This resort is a complex of vintage retro futuristic houses. This place really fits the spirit of analogue lifestyle. It’s a forgotten paradise for Lomographers
If you’ve never been to the famous Sanzhi UFO houses, there’s another resort which may cure your regret. The resort is in the north coast too, located inside Howard Hotel in Wanli Township, about an hour and a half from Sanzhi. Just like Sanzhi UFO houses, it’s abandoned too.
The resort is a complex of vintage retro futuristic houses. There are some Futuro houses just like what Finnish architect, Matti Suuronen, designed back in 1968. Made of plastic and polyester in flying saucer like shapes and airplane hatch entrances.

Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl.

Some lomographers prefer to hoard as many analog cameras their shelves and budgets can support. Some would rather keep a manageable number that they can regularly shoot with. Community member Joshua Kennedy belongs to the latter group. From 40 cameras, he downsized his collection to 13, as he puts it, "really good ones" that suit his shooting habits and style. In this interview, he breaks down his small yet dependable arsenal of vintage and handmade cameras and how an organized schedule allows him to shoot with each one on a regular basis.
Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.
