I’d assume that as lovers of analogue photography, we all share the same obsession for prints. Maybe those into the digital grind feel the opposite with images and music. They’d rather buy it online than spend for disks. Thanks to Radiohead for proving them wrong.
Radiohead’s latest album The King of Limbs is packaged so beautifully that I’d compare it to meeting an old friend personally instead of chatting online. It’s designed by Stanley Donwood using the treatment of a Sunday broadsheet.
From the black and white illustrations to the clever use of typography, I gasp for joy every time I see this. It engages all the senses like a ritual. Maybe experiencing this is like drinking tea—first flip is joy, the second is gladness, the third is serenity, the fourth is madness, the fifth is ecstasy.
Match that with the scent of freshly inked paper—oh it’s pure bliss!
Forgive my poeticizing, but it is with pleasure that I admit my adoration for beautiful things that my hand can hold.
Architectural photographer Christopher Payne documents America’s industrial heritage with his large format images. For his project "Asylum," he visited 70 abandoned psychiatric hospitals across to country between 2002 and 2008.

We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
After a fully booked 2015, photographer Chloé Vollmer-Lo found time to test the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens. She brought it to the Natural History Museum and the Paris business district, an endeavor that resulted in quite a few stunning, bokeh-rich images.
You want your subject be the center of attention? Petzval lens photos are recognizable for sharpness and crispness in the centre, strong color saturation, wonderful swirly bokeh effect, artful vignettes and narrow depth of field that will make your subjects stand out!
