This time I’m presenting you a video I made for Peter McKinnon’s challenge.
Today is the day!
After a few test prints I finally put some of my photos up for sale. For now you can only buy them through my Facebook page under this link:
…and I take a photo that of what I wanted to try for a while.
I think the car is Vanden Plas Princess 1100. Just look at that wooden interior!
Now I will show you some of my analogue cameras. I have more, but didn’t take photos of them, but maybe in future you will get to see the remaining ones as well. The cameras I present to you today are Agfa Silette, Canon A-1 and Smena Simbol.
A couple of photos from the Back to Scratch (6.04.2019) event at Tokyo Bar in Lisbon. And we could all see that winter was against us, because this time the club was full!
Just a quick post to share 3 photos I took back in November 2018 in the area of Lisbon harbour.
Finally got the film developed and scanned. It was with me since January…
Inês (@kalliekalynn)is a local girl I met last year during the 24 Hour Project and we kept in touch. It also turned out she is very talented, as she creates beautiful illustrations – you can check them out here: @kalliekalynnstuff
I was supposed to take my Canon A1 to this photoshoot, but just before loading the film I noticed it doesn’t work – broken shutter release. So I decided to take something more challenging with me – Agfa Silette. That camera is probably from the mid 1950’s, doesn’t have a built-in light meter, no way to check your focus is right, but hey! We were going to have fun with it anyway. Film I used was black and white Kodak Professional T-MAX 400.
No more talking, check out the scans below.
This post was meant from be different to what it is…
When I moved to Lisbon in the summer of 2016 it immediately caught my eye that the city is full of street art – graffiti, tags, murals, stickers, paste-ups – you name it. It caught my eye, but that was about all that happened. I thought “yeah, there’s a lot of it” and while I would stop and admire some works here and there, I understood very quickly that I’m falling in love with the city. When I think ‘Lisbon’ I think ‘woman’. And it’s because of this wall by Tami Hopf in Alfama (done in 2016 – coincidence?):
While I was getting to know the areas of Lisbon more and more, I kept on “discovering” new works, but it was May 2017 that made a big difference in my perception of street art and the artists behind it. There was an event in Amoreiras with the old school graffiti writers and I decided to and have a look. I took my camera with me and tried to document the progress of beautifications without interrupting the guys painting… but surprisingly some of them would stop painting when they saw a new face around. That’s how I met Obey, Slap, Utopia, Roteweiller and indirectly the person behind Street Art Lovers on Instagram (who is now my good friend).
And that’s where things get complicated, because I wanted to show you the photos from that event, but the DVD with those photos is unreadable…
At least I can keep it short now! 🙂
I tried to take a good photo of every wall I found interesting, a wall that had a decent work on it and my Instagram used to be full of those photos. Through all those people I met other artists, they would share information about other events and I would get to see more walls and take more photos…
I will keep the rest for another post. Below are some of the works of my favorite artists, but I still wish I could show you some of those from Amoreiras from 2017…
Márcia aka Masimmo agreed for a photoshoot recently, but I promised her analogue shots… Well, logistics failed and I didn’t get the battery for my Canon A-1 on time, so we both agreed to have a session with the digital camera instead.
After you check out the below photos, have a look at her other stuff, too.
