tested my b&w films lately.
There are 11 unexposed 9×12 cm sheet films in the open box that weighs 100 g, and the scale’s inaccuracy is +/- 5 g, see attached photos.
I bought this film with others to use in France for my fine art residency. Yes, would you believe, I have been the fortunate first Finnish photographer ever to get the Hôtel Chevillon residence grant from the Finnish Cultural Foundation. I stayed six months in 2004 (February – July) in the idyllic village of Grez-sur-Loing, some 70 km south of Paris, where Nordic artists established a colony in the 1880s. Being so closely tied to many (Swedish) colleagues of fine art, i.e., oil & aquarelle painters, writers, draftsman and fine art printers (no other photographer), I got anew fascinated by the forma, or the essence, of an artist. That is, how each artist is unique in her/his own way but still perhaps – that is the key question – possesses characteristics that are common to all members of the field of fine art but not to its outsiders. In Grez, I studied behind the camera lens all the (willing) artists during my stay there and took several hundreds of frames of them, mostly using large (4*5″) and medium (6*7 cm) format film. Of course, I did in Hôtel Chevillon also many other things, like write a small book of mine (which slowly got a lot bigger and needed another year to accomplish).
With so many cameras, film material and things to do in France and afterwards elsewhere, I never shot this box of Ilford HP 5 plus 400 until the end. Still, I liked the film pretty much. It is easy to process and you can well push it and you can even pull it as well with suitable film developers. Yes, I remember I did all those tricks, but it has been a while, so don’t ask me more.. ,)
I am selling this box in auction, starting 1 euros, with reserve and buy it now 20 euros.
Yes, of course I will combine shipping for reduced shipping costs. I urge you to my buy more from me and will be flexible with it. Please note the somewhat expensive shipping costs from Finland, especially if insurance is needed. If the value of order gets to a higher level, I insist on taken an insurance for the shipping.
If you buy this item – please keep it in deep freezer for best results! 🙂
