One of the unsung heroes in travel photography is the film used. During my last trip to Fête des Tuileries on Rue de Rivoli, central Paris, I was able to use Fujufilm Velvia 50 and the results blew me away! Check out the photos after the jump.
I’ve found that I always take my best Lomo photos when i feel like a kid again, and fairgrounds bring that out of me in every sense; the colours, the noises, the lights. Quite simply, fairs are a dream for Lomographers far and wide! Take this scene and coat it in a Fujufilm Velvia 50 lacquer and you’ve got a winner on your hands! This was my first time using this film, and the results of cross processing it absolutely blew my mind!! I don’t think I need to say any more.. the photos say more than I can try to! However, I hope they inspire somebody to rush out and do the same.
This is a tribute to one of the most famous French social and street photographers, Robert Doisneau. During his life he was able to capture many little moments of everyday Parisian life with humanity and grace. His photos, full of poetry and humor, tell the ordinary life in the suburbs of the big French capital, away from the richest central areas of the city. Read more after the jump!
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!

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
