Wouldn't it be nice to watch a good film or two in one of these theaters?
Aside from photography and writing, film is one of the few things that I’m very interested in. That said, you’d probably understand now why French photographer *Franck Bohbot* ‘s “Cinema” has easily caught my attention. Bohbot, who focuses on urban landscapes and public spaces, has tracked down some of the most beautiful cinemas in California and taken photos of their interiors for this series. As one would see in the photos, the theaters themselves are a sight to behold, probably even more so than some of the movies being screened there! I don’t know much about architecture to make an actual criticism, but I can definitely say that these places are some of the most breathtaking ones I’ve seen – I wish I could visit them myself! Surely it would be a wonderful and memorable experience to watch a movie or a performance in any of these cinemas.
It makes me wonder, then – if you could watch any movie in one of these, what would it be?
It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet.

So, how do you make a beautiful series of photographs? It’s simple – merge two already beautiful subjects like women and flowers the way photographer Lara Kiosses did with this amazing series of multiple exposure photographs.

Inspiration comes to us in different ways, in various forms, sometimes in unexpected ways. I've always been interested in the workspaces, processes, and things that inspire artists around the world, so I really enjoyed watching the short documentary detailing the creative world of a Venetian artist called Zaira.
They're among the first things we see in a movie, yet they're also among the ones that we often overlook. For this week's dose of inspiration, we'll have a look at a number of lovely, elaborate movie titles from yesteryears.
Three months into the New Year, I can finally tick off the most crucial item in my analogue resolutions list for 2014. Yesterday afternoon, I finally got a “new” old SLR to replace my broken Minolta α-7700i from the good ol’ streets of Hidalgo in Quiapo – a Canon A-1.
While writing the latest installment of with my lighthouse-themed Beacons Beckoning series, I got curious about the lonely sentinels of the sea elsewhere in the world, captured by my fellow lomographers on film.
There are just days that you feel you’re colored black and blue. But somehow, you can still see beauty in the most unexpected moments. This series of photos from Silvia Grav silently communicates a tornado of kept emotions.
As film photographers, I'm sure you, too, have been asked why you still choose to shoot in this medium at least once - whether by a genuinely curious friend or family member, or a disbelieving acquaintance.
