If you ever go to Madrid try to discover what the Torres Kio look like. Maybe there are better places in Madrid to visit but this place is quite important to me as every time I have to be in Madrid for work I stay in one of the hotels near that place.
Plaza castilla is placed on the north part of Madrid and it’s one of the squares that divide Paseo de la Castellana. There are many attractions there: two of the main business buildings of the Spanish Capital are placed there. Two inverses twins that used to be the skyline of Madrid. Now other 4 great skyscrapers are near, where the Real Madrid sport city was once placed.
The reason why they became famous is that they look like the devils horns. The buildings are not straight, they are built with a 15% of inclination. But they are not the only interesting place in that square. The main Subway station now in Madrid is also placed there ( El Intercambiador). The station where all the lines and buses join.
The new obelisc is designed by Santiago Calatrava (one of the most famous architects in the world). It will have (as by now it’s not finished) 92 meters high. Also near is the Canal Isabel II park, a very good cultural exhibition center. For example now there’s a retrospective of photography made by Rodchenko. Really nice to visit if you are near the city during these days. Rodchenko changed the perspectives in the 20’s. The water tank is still there in order to keep the history alive.
What's so great about analog photography? You never know what you will get in the end. Not every film let all of my photos look perfect, some fail, too. Maybe some of you experienced the same. After trying out several film soups and chemicals I finally discovered the easiest and quickest way: chlorine!

In the last decade she has spent in the USA, Maliha has stayed at six different cities in five different states. Currently, Maliha is based in Denver, Colorado, and "Transient Living," a new series in the Lomography magazine, documents her experiences and the ways that she has come to call this city her home.</i>
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
Ever since she started working late hours Tammy had inevitably acquired the habit of staying up into the wee hours of the night, doing nothing but catch up on her favorite websites, eat, and watch television. When nothing good’s on TV or in the Internet, however, she liked to hang out at her room’s balcony, sneakily smoking a cigarette or two while musing about all sorts of things.
Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
