Film Photography

It’s literally film photography as in photographing famous films. More accurately photographing objects from famous films. Jordan Bolton curates almost a museum like collection of objects from movies like Grand Budapest Hotel, Her, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and The Royal Tenenbaums.
