July 22nd marks the 147th Anniversary of the historic Civil War Battle of Atlanta. To commemorate the important event, the neighborhoods in Atlanta’s 5th Council District have teamed up to organize B*ATL in the weekend of July 12th-17th. The battlefield is actually in these neighborhoods where people live and work and play today.
I decided to take my cameras to the event to document some of these fascinating reenactments. We went to the encampment where they held “real” battle scenes and lectures on the medical technology of the Civil War, cemetery tours, canon shots, and general life on the battlefield. People in the south continue to celebrate this specific period of history by collecting actual artifacts, reenacting actual battles, and getting all dressed up in uniforms true to the period. It’s a very strange thing to watch yet fascinating because there’s a great deal of history involved.
The following are a few pictures from this odd and educational subculture:
My friends and I teamed up with Photo Art Pro to spread analog love to the Zaporozhye community. Last month, we hosted a Yeti Scavenger Hunt and had a LomoKino camera as prize. We challenged participants to shoot a roll of film based on a checklist. It was tremendous fun!
Diana F+ is something of a wild child. It loves outré looks, multiple exposures and outlandish colors. But loaded with the right 120 film, it can show a mellow side that favors rule-of-thirds perfection and subdued coloring.

In 1968, Elliott Landy went around town to photograph the glamor set, including the likes of Faye Dunaway, Marlene Dietrich and Lauren Bacall. His black and white shots are now part of a limited-edition book.
Having first discovered light painting by chance, Jason D. Page is now recognized as a leader in the field. He has pioneered multiple light paintings techniques and his work has been featured in many exhibitions and galleries worldwide. He's a passionate, creative artist and the founder of both Light Painting Brushes and LightPaintingPhotography.com — a website dedicated to everything surrounding light painting!
Soon, a school more than a century old in Switzerland will be closing its doors and transformed to house offices. Taking on the important task of documenting its hallowed halls is srcardoso, who made use of film as a way of honoring it.
