Gabri in Paris

Photography / Travels

Another portrait series. Since I’m dividing my rolls of film from Paris – three are done, one has to be scanned and the other one still needs to be developed (no idea what’s in there) – I decided to go with themes. As you probably (don’t) know, I just moved from Rome to Brighton (UK) and I am already missing my darling Gabri (@grumpygabri on Instagram and @ggirolamini on Twitter, so click both links and […]

The Last Dance

My last long lonely walk around Rome on a hot Summer day. I finally got the courage to walk all the way up to the Giardino degli Aranci (where I didn’t see any oranges) and that one magnificent church overlooking Testaccio. Sadly I couldn’t go in – there were two weddings going on at the same time – but just the atmosphere of being so high atop a hill that I had looked up at […]

Everywhere At Once

You know I tend to take a lot of random pictures when I really want to finish a roll of film. Since I have a strong tendency to switch between my Canon AE-1 and my Canon T50, there’s almost always an unfinished roll of film in one of them. I forget about the one I was using and pick up whichever one is closest, though I’m growing very fond of the AE-1. Some of these […]

A Summer Feeling

These were taken a little before Summer hit Italy at its full force, though the colours of this particular film (a Fuji Velvia 160 if I’m not mistaken) are so warm and cosy it really makes me think of late July afternoons. Though it’s obviously 2015, I’ve been commenting on how these photographs look “straight out of the ’70s” and, fair enough, the print shop’s scanner seems to agree with me. I love this roll […]

The Shadows in Fairytales

On a weekend trip back home to Lisbon, my dad and I decided to drive up to Sintra to visit a particular monument that people usually miss, since it’s nestled between several other major ones – Palacio da Pena, Quinta da Regaleira, Castelo dos Mouros and Convento dos Capuchos to name a few. This one is very small and, as most small monuments in the forest are, it’s also incredibly pretty. It’s called the Chalet da Condessa – translated roughly, The […]

The Ghosts of Romans

Took me a while, but finally publishing the black and white 35mm photographs I took on my trip to Ostia Antica, an amazing archaeological site a short drive away from Rome. On one hand, I wish I’d used colour film to capture how breathtaking and well-conserved the frescoed walls and mosaics are, but on the other hand I always prefer black and white when visiting ‘touristic’ sites, especially those that deal with the past – cemeteries, […]

Prague in Black & White – May ’14

Photography / Travels

As promised here are the black and white photographs I took back during our Prague vacation in May of last year. Camera at this point was probably the Canon AE-1 I bought over there and film most likely Ilford 100… which, for some reason, I can’t find anymore? I can only find the ISO125 one. Does anyone know what happened to the Ilford 100? Where did it go? If you don’t know by now the Ilford 100 is my […]

Prague in Colour – May ’14

So I had a massive introduction written for this post which got completely erased when I tried to insert the pictures (thank you WordPress). Now I’m a bit out of patience so I’ll keep it short. Back in May 2014, Gabriele and I did our first little trip together to Prague. It was cold, we had to buy coats at Zara. We ate hotdogs in the street, I got drunk at a place called “Zombie Bar” […]

It’s finally here! The first issue of LUNETA Magazine, produced by me for my Bachelor’s Degree final thesis project, is now uploaded as an .epub and can be both viewable online and downloadable. Only a small number of printed copies were available once I finished this project, since cost of print was quite high, but I’m quite proud of it and really wanted to put it out there on the web for everyone to see. It […]
