This year our high school sports writers picked The Oklahoman’s 100th All-State football team and asked me if I could do something to make it look a little “old school.” I happily agreed, deciding to use film for the project.
I took the pictures with a Fuji GF670 medium format camera set to make 6×6 cm square negatives (it can also do 6x7cm) and used Ilford HP5 black & white film.
I chose the square format because of my many discussion with Tulsa World photographer Mike Simons about Instagram. He likes to call square photos taken on film Eventualgrams. I love that term.
So, here are some Eventualgrams of The Oklahoman’s 100th All-State football team with the real film borders and all. You can see pictures of the entire team in this photo gallery.
