Waiting

WINTER – II. Largo

“Passar al foco i di quieti e contenti, mentre la pioggia fuor bagna ben cento”

(Before the fire to pass peaceful and happy days, while the rain outside soaks everyone)

FOG

It’s coming back

SPRING – III. Allegro

“Di pastoral Zampogna al suon festante, danzan Ninfe e Pastor nel tetto amato di primavera all’ apparir brillante.” (Led by the festive sound of rustic bagpipes, nymphs and shepherds dance beneath the brilliant canopy of spring.)

SPRING – II. Largo e pianissimo sempre

“E quindi sul fiorito ameno prato Al caro mormorio di fronde e piante…” (On the flower-strewn meadow, with leafy branches rustling overhead…)

SPRING – I. Allegro

“Giunt’ è la Primavera e festosetti La Salutan gl’ Augei con lieto canto, E i fonti allo Spirar de’ Zeffiretti Con dolce mormorio Scorrono intanto….” (Springtime is upon us. The birds celebrate her return with festive song, and murmuring streams are softly caressed by the breezes..)

Sick & tired

That’s what I am. Sick & tired of all of this, that you may find so charming since you don’t have to live with it for 6 months a year.

Right now

Trondheim, 5.11.2015 – Polaroid Land Camera 250 / Fuji FP-3000b

Surprise! (polaroid)

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.

 

My photo cave: Il cimento goes gallery

Starting from today, “il cimento” is also photo gallery, workshop, darkroom and meeting place for a photography chat. In other words, my photo cave.

Anyone who happens to be in Trondheim, Norway, is welcome to drop in. Impossible to miss, in the heart of Bakklandet.

You don’t want to buy any photos? Here’s what else you can do at my “photo cave” and how it works:

  • Check out inspiring photo books of my favourite photographers: Petersen, Sobol, Ackerman, d’Agata, Moriyama, Araki, etc. But mind: these are not for sale!
  • Try other types of film than what you normally use. Just bring a roll of negative film, color or BW, 35 mm or 120, and choose one of mine for free (I don’t sell film).
  • Borrow and try one of my old cameras: how about an old analogic SLR, an original Polaroid, a pinhole or a box camera? Swap whatever camera you can live without for a few days with whatever is available here and try new charming tools (I don’t sell cameras either).
  • Rent the whole gallery space to exhibit your own work for a week or two. Rather cheap too.

No matter what you want to do, you’re welcome. Right now I’m displaying about 50 of my pinhole photographs.

Il cimento gallery is located in Øvre Bakklandet 17, Trondheim, Norway.

Trondheim, Norway.

By the fjord (pinhole)

February 2014, Trondheim’s fjord, central Norway (probably the first snow free winter in Norwegian history). Kodak Tri-X in modified Sharan pinhole camera.

Pinhole roll n.I – Trondheim

First roll of Tri-X 400 exposed through a paper-made pinhole camera bought in Tokyo.

All images were shot handheld, in some cases holding the camera against walls or so. Exposure times of 1 – 5 seconds.
