Dreamy Film Photographs by Amalia Sieber

2013-09-05 2

We all know how film is such a flexible medium that allows us to get both crystal-clear and dreamy photos. Photographs like those taken by a San Francisco-based artist are certainly a testament to this quality and the kind of effect they bring to viewers. Read on to take a look and find out more!

I don’t know about you guys, but looking at the surreal film photographs of San Francisco photographer Amalia Sieber, to me, feels like diving into another person’s dreams, visions, and make-believe worlds. We’re no strangers to retro hues and surreal double exposures, but the powerful — and sometimes haunting — imagery possessed by her photographs simply takes one to a different emotional dimension.

Take a look at some of her photos from her Living In A Dreamworld series and you’ll see what I mean:

Amalia says her best attribute is her “being able to see the world differently than most” which leads her to create her own dreamworlds. As for using film, she says she says she prefers film to digital photos “because it just adds better texture and quality of light to a photo.”

So, what can you say about Amalia Sieber’s dreamy film photos? Share your insights with us and leave a comment below!

    The Beauty of Black and White

    A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.
