Valencia - Spain

3

Valencia an intoxicating mix Spanish Art & Architecture.

Valencia is the third largest city in Spain and the 21st largest in the European Union. It forms part of an industrial area on the Costa del Azahar. Valencia is well known for its Architecture, Squares and gardens. One of the most impressive sites is The Hemispheric at the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències (Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias) by Santiago Calatrava. It’s an amazing piece of modern architecture, simply stunning – has a very futuristic feel to it.

Valencia has a very changeable climate, with hot dry summers, mild humid winters and stormy autumns and springs. The city is easy to access on foot and you can lose yourself wandering about its small twisting streets. The food is glorious and good dining is easy to find. I enjoyed very much the traditional tapas food on offer, the local beer tastes mighty fine and I wish I could remember the name of it!

A great place to see and explore and you will need plenty of film to make many many lomo images!

    In Retrospect: Oscar de la Renta's Timeless Designs

    The fashion industry mourns the loss of iconic designer Oscar de la Renta, who died on October 20 at 82 years old from complications due to cancer. From being an art student in Madrid, an apprentice for renowned Spanish couturier Cristobal Balenciaga to designing for Lanvin and Balmain, eventually launching his own fashion label and dressing up some of the world's most famous and beautiful women, de la Renta's legacy echoes through his timeless, feminine, and elegant designs.

    A Salute to the Masters: Paestum (A Tribute to Serge Moulinier)

    This article is dedicated to Serge Moulinier, a largely unknown French photographer who won one of the most important prizes in France with a book on Greek architecture. Strangely, little information can be found on the Internet about this great photographer whose work had also been published in an important essay written by the famous John Szarkowski, former Director of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

An 1856 print by an anonymous photographer is in the same group as a top-valued Joseph Szabo shot. A deceptively simple shot of a flower vase is joined by the complex textures of Lucien Hervé. Take a look at the fascinating mix.
