Photographer Gabe Scalise hails from Seattle, Washington, and has a particular affinity for analog film photography. He attributes this to growing up in New England and an uncle posthumously leaving a 35mm Pentax SLR camera along with a handful of lenses. “From there I began to experiment with polaroid and medium format film formats and always found the most inspiration in exploring natural and wild places, traveling internationally, and in meeting and interacting with diverse people along the way,” Gabe tells the Phoblographer in an email. “These travels and experiences, along with my love for cinema, have driven my work to what it is today wherein I seek to reflect on quiet moments of understanding, wonder, awe, and magic in our wild and diverse world.” Like most other film photographers, Gabe expresses that his love of analog photography is tied to his love of people.
