About the Author
Levi Bettwieser is a Boise, Idaho-based film photographer and video producer.
Bettwieser lost interest in conventional digital photography because he felt it no longer challenged him creatively. So he decided to pursue film photography and processing. His camera platform is comprised of over 14 small-, medium-, and large-format vintage film cameras that date back to the 1940s. His experience with film photography and processing is what led him to found The Rescued Film Project.
The Rescued Film Project is an archive of images that were captured on film between the 1930s and early 2000s. Each image in the archive was rescued from film found in locations all over the world, and appeared in the form of undeveloped rolls of film. The Rescued Film Project has the capability to process film from all eras, even film that has been degraded by heat, moisture, and age or is no longer manufactured.
