    In 1966, American artist Dan Graham published an article about typical one-family homes in ordinary American suburbs built after World War II.

    A Salute to the Masters: The New Suburbs (A Tribute to Robert Adams)

    In this article, I'll show you some images taken in the suburbs of my city showing the man-altered landscape of a highly populated region in the north of Italy. In these photos I'll show the territory changed by man in every mode, where the human figure does not appear as the main subject.

    US CitySlicker Nicolas: Hercules the Dynamic City by the Bay

    Being a part of the Lomography San Francisco team, I’m in the city almost all the time. I love going around places like the Embarcadero and the Mission for photo walks, but this time around, I wanted to show my fellow Lomographers what I call home in the town of Hercules, California.

    Embrace Your Suburb

    You may think that cool pictures can only be taken in cool places. But that boring suburb where you spend most of your time can be pretty photogenic as well. You just have to open your eyes to it.
