Homage to analogue photography – Week 1

Yes, analogue my dear friends, remember that? That very old-school specific way to capture all the things Alfred Eisenstaedt, a famous German-born America photographer meant when he said that “the important thing is not the camera but the eye.”

Once in a while it is rather nice to remember what photography was and hopefully still is all about. Nowadays, when technology is much faster than creativity, and everybody can take photographs and therefore call themselves photographers, we tend to forget the beauty of films, developing and analogue cameras. Yes, the manipulation is still pretty much possible, but if you tend to play fair and leave your work raw, it will be noticed. It will be art like in any other form, right?

As one of the analogue cameras’ collector and one of those people who don’t and will not forget and neglect analogue photography and lomography, I decided to pay an homage every week with few of my own very raw analogue shots I took in several places around the globe. Enjoy.
