The Shadows in Fairytales

Art / Photography / Things I make

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, […]

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 […]

Hello world, long time no see! I’ve been busy trying to find something to do with this horrid BA – Masters hiatus, so I ended up forgetting the little things that make me happy: long walks, architecture, photography and this blog. I just noticed I never posted the pictures I took when the man of my life came to spend a week in my hometown. We had a lot of fun and I made sure […]

It’s so close, you just can’t help going back. I know I’ve been neglecting this thing I call a blog – first because of my thesis, then Summer vacation and now being very busy with work and applying for a postgraduate degree – but I have a lot of 35mm stuff piled up in folders. I’ll be sure to post them within the next few days, including pictures in the Marche region of Italy, more […]

A Treasure Chest

One of the most delightful feelings in the world is picking up photos from a roll of film you’d forgotten, and realizing it’s a lot older than you thought. Somehow, 36 pictures were enough for Malaysia, Mallorca, Vietnam and Cambodia. A few of these have instantly become some of my all-time favourites, and knowing my love for the mysterious and light play, it’s pretty obvious which ones I’m talking about. I like blurry pictures. I like […]
