Jack Kerouac fans have something to look forward to in this year’s Cannes Film Festival – the film adaptation of the novel ‘On the Road’. Read more details about the film after the break.
Jack Kerouac was a novelist known for being a pioneer in the Beat Generation. One of his most popular novels is ‘On the Road’, which was written in 1951 and published 6 years after. The film adaptation of this novel started the same year as the book’s release. However, plans fell through and the idea was shelved. In 1979, Francis Ford Coppola bought the rights for the adaptation. Over the years, several attempts were made to move forward with the feature but like before, the project never materialized. Upon watching ‘The Motorcycle Diaries’, Coppola hired Brazilian filmmaker Walter Salles to go on board as the director for the film.
‘On the Road’ tells the story of Sal Paradise, a young writer who goes on an adventure with his friend Dean Moriarty. Majority of the film is based on Jack Kerouac’s life on the road while he travelled on a cross-country trip with his friends in the 1940’s. The movie is one of the contenders for the Palme d’Or at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. View the film’s trailer below.

While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.

In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.
Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal.
