Life and Death

2

The stillness of an old cemetery is a good place to practice - slowly and surely with a Lubitel 2 camera.

Back in ye olde Victorian days a cemetery was built in Southampton (England).

Today it may look ramshackled and overgrown but it’s managed carefully to maintain it’s character and rich wildlife – apparently there are deer in here somewhere.

There are sweet little chapels with beautiful doors.

There are enveloping willows offering very peaceful resting places.

And all sorts of plantlife to discover in hidden nooks and crannies.

With some cameras you need to take things slowly – the Lubitel is one of those cameras and this is the perfect place to slow your pace and contemplate each shot.

The Lubitel 2 is an attention-seeker—from its top-down viewer, down to its stylish, black, metal body. Its signature Triplet T22 lens yields charming and distinctive medium format shots. Get your own Lubitel 2 now!

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

    Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.

    Janne Parviainen: Light Magician

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."

    'Aniki-Bòbò': A Tribute to Manoel De Oliveira

    This article is a tribute to the great Portuguese film director Manoel de Oliveira, who died last April 2. With an old Praktica loaded with a roll of black and white film, I captured so enthusiastically his city Oporto (Porto) with its famous Ribeira district, the most characteristic of the Lusitanian town. It was here that more than 70 years ago, Manoel De Oliveira created a timeless masterpiece: "Aniki-Bòbò"!
