ANALOG | Fragmentary

I’m back after a tremendously long absence with the first of a series of analog photography posts! I’m finally getting excited again about creating images and capturing scenes. For the first time ever in my many years of having fun with 35mm cameras I am finally starting to take it more seriously, and I’m thinking more about capturing certain angles, moods and sentiments more than taking a ‘nice snapshot’. So I think this is the […]

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, […]

Prague in Black & White – May ’14

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 […]

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 […]

Firenze and the Field of Dreams

Photography / Travels

When visiting a fairytale setting, your 35mm camera is your best friend. The instant perfection of digital imaging fails to capture the gritty, surreal beauty of the Ponte Vecchio, or the drug-like oneiric atmosphere of the Giardino di Boboli. Wherever you are, it’s three steps away from where you want to go, and exactly where you want to be. Firenze feels like a bubble, Alice’s landing place after falling down the rabbit hole, a preserved […]

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 […]
