Recently published in an interesting book containing a vast collection of images of shops and establishments in New York. What's really surprising is that during the eight years of this project, over one third of establishments photographed have disappeared. Meet some of these images.
James and Karla Murray spent eight years photographing the most genuine and authentic store fronts of the city. These places are always shown through (analog in 35mm) images that seek to communicate the essence of such businesses. The book is divided into five parts (one per district), in which the images are accompanied by short stories and maps of the area. No doubt, a highly recommended book for those nostalgic for the classic shops. Those businesses that allowed in the same block, had space for all kinds of needs: clothing, jewelry, sport, and food. Everything in the neighborhood. The book will also please fans of the Big Apple, being a chronicle of urban and commercial neighborhood small businesses.

Kevin Meredith, more popularly known as LomoKev, is a photographer based in Brighton, England who gained notoriety for his use of the Lomo LC-A and his lomographic style of creating images. Aside from a plethora of personal and commercial projects, he has also conducted workshops on photography, written and published photography-related books, and participated in a few exhibits. With his evident passion for photography, it comes as no surprise that he was selected to test a prototype of the New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens.
Berenice Abbott documented the sped-up pulse, concrete towers, and busy crowds of New York. These black and white images, as well as her pioneering work in science photography, appear in a thicker reissue of a classic Aperture book.
Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.

As a scientist, Pierrick is often curious about the mechanism behind how things work. His first brush with analog photography is no exception. Eager to know more about the inner workings of a film camera, he started from scratch and tested his DIY skill with the Konstuktor camera.
On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
