Man belongs to nature. Nature makes part of our nature. Inspirational nature gives me the true feeling of freedom. Freedom is naturally a man’s need. So, nature has a strong relation with freedom.
Sometimes, the burden of civilization can be overwhelming, making me want to run away from everything. Every time that this happens, I find my inner peace when in touch with nature. It provides me a sense of satisfaction and a better mood. Nature allows me to feel free, breaking the chains of society. Nature gives a different expression to my senses. When breathing pure air, when listen forest cracking, when looking at the angry sea, when tasting the morning dew or when touching a warm stone, my body and soul feel the instinctive link between both, man and nature.
Nature takes us to different realities, the perfect world like nature itself. It is essential to the physical, psychological and consequently social well-being of the human animal.
“Man makes part of nature. He needs nature to survive and be healthy. Nature influences human behaviour, gives man more than just a relaxed and calm feeling: a connection with our big existence.”
Several studies, concerning Nature and its role in human being balance, explain why we feel in harmony with our mind and body when in contact with true natural world. It recharges our energies making us feel stronger, invincible and part of a superior thing: nature. It gives a meaning to our life. This is the nature of man.
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.

Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.
Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.

If formal training alone is not enough to make great art, then being in a room full of like-minded people might be another form of encouragement. To see fellow artists labor over the tiniest detail, to feel the depth of their ambition, to be part of this silent energy—these are priceless perks. The following photographs of University of Art and Design from the 1920s let us sit in on some of these busy classes.
