Not everything has to be a project.

Not everything has to be a project.

Over the weekend, at Studio Brunswick (the creative studio in which I’ve been one of the resident artists in since June 2016) we decided to partake in a wonderful event called “Brunswick Studio Walk”. Brunswick is a particularly warehouse-studios-dense area of Melbourne and once a year, said studios open their doors to the public for a day, and trow exhibitions of the residents’ works.

Hey T, 

I hope you had a safe flight back home. 

I’m so glad we were finally able to spend a couple of months here in Melbourne together! There were so many places I wanted to show you, so many people I wanted you to meet.

Nico went to Sydney : a short story about being stupid.

Nico went to Sydney :  a short story about being stupid.

When I received the email from Head On confirming me I was a finalist, I was happy beyond control. As I usually do, I started jumping around, being stupidly loud for no real reason and, most especially, I completely lost the ability to stand still for the next few hours. Yup, I’m just like a big baby. 

For the following weeks I tried AS HARD AS I COULD not to create any expectations but hey, remember? Big baby.

2014 : a year in review.

2014 : a year in review.

I looked everywhere to find the perfect word to singlehandedly describe this last year. 

I found one : intense. 

2014 was indeed a very intense year for me. 

Very high ups, very low downs. Divided among 3 continents, 5 time zones and way more seasons that one would normally experience. Over 6000 km on a bicycle, an average of 3 hours of walking a day and countless long hours sitting on my bum.

Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 review : Don't just TAKE photos, GIVE them.

First things first, let me tell you why I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Fujifilm Instax Mini 90 camera: 

  • It looks like a Fujifilm X100s (aka: it's gorgeous)
  • It's so lightweight you'll forget you have it on you. I did, multiple times. You will as well. 
  • The battery lasts FOREVER. (Forever being approx. 200 photos!) 
  • It uses Fujfilm Instax Mini film, with their awesome and convenient cartridges of 10 film sheets. 
  • It creates beautiful, saturated and sharp credit-card sized memories 
  • It's FUN to use

Fujifilm X100s review : from Roma with love

Fujifilm X100s review : from Roma with love

I finally had the chance to lay my hulking hands on the beautiful Fujifilm X100s, the camera over which I have been drooling night and day for the last year or so. The camera that I always wanted but couldn't absolutely afford (25 years old freelance photographer here, remember?). The camera that one of my favorite photographers of all times, Zack Arias, described as the "DSLR killer".
