Jason Lee Interview
JM: Why do you shoot film?
JL: Because I’m a photographer, and, to me, to be a photographer means to shoot film. I’ve never owned a digital imaging device and never will. To me, photography and digital image making are two completely different things. It’s a heated debate, I know, and I never want to be disrespectful or too indulgent in a said debate, but those are my feelings about it.
JM: Do you have a favorite camera and film stock?
JL: I love the old large format cameras that I’ve had for years. my Leica m6, too, and even point-and-shoot cameras, like the Olympus Xa or the Nikon 28ti; anything that uses film, really. Favorite film is probably Polaroid 804 (8×10); it’s just perfect to me; smooth and charcoal-like. Most of my conventional B&W film photos are reverse-processed (slides) by dr5. I have been using that process for 10 years now because I like what you do in-camera as the final result. And being that I shoot mainly for publication, versus darkroom printing, the dr5 photos are great for scanning. In this process, I love Rollei retro 80s, Rollei IR400, hp5 at EI 3200, and delta 100 at 50; depends on what I’m in the mood for I guess. I also really love the Agfa scale, which Dave at dr5 can process. I don’t shoot many colors but I do love shooting expired color neg films and pulling them, like portra 800.
JM: There seems to be a lot of synergies between the skateboarding world and the world of photography. Some of my favorite photographers were skateboarders and good photography seems to be a big part of skating – would you agree and how much of an impact has skating had on your photography?
JL: Artistic inclination is very common among skaters I think because skateboarding is itself a very creative world, from design to filmmaking, and the way one skate; it’s all creative. Music and imagery and filmmaking are all used alongside skateboarding, it’s amazing to see how different people express themselves. Because of skateboarding, its culture and the various personalities and influences that I’ve been exposed to, especially people like Mark Gonzales and Chris Pastras, I’ve been turned on to things that I probably otherwise wouldn’t have. Skateboarding and art go hand in hand.
JM: If you could only rescue one photobook from a house fire, which one would you rescue?
JL: ‘On Reading’ by Kertesz.
JM: With Fuji discontinuing film nearly every month but with the likes of new cameras from the Impossible project and film from Japan Camera Hunter – what are your thoughts on the current state of the film industry?
JL: It’s a bummer to see films being discontinued, but it’s alive enough to stay hopeful and productive. All of my large format polaroid films are now of course expired, but most of it is still useable and I plan on getting through it all for more publications over the next few years. The discontinuation of 3000b is a bummer but there’s still plenty of it out there and it’ll last quite a while. It’s very cool to see people and groups making new films or bringing back dead ones.
