Another fascinating encounter in Ukraine. Another of my Russian teachers, if only for 5 minutes.
Walking in the park outside the Ivan Franko University of Lviv, Ukraine. I see an interesting man coming towards me. Not only does he seems quite photogenic, but a gut feeling tells me it’s worth trying to chat a bit with him. I was right. Here is Alexey, 82-yr old matematician with a special interest for geological processes. Having being “thrown out” of his…
“E quindi sul fiorito ameno prato Al caro mormorio di fronde e piante…” (On the flower-strewn meadow, with leafy branches rustling overhead…)

Hanami days in Japan, as the beauty of cherry blossoms draws locals and tourists to the parks (March 2016). Polaroid Land Camera 250 & Fujifilm FP-3000b, if you wonder.

Sun shines even on the coast of Norway, sometimes. Very last chances of some decent weather, these days, before an endless winter takes over. That’s why I’ll surprise you using color film, for once. Double exposure made on Paranoid Land Camera 250 & Fuji FP-100c.
A box camera is like a box of chocolate.. you never know what you’re gonna get. Specially when you take multiple exposures.
