I love my city, but sometimes it is nice to pull the plug and travel to the far ends of the Swedish woods. Here, there is no cellphone connection, no WiFi, and no running water. It is one of my favorite places.
My boyfriend’s parents have a little red house near the “Lacksjö” lake in the forest near Mullsjö, Sweden. This July we went up there to paint the house, build a new jetty, relax, and be one with Mother Nature.
I brought with me my AGFA Synchro Box. I decided to put a Fomapan B&W film in it and take photos of the lake. It was so quiet and the reflection was amazing.
But I did not expect that three of the guys would come down to the lake to take a quick (skinny) dip. Lucky me. :)
As the only chance of getting your meats roasted, you need to build a campfire. Luckily the boys were pretty good at this and as they sat there by the fire, I had to take a picture of them. To be sure I got it right, I took two shots and I really like the feel of the pictures. It looks like something taken in the 1920s except from the beer cans and the All Star shoes. :)
For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.
This article is dedicated to the Italian street photographer and portraitist Ugo Mulas who masterfully documented the miniature circus of the great sculptor Alexander Calder. To write this tribute I documented a recent Christmas event in my city Como, a wonderful exhibition of vintage toys in a forest of snow-covered pines. Take a look!
He calls himself Khalik Allah – a creator, a limitless, timeless, infinite being. He documents life as it comes and goes, as it hurts, as it glows inside the protagonists of his stories. His photography and videography take us deep into the never-ending nights of Harlem, a place where the darkness might seem to reach its peak. Yet, he is capturing light in its purest form, reminding us that it lies in everyone’s eyes, within everyone’s self.

She has written novels on identity, loss and longing. He has traveled far and wide to photograph people for whom 'home' is a complex story. On February 18, 2016, Nicole Krauss and Frédéric Brenner join to discuss themes in photography and fiction at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
This article is dedicated to the British photojournalist and sport photographer Dennis Oulds, and to one of my favorite home games, Subbuteo Table Football. Here are some photos I took during a local tournament in Como. Take a look!
Why is it that women traveling alone are always confronted with the same questions and attitude? This is a tribute - in images and words - to women traveling the world. In memory of the Argentinian backpackers Marina Menegazzo and María José Coni.
It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
