In your bag number 56, Arad Hosseini
Hello there bag lovers. How are you all? Do you have a New Years resolution? Mine is to feature more and more bags for you all. And here is another one, the completely fantastic bag from Arad in Stockholm. Take it away Arad:
This is my contribution for your “In your bag”-series. I’m not sure if you’ve someone from Sweden yet? Hope you’ll consider my entry.
So, here are a few things about me:
My name is Arad Hosseini. I’m 20 years old, living in Stockholm, and been photographing as a hobby for a little over 2 years. I actually got into film photography just a few months ago, and been in love with it ever since. I usually don’t shoot according to a specific style, e.g street photography or such, but one thing I do is take a photo everyday for my 365 Project (currently on day 278!). It’s been an amazing experience so far, and I’ve managed to pick up a few yummy film cameras on the way. Let’s talk about the picture!
– My Hasselblad 503CW. Without doubt my favorite camera. Gotta love medium format!
– A Sekonic light meter I use with the Hassy
– 120 film – gotta have back up! Daylight in Sweden during winter months is usually no more than four hours, that’s why I usually walk around with 400 and higher ISO film. Favorite film is probably the Portra 800, but tried black & white photography with Tri-X a couple of weeks ago and absolutely love the results
– My cap that prevents my ears from freezing and falling off
– A notebook I use to jot down ideas and photo-details with the inscription “Item for hope”
– A box filled with awesome exploration cards. It’s called “A travel guide” and contains instructions that are perfect when exploring new cities (or your own!)
– The book I’m currently reading, “Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman” by Haruki Murakami. Yes, I’m a Murakami fan!
Thanks for reading about the stuff that’s in my bag when I’m out shooting!
Cheers and Merry Christmas!

Nice to see some new film converts :)
I love seeing young people trying out film cameras. It makes me all warm and fuzzy inside. :)
I am also a Haruki Murakami fan. Thanks for sharing. I really need to do this bag thingy. I have SO much gear!
Bring it on, you would be more than welcome:)
Oh hell yes!!!!!!!!!! Finally someone who is also almost the same age as me (btw I’m 18) that reads Haruki Murakami!!!! and I shot film (though just starting to). Anyway just wanted to express my joy of finding someone who reads Haruki Murakami.
i’m interested in those cards. do you have a link where we can find them? also what kind of bag is that?
