ANALOG | Carnevale

Guess who got a new film camera. Yes, this crazy girl. I am so absolutely in love with the Minolta X300. I’ve always heard wonders of Minolta lenses, but not owning one of their cameras I couldn’t really try. Luckily the owner of my local Kodak retailer has taken a liking to me and set this particular baby aside for when I received my allowance as he’d seen hearts pour out of my eyes as I tested […]

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 […]

Calling All Beauties

  While I’ve been away I’ve been silently mulling over an idea. I see so many collaboration requests on work forums and blogger Facebook groups, but it’s usually commercially inclined or based on a “like for like, follow for follow” basis. I want my follower count to go up organically, not because I liked someone’s holistic yoga page or gave their homemade soaps a shout-out on an Instagram picture! One of my goals for 2016 […]

LONDON – Christmas Lights

Back in early December, before going home for the holidays, I managed to hop to London for a day trip. Since Caterina had to go there for a project of hers, she asked me if I wanted to tag along so we could raid the Charlotte Tilbury counter at Selfridge's together and I promptly said 'hell yes!'. While she did her thing, however, I had some time to walk around and snap a couple of pictures of the Christmas lights before it got too dark for my 160ISO film.

This is it, the last one. Thank you for accompanying me on my 35mm analog photography trip through the humid and heavily vegetated streets of Manila and the shores of liquid mercury of the Philippines in general. This is a final compilation of photographs taken inside a very beautiful church, the name of which escapes me. Most of them I’m not posting since it was dark and they came out blurry, but I particularly like the […]

Some more 35mm shots from Manila. Have another post coming soon of the church we visited and will get the last two rolls of film from Paris soon so I can finally start posting the pictures of that trip that aren’t portraits of Gabriele. Even though I’d kill to have more portraits of him. One thing that struck me about Manila once you left the “rich district” is how much green there is. It’s a complete contrast […]

Organised Chaos

The first of a series of posts I will be making of my trip to Manila last year. I’m trying to be a little more coherent and make smaller, shorter galleries divided into themes for each trip instead of one big post with 70 photographs every time I travel. Let me know if you prefer it that way – I definitely do, it’s a way of staying productive and posting consistently even when I go […]

Silver Oceans

The yearly exotic travel destination for the Summer of 2014 were the Philippines. It was probably one of the most tranquil and uneventful trips I’ve ever done with my family, since it was shorter than usual and my parents decided to stick to the beach and avoid cities. We did visit Manila for a couple of days, but that will be up on another post. Today, I’m focusing on the beautiful landscapes, rocky silhouettes and […]

Where The River Meets The Sea

In 1998, the World Expo was held in my hometown – Lisbon. I was 7 years old at the time and even though I barely remember anything from my childhood, I still have very clear and fond memories of the days when I visited the then-Expo. The theme of that year was ‘Oceans’, which is quite fitting if you think that not only is Portugal 50% oceanic coast, but Lisbon itself sits at the very […]

Gabri in Paris

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 […]
