    I caught up with a group funfair travelers as they hosted their fair in the small city of Ghent, Belgium. I was fortunate enough to be accepted onto their camping site as a photographer and was granted all the permissions I needed in order to document their way of life. This is an ongoing project.

    One of the more interesting additions this year was the Smash Shack, a large tent where you could pay money to smash glass plates and dishes against a wall. From what I saw and heard, it seems quite therapeutic.

    Calgary Stampede - The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth Celebrates 100 Years

    The 100th anniversary of the Calgary Stampede (also known as “the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”) is being celebrated this year (July 6th to 15th). The Stampede is an annual 10 day rodeo and fair that is attended by people from around the globe. It is likely this event that helps perpetuate the “Cowtown” nickname for Calgary because everyone’s inner cowboy or cowgirl comes out for the Stampede. Oh yeah, and we get some genuine cow-folk as well.

    Summer Hot Spots: The Annual Antwerp Fair Sinksenfoor

    Every year, sometime in the second half of May, the annual Antwerp fair takes place on the biggest open space in town. As soon as workers start building and the attractions arise, the excitement rises with it. By the time they are done, there's a new village built in town: the Sinksenfoor has arrived and is ready to stay for 6 weeks straight. The perfect place to spend those first hot summer days of the year!

    October Festivities: Goose Fair

    I've become a serial attender of the Goose Fair in Nottingham if only to try and capture some interesting photos. Last year was all about bold colours and cross-processing but this year I fancied trying some night shots with the bulb mode on the La Sardina. This is how it went.

    The Seville Fair is celebrated in April every year. Last year I was lucky enough to be there and witness an event that brings together the best characteristics to photograph. There was so much color, motion, tons of music and above all many people happily ready to be “lomographed” with their traditional outfits giving a special flavor to one’s photographs.

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The Secular Fair in Alzate Brianza

    Every year in the beginning of September, a small Italian town situated a few miles from my city of Como hosts an ancient fair dedicated to the Virgin Mary: the Fair of Our Lady of Rogoredo. This series of images fresh from my darkroom was taken using a roll of HP5+ film loaded inside my wonderful Horizon Perfekt.
