In commemoration of the 50th death anniversary of Jean Cocteau, his digitally restored 1946 film La Belle et La Bete (Beauty and the Beast) will also have a dedicated evening screening. The French poet, playwright, and filmmaker was also the Chairman of the Festival de Cannes Jury during the 1950s. Following the film is a 2013 musical comedy by Arielle Dombasle entitled Opium, which looks back at the loves of Raymond Radiguet and Jean Cocteau during the early 1920s.

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. Take a look after the jump!

Recently, I used my trusty Fuji Silvi. It may not be my all-time favorite camera, but I just wanted to use it because I kind of missed shooting with it. So I decided to look through my film stash to see what I could use with the Fuji Silvi. After much consideration, I ended up picking the old Agfa CT Precisa ISO 100 to get that classic blue tone. Silvia Precisa!
There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.
