I´m from Tenerife. Canary Islands, Spain. And I would like to share a special place on this island.
There is a special place in Tenerife and I would like to share it with you. It is the graveyard of San Andrés.
San Andrés is a village located on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands (Spain). It is located 10 km north of the capital city Santa Cruz de Tenerife, in a coastal area by the Anaga Mountains. The village is situated on a mountain slope with an urban area located near the valley and the beach (Las Teresitas). San Andrés is one of the oldest villages of the Canary Islands, and was founded around 1497.
Las Teresitas has a big secret. If you go to this beach you will find one of the oldest cemeteries of the island, and It’s very magical. The cemetery is abandoned and no longer a place to bury anyone. Many tombstones are broken. But to be next to the beach does not seem so gloomy. There are also many baby cribs. This cemetery has a special story. U2 were there!
In February 1991 they were in Tenerife for the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. They came to take some promotional photos for his LP “ACHTUNGBABY”. If you have the LP you will see many photos taken at night of Carnival. They knew the cemetery too.
Do you have the LP? Look carefully the photos! Perhaps you’d seen.

This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

My dad and I have been riding our bicycles for as long as I can remember. We had no camera back then, so I only have the pictures from our recent rides. Each ride to the island of Khortitsa today is like a reunion with my childhood and my father's care.

For many years, Kenny had already been purchasing film and accessories from the Online Shop before he noticed our bustling community. Looking for a place to connect with people who share his passion for shooting on film, he immediately created a LomoHome and started sharing his stunning collection of street photographs.
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
In this article I’m going to review the LomoKino's key features, show you how to load the film, and share some tips on shooting and editing a movie. I will also show you a short stop motion movie that I made with this camera.
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.
Last year I took part in Photographia, a project that encouraged the use of cameras from the volt of Museu da Imagem em Movimento (M|i|mo). The gear collection used to belong to a well-known Portuguese TV channel (RTP) and some professional photographers. The cameras hadn’t been used since they were donated to the museum—until the launch of Photographia.
