Browsing through this month's copy of a UK fashion and lifestyle glossy, an item in one of the shopping articles caught my eye. Read on after the jump to find out why.
Glamour is a fashion magazine aimed at young working women and usually has a whole host of features dedicated to shopping. This month’s edition is no exception and at the end of the magazine, there is a spread, over a number of pages dedicated to retro-style shopping for a weekend away somewhere nice in the UK this summer. On one of the pages is a piece about Harrogate in North Yorkshire and on that page is a list of things you could buy for such an adventure. There in the bottom corner is the Diana F+ Dreamer edition available at Urban Outfitters which is a gorgeous mint green color. Incidentally on the previous page’s shopping list there is also a really cute camera bag from Urban Outfitters, which is made out of crochet.
On a totally separate note, at the back of the magazine there is also a photo of a girl holding a beautiful Leica. I am not sure if this is an analogue or a digital camera but doesn’t it look beautiful?

In 1966, American artist Dan Graham published an article about typical one-family homes in ordinary American suburbs built after World War II. He used a cheap Kodak Instamatic camera, with a deliberately amateur approach. In this article, I wrote a tribute to him with a series of photos taken in the suburbs of my city, Como, using my pretty Diana Mini camera. Read more after the jump!

Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
