Huis Marseille pays tribute to analogue photography by dedicating an exhibition to the character and work of master printer Peter Svenson of Aap-Lab.
Even if we are living in a digital world built on convenience, there are certain facets that require a more analogue, hands-on approach. Case in point is Huis Marseille's current exhibit, Digital? Analogue! which pays tribute to the brilliance of master printer Peter Svenson of Aap-Lab. While more and more people are turning digital, its those who matter and know the craft most that are coming back to the analogue fold.
Although the computer offers unlimited possibilities for the perfection of a photograph, many photographers prefer instead to seek the limits of the medium. Within that process Peter Svenson can be a crucial link. He interprets the image in his own way, and the resulting dialogue with the photographer almost always leads to an authentic, transparent and complex image.
This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
William Eggleston is one of the most important contemporary master and pioneer of color photography. In this article I write a tribute to his particular democratic way of looking around. For him "Nothing was more important or less important", and everything is worthy of being photographed. Again, he is fond of the dear old film; he said that "I don't think much about the digital world, because I am in the analog world!". Read more after the jump!
This article is a tribute to a great Italian poet, painter and photographer, Mario Giacomelli (1925-2000). His images are characterized by a strong graphic contrast and are related to suffering and decay in our world. In this article I pay tribute to his photographic series taken at the Sanctuary of Lourdes in France. Read more after the jump!
This is a tribute to a founding father of photography, the American photographer Paul Strand. In 1955, he released a book about Luzzara, a small town in central Italy, in collaboration with the famous neo-realist screenwriter Cesare Zavattini. To pay homage to this great artist, this summer I personally went to Luzzara to take a series of photos that shows the changes in this little town 60 years after the work of Strand was published.
At this day and age, it's always a delight to know that analogue photography is still very much alive and well. In London, Labyrinth Photographic Printing celebrates this art by holding an annual exhibition of film photographs by various photographers.
Celebrated artist Pablo Picasso had his brush with photography when he was still alive, both in front of the camera and behind it. Find out the details of an ongoing exhibit featuring his photographic work after the jump.
The French photographer Bruno Barbey took a series of photos in Southern Italy in the '60s, many of these in the city of Naples. In this tribute to a great master of social and street photography, I'll show you a series of photos that I took in the islands of Ischia and Procida located a few kilometers from this wonderful city.

This is a tribute to Juergen Teller, a great fashion photographer who continues to work with analogue cameras. In the 1990s he radically changed the way to make fashion photography. His models appear "soap and water", without heavy make-up, and his images seem taken like an amateur photographer. Between his nice works, there is a photos that I like so much, taken in Cuba and called "The Girl with the Broken Nose." Take a look after the jump!
