The old bridge, near Arezzo, which has fascinated the genius of Leonardo da Vinci! We discover its history ..
The Arno is a river in the Tuscany region of Italy. It is one of the most important rivers of central Italy and has a total length of 241km.
Before the Second World War, many bridges were built across the river, but the war brought very strong damage to communications infrastructure. Almost all bridges over the Arno were destroyed by bombing. Only three bridges were saved throughout the course of the Arno, one is Ponte Buriano!
History suggests the construction of the bridge in 1277. It is a low bridge, multi-arched Romanesque, and over his arches switches the ancient Via Cassia. The long life of the bridge was not easy (700 years!). Often, in fact, has had to resort to care, restoration and reinforcement. Leonardo studied the famous bridge for the restoration!
In this hot summer, the Arno decreased water has allowed me to pass over this beautiful bridge. This strange land was lovely. I can hardly see it again.
A little fact: many scholars believe that Leonardo on the right side of the background of the “Gioconda” has painted Ponte Buriano.
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
In photography, we notice the surface first. The color and texture of things help us imagine what’s beneath. Doors, part of a building’s skin, have this appeal. They suggest how long a structure has been around and what sort of fellows live inside. They are details that fascinate Lomographers, judging from the many LC-A 120 snaps of intriguing entrances.
In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
Nearly 30 years ago, producer Stefano Amoretti and photographer Mino Tristovskij discovered a box containing the complete works of Italian criminologist and forensic photographer Luigi Tomellini. Soon, the world will get to see Tomellini's works in one comprehensive catalogue.
The touristic appeal of Japan lies not only in its castles and flower storms, but also in the mix of unique practices and Occidental influences.

A port city, Osaka has retained its 'merchant' status with a battery of retail shops amid an area of cultural interest.

It's tempting to form conspiracy theories about the strange effects of Revolog. Are they a result of chemical genius or imbalance? Is every film pre-exposed before being shipped to experimental photographers? Some Lomographers seem to have cracked the code, teasing out Revolog's foggy and thunderous quirks.

Children, ever curious and with an innate sense of wonder, ask a lot of questions. Often they're easy enough to answer, but sometimes there are those that leave the adults stumped and mulling over them. The history of the instant camera as we know it began with one such question.
