Instead of waiting in line to visit museums and monuments, I suggest you visit the open air museum of street art just by wandering in Granada.
Since the very first moment I arrived, Granada became one of my favorite cities. Of course I had to visit Alhambra (wake up at 5 am and wait in line for hours while raining) but I must confess I had a better time just wandering around the city. The Albaicin quarter is amazing and it seems that everywhere you go there is art on the walls!
Back home and after having my article Street art at Granada about the work of the artist El niño de las Pinturas published I went through my archive and found out more great graffiti I shoot in Granada. Some I can recognize as from “El Niño de las Pinturas” and other are anonymous work so I separated them in two galleries.
I know that this is only a tiny sample of great things Granada has to offer but graffiti is one of my favorite subjects, specially when holding a LC-A in my hands!
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!

One lomographer bathes the fantastical world of Harry Potter and the dreamy streets of Osaka lined with cherry blossom trees in lush turquoise and amber tones, making these unique scenes look just a little more magical!

I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.
