Stuck on an Island

Stuck on an Island

In a momentary lapse of reason UK decided to move towards the Brexit shores, since that moment this little island on the border of Europe has never felt more isolated. Stuck on an Island is a new on-going project that I am slowly shaping. It is a way to depict that isolation through every day […]

Chernobyl

Some people go on holidays to Paris, other to New York: I went to Chernobyl. Here are a couple of images from my recent trip to Ukraine and to what is now being marketed as a sort of weird tourist attraction. If you are into “disasterporn” or you just want to see how the area […]

Greetings from Uzbekistan

Uzbekistan is Central Asia’s most populous country, a “one-party democracy” and one of the only two double landlocked countries in the world. It is also home to the Aral Sea, technically a lake, that is rapidly disappearing due to a vast work of canalisation that started during Soviet times when the USSR decided to push […]

This is truly the land of dreams

Margate is a town located on the East coast of UK. Someone calls it a rundown seaside resort, someone says it’s being hipsterised, someone says it’s a UKIP stronghold or a white working class haven. Things are changing fast: Now there is a new gallery on the beachfront attracting those white, 30something Londoners like me that […]

Things Found

Things Found

Islamic centres, drunk people, religious associations and hipsters: Bethnal Green is where it happens and where I live. A couple of images from my latest stroll in my East London neighbourhood have just been added to my Epiphanies photoseries, on things lost, things found, associations and realizations. I am adding more scans and other images […]

These Guys

Lately I have spent a lot of time looking at other pictures so I forgot to develop a couple of black and white films from last December. As every year in December I went to Czech Republic and as usual I took a picture of these two guys. Say hello to grandma and grandpa… I am […]

Landscaping

I traveled again. This time I have been to Patagonia visiting both the Argentinian and the Chilean side, then moving North to Santiago and then to the desert towns of the Valle del Elquis. I decided to go minimal on clothing in order to make a bit more space for my new pleasure in life, […]

Medium Format Poverty

Medium Format Poverty

It was due to happen, at a certain point in my life I had to make that pretentious step and buy my first decent medium format film camera. After much thinking I bought the Mamiya 7, the only existing 6×7 rangefinder: it’s an ugly, big and unfriendly camera to use. My life changed for the better. Below are […]

The Yearly Portrait

Every year I go to Czech Republic and I take a portrait of my grandparents. It’s part of an ever evolving project on my confusing origins I called Homeland 2. This year was no exception and so below is the latest picture of my grandmother. She is now 86 and in the last years she […]

Subtropical Caucasus

Just North of the border with Turkey and an hour from the autonomous region of Abkhazia lies Batumi, a Black Sea coastal town and one of the main seaside resorts in Georgia. Soviet era housing estates are surrounded by palms and over the top new developments in this subtropical climate. It’s the Georgian Riviera. Below […]
