My Analogue Days: Exploring The Neighborhood

2013-03-23

I’ve lived in this neighborhood for almost a year now and I still find so many wonderful new details every time I go for a walk with my camera.

Home is where we return to everyday. We walk the same streets, turn the same curves, hear the same traffic every single day. We believe we know all the details of the place we live in. We might even believe that there is nothing interesting in the details to know, really. It’s the same things day after day; rinse and repeat.

I used to think that repetition is boring until I picked up film photography.

Your eyes start to open and so does your heart. Somewhere as monotonous as your neighborhood can become a playground of discovery. Your neighbor’s favorite flowers or the time of day the old lady likes to come out and sit on her dusty, rattan chair. The shadows on your neighbor’s windows as the sun sets or the number of stray cats that live in the small alleyways. There are so many things to discover if you walk a little slower with your camera in hand.

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    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.

    Five Days, Four Kinds of Film and Three Cameras on the French Riviera

    It had been five years since my last visit to the Côte d'Azur in France. During this period, I took to film photography again. And so for my return, I was looking forward to capturing, with my handy film cameras, some of that special light and blue sea that had drawn so many artists to the Riviera.

    "The overarching theme is seeing people in adverse conditions take matters into their own hands and still find the energy to go dancing or fall in love or create art," Astronautalis said of his new album.

    A Salute to the Masters: Bare Soles in Como (A Tribute to Christopher Anderson)

    The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
