  • The Pinhegg – My Journey To Build An Egg Pinhole Camera

    The Pinhegg – My Journey To Build An Egg Pinhole Camera

    Since I started pin-holing the world, I have had the strong desire to make a special camera, with the purpose of shooting just one photograph. The purpose was to sacrifice the camera in the process of photo creation – I wanted the camera to become the photograph. To let you understand, the process from the camera to the photograph is the same that ties the baby bird to the egg: the bird grows protected from the shell and when it's ready breaks it and comes out. This is why I decided to create the Pinhegg – An Egg Pinhole Camera.

  • How I Let Loose with Lomography

    How I Let Loose with Lomography

    Truth be told, I have always been the kind of person to keep count of everything. You know, the OCD type.

This all changed in February 2010, the day I met Lomography.

  • B&W Darkroom Paper Bible

    B&W Darkroom Paper Bible

    It's time to go all the way. Your digital camera has been on the shelf for months, entombed in dust. When it comes to loading your film camera, you're like a well-trained photographic assassin loading your sniper rifle. Your bathroom has a lingering odor that can't quite be identified by your friends, but that smell of fixer during your morning shower is like your first cup of coffee: necessary and refreshing. You're a film nut and you're proud of it. But once those negatives have dried, you're again stuck behind a screen while you scan and tone your images. It's time for that to change, and the first step in moving toward a full darkroom is understanding photographic paper.

    Influential Photographs: Loan Executing Lem, 1968 by Eddie Adams

    It’s like a still from a guerilla movie, but no, this photograph of a man slaying another man is authentic. Bold and brutal. Cold and condescending. War, even only seen in photographs, is indeed inhuman.
