Af en toe heb ik er behoefte aan om even tot rust te komen in de natuur. De ideale plek voor mij is Papago Park in Phoenix.
Vlakbij de drukke metropool Phoenix bevindt zich Papago Park. Dit prachtige woestijnpark is de thuisbasis voor de de botanische tuin en Phoenix Zoo. Doordat het park zo dicht bij de stad ligt, zou je verwachten dat het er bedrukt en overvol zou aanvoelen, maar vreemd genoeg is het er verbazend kalm en rustig.
Je kan het park in al zijn schoonheid verkennen langs de vele wandel- en fietspaden. Vooral bij mooi weer zijn de kleuren in het park overweldigend en komen de rode rotsen helemaal tot hun recht. In de verte kan je de piramidevormige tombe van George W.P. Hunt zien glinsteren.
Vlakbij het park ligt Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. De vele vliegtuigen die er aankomen en vertrekken vullen de lucht met hun kleurrijke strepen.
In deze jachtige tijden is stress onvermijdelijk. Papago Park is voor mij de ideale plaats om even tot rust te komen.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
Simeon Smith is a musician who recorded the sounds of our film cameras in action and made these samples available as a free download. We couldn't resist interviewing him about this project and taking a look at some of his photos. Meet the man behind the cams here.
Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
