Bottega is a restaurant located next to Christianshavns Torv in Copenhagen which serves Southern Italian food. Apart from the restaurant at Christianshavn a branch has opened in Charlottenlund north of Copenhagen, and they have taken over the old newspaper kiosk at Christianshavs Torv which is now an Italian coffee bar with snacks and drinks in the summer evenings.
The reason I had to write a location on Bottega is that they make the best pizza I’ve ever had outside of Italy. In fact they are so good that I walk or ride my bike the five kilometres, passing more than 30 pizzarias on the way, every time I go to buy pizza – I don’t want anything else. The pizzas are deliciously thin in a Naepolitan spirit with great toppings made from the best produce. Here you cannot choose the topping of your pizza or leave out something. The pizzas are served as the chefs decide, and that’s that.
Apart from pizzas Bottega has a menu like a traditional Southern Italian trattoria. The dishes are quite cheap and the service is top notch. You can eat at the restaurant or order to go. If you do the latter the dishes are typically 40-50 DKR (6€) cheaper, and if the weather is good I would recommend going down to the canals and eating on the quayside watching the boats sailing by.
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.
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!
A road trip is a celebration of little freedoms. It’s a chance to break out of a rut and to be a little unruly. All the mischief may be off limits to the camera, so the things we do photograph need to serve our memory well: They must convey the relief, fun and color of our secret sprees.
Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!
Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.

As a child, she would ask her peers to pose for her and photograph them using her mother's camera. That early fascination with cameras has evolved into a lifelong passion. At 25, Mandi K. Smith, the kid from Southern California who spent all her money on film, is now a full-fledged photographer.
Alternative folk act Bear's Den is set to embark on a UK tour to promote the album "Islands," which was released in October 2014. But before going on tour, the British trio, composed of Andrew Davie (vocals, guitar), Kevin Jones (vocals, drums) and Joey Haynes (vocals, banjo), captured some of their summer memories on film with the Sprocket Rocket.
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.
