In South Africa we don’t really celebrate Thanksgiving, but this year my friends and I decided we would. So it was a bit untraditional but rather marvellous.
When we decided to have our own Thanksgiving we had to sit down and decide what makes up a Thanksgiving celebration. Well, we came up with a list of good food, great atmosphere and of course, the people we love and are thankful for. We did not do the traditional dinner but rather, because of our beautiful summer weather we started our Thanksgiving at 3 in the afternoon. Blankets were spread over the lawn in my garden with lots of pillows and party hats!
We did a big braai with lots of meat, salads, potatoes and of course home-made cupcakes for dessert – most delicious. Everyone brought their costumes and as the weather cooperated so well, most of us were either braai-ing, taking photos, lying on the blankets with a glass of wine or in the swimming pool with the dogs. For extra entertainment we decided to get a piñata filled with all sorts of goodies that we all liked and luckily the person who broke it was kind enough to share the loot with everyone! Even the animals participated in the eating that is – there was lots of sharing going around!
We all lay outside until the stars were out and the sweets were gone and decided this would not be our last Thanksgiving but rather the first of many!
What makes a movie interesting? Today, answers would vary depending on the individual—the story, cinematography, film score, production design, and so on. But in the early years of cinema, movement was all it took to captivate the audience.
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
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. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
I recently found a roll of XR Redscale 50-200 film lying around in my drawer and decided to reignite my passion for embracing the weird and unexpected results that film can bring. I shot random doubles around the streets of Soho and was rather delighted with the results.
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.

We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. Here's how I revived my Instamatic cameras.
I was really excited when I got to test the Lomo'Instant Wide recently. Nine packs of film and and one week later I can say: "This camera works really well and I am looking forward to my own Portobello Road Edition!"

When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
