Autumn in Poland is just so lovely and this last year we were treated to a pretty warm and pleasant one that reached all the way into November. I started this roll of Kodak Pro 100 in late September and lazily shot it with my Nikon FM2 until just before Christmas capturing moments as they…Read More
A 10 Year Chronicle of Being Sober and the Impact of Change.
On December 13th, 2009 I woke up to a bottom that I hadn’t experienced yet in my life and it scared the hell out of me. So much so, that I began the process to stop drinking that very morning, clean up and change the course of my life not fully understanding what that meant.Read More
I blame HAMMER Horror Films for my love of fog.
Its true…. That and a keen imagination heavily insired by Karl Kolchak and Stephen King among others. I could write a serious list of these inspirations but I think it would be safer to say there is hardly a horror film or book that I am not familiar with at this point. But hey…let me…Read More
Tram Stories; Windows
Everyday moments of staring out the window, preoccupied, daydreaming or just being lost in thought while passing time for the appropriate stop to arrive.
Enjoy the ride. I do.
Auschwitz-Birkenau. My shadow has grown a bit darker.
A thousand feelings and memories came to my mind at the entrance of the Auschwitz memorial and museum. A lifetime of books, films, articles and conversations referencing the holocaust and the atrocities that were carried out, but not one single thing or any of my life experiences could prepare me for the horror and tangible feel of being at the site and how it would ultimately change my perception once leaving.Read More
A little luck and good fortune goes a long ways.
Earlier in August, my Nikon FM2 broke…again. Same issue as last time, the rewind stem came undone. Luckily (again) it happened just after I rewound the film, so some very good fortune there. Riding with luck on my side, I found a repairman dedicated to cameras in a way I had not witnessed before and…Read More
My growing obsession into film continues.
Last year on my birthday while vacationing in Lisbon, Agnieszka surpised me with an analog workshop and it set into motion a renewal of energy in photography and a love affair with film. Sometimes I am surpised with how much that single day impacted me and the direction it has taken me in, but life…Read More
Whatever catches your eye.
“Get outside. It’s all about getting out and walking. That’s the first thing. The second thing is, forget everything you’ve learned on the subject of photography for the moment, and just shoot. Take photographs—of anything and everything, whatever catches your eye. Don’t pause to think. That’s the advice I give people… ” ~ Daido Moriyama…Read More
Analog; Agfa APX 100 Warsaw and Georgia
Another roll that was split between Warsaw and Georgia, this time with Agfa APX 100. Another roll that I had not previoulsy used but found the reults more than satisfying. Shot with my Nikon FM2 between April and May, beginning in Warsaw with my little cat Luna and finishing in the Sagrejo region of Georgia.…Read More
Analog; Fuji Provia 100 Georgia and Warsaw
The first half of this roll was shot in early May while traveling in Georgia through the Sagarejo and Mestia regions and the second half I finished once back in Warsaw. I have stated it before, but Georgia is an amazing country worth traveling to with a wide and diverse type of landscape to explore.…Read More
