Black & white film manufacturer ILFORD tells the stories of legendary photographer's Ray Barbee, Joe Brook and Jason Lee.

Ray Barbee’s film ‘A COMMON THREAD’ is about finding enjoyment in things that are challenging. This is a captivating insight into a humble yet remarkably talented skateboarder, musician and photographer who believes that all 3 passions are crafted by various factors outside of the artist’s control. From making prints in a darkroom to making music in a studio, Ray embraces the imperfections of analogue formats.

Discover the philosophies behind Jason’s signature aesthetic during a journey through rural Texas highway 380 to document the abandoned yet cinematic American landscape. A former Pro Skateboarder, Jason has established himself as a pillar of the film community making him better placed than most to identify the parallels between skateboarding and photography.

Joe Brook’s film ‘SKATEBOARDING IS OUR RELIGION’ is a pilgrimage to the epicentre of skateboarding, San Francisco, in Joe’s iconic van ‘Big Blue’. In this rare look behind the scenes we watch Joe capture skateboarders using various photographic techniques for his work at Thrasher Magazine.
