There was some disbelief in the last Vintage Video, the one with a talking camera. So without further ado, I present to you the original advertisement for the Minolta Talker!
It’s funny to note that once upon a time, a talking camera seemed like a good idea. It told you if you needed flash, if you’re too far for the flash, and if you’re out of film. You’d think that all that effort expended could just have gone into a better camera, no? But the introduction of this camera, together with other innovations during that time practically propelled the company into the foreground of the photography world.Let’s hope that they rise from the ashes!
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.

I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
At the end of October last year, René Burri, a great master of photography of the last century, passed away.

Take a look!

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.
From February to July, I experienced one the happiest times of my life: I lived in China. I lived in Suzhou, Jiangsu, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So here's some advice directly from me to you—what to do in Suzhou?
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
