  • Lomography Day Trips: A Three-Day Bicycle Route Across Italy and Switzerland

    Lomography Day Trips: A Three-Day Bicycle Route Across Italy and Switzerland
    I live in the North of Italy, near the border with Switzerland.

  • A Salute to the Masters: The Girl with the Scarred Face (A Tribute to Juergen Teller)

    A Salute to the Masters: The Girl with the Scarred Face (A Tribute to Juergen Teller)
    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!

    A Salute to the Masters: The Sirius Space Mission to the Third Planet (A Tribute to Peter Mitchell)
    Imagine an alien space mission from a planet of the Sirius Star System to an abandoned industrial zone of Como, a city situated in the North of Italy. The alien photographer named sirio174, used a powerful futuristic camera, called Lomo Lubitel 166U loaded with a Kodak Portra film roll. Yes, no digital, because the future is...analogue!
