The capital of the Sena always had a romantic and intimate sense. Perhaps this is considered the city of love.
The capital of the Sena always had a romantic and intimate sense. Perhaps this is considered the city of love. In the 20’s and 30’s, the city showed its most bohemian side. The following pictures depict Paris at night, full of scenes and daily events, but captured in analogue black and white. This further enhanced the nostalgic atmosphere.
The lights and the shadows accompany figures of all kinds. From a lonely prostitute (we assume) waiting in a corner, to transexual parties of high society. Paris has always been a very progressive city. These images bear witness to so many different uses over time compared to other countries (Spain, without going any further, then under the dictatorship of Primo de Rivera). It was a time of freedom and liberalism, which sought to overcome the great war that occurred in Europe some years before. That liberalism and freedom was present in many of the leading intellectuals of the time. Thus, Hemingway, Picasso, Proust and many others, decided to establish their residence in this capital. Everything is shown from the optical analogue of the moment. Years pass, time passes, but the images always maintain that timeless essence as a witness.

Les Bleus may have been booted out of the World Cup by Germany, but for me France is always a winner. The number of places to go around Paris, especially, can never be exhausted: the Eiffel Tower, Sacré Cœur, the Seine, the Arc de Triomphe, and this time, I fell in love with the Cimetière du Père-Lachaise.

This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
Everything that can be considered a "classic" will always be relevant because good taste never goes out of style. This is very much the point with the New Russar+ lens from Lomography! http://shop.lomography.com

Kolkata, formerly known as Calcutta, was once the great capital of India back when the British ruled our country. This is my hometown, and not the place I study in. I enjoy photographing various urban scenes around it and this is a curated gallery of sorts introducing the old city for you wonderful people.
Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.
