Marie Dault

While photographing the Postman for the Biennial the other week I heard the sound of an old super 8 camera in the background. I turned round to see a woman filming the event. I thought she was a member of the production team filming it in an “arty” way. It turns out she wasn’t. Marie Dault was simply on holiday from Paris. She was a film user and processed her own film at one of the few remaining labs in Paris. I was blown away by the fact that she was filming using a super 8 camera. We chatted about cameras and film before she asked for directions to the Open Eye Gallery.
