    Photos on Pages Volume 1: Taxi Driver by Steve Schapiro

    People With ... Books!

    If you are a curious Lomographer, (we are sure that you are), you will most likely sneak upon family members and friends while the are... reading! But what are they reading? Are they even reading or are they just looking at the pictures? Are they comfortably at home in the living room sofa or in the library? Do they "shhhhhhhh" you away or smile for your picture? But don't limit your imagination to others, what about you? Do you read? In which position?

    Analogue for a Day: The Best Things in Life are Analogue

    To me there's no doubt about it: the best things in life are analogue. Although online messages, digital cameras and an mp3 player do have its advantages, nothing beats the good ol' analogue world. What painter Bob Ross said about painting also applies to everything analogue: "We don't have mistakes here, we just have happy accidents."

    Real Gabinete Português de Leitura

    There are few places in the world, which I have visited because of one pictures I have seen of it. Such a place is the Real Gabinete Português de Leitura. A colonial library in the centre of Rio. A couple of years ago I was intrigued by a massive grand format picture from Andreas Gursky. He is one of the most famous photographers of our time, he surely is the most expensive one. His technique is to manipulate and enlarge pictures. His topic is the gathering of large groups and the enhancements of architectonic structures. He also chose the Gabinete as a sujet and that was, why I went there.
