How to load Franka

It's about time to leave for some holidays. Starting from next weekend I'll be splashing myself somewhere on an Island, leaving behind my shoulders this hot and humid town for a fortnight.Once back a new old lady should be waiting for me in my office. Her name is Franka and my 591pal, Paolo, has just prepared a video to show how it must be loaded and unloaded with a 120 film roll.

Franka is touring around the world. Next month will be in Milan. You can follow her travel on her dedicated pages.

Ruhollah Mahmoudi

I just posted on 591 a stunning series from a young talented Iranian photographer: Ruhollah Mahmoudi. I believe it's worth a careful look, as well as a walk through his professional and generous website. I'm very happy to have contributed this series (and a new one about to be published) to be shown to a wider audience. In these vivid and living images I find the same appeal and sense of presence I use to find on those series published by world famous reportage magazines.

Flower Power

Time to blow the dust off.

591 Photography has just waged a new campaign called "Flower Power", collecting any kind of picture about flowers.The contribution we are receiving are worth of an exhibition that I hope we'll be able to set up and put on display. Anyone can give his/her contribution. Submissions will be accepted all along the incoming Summer. You can dive through the currently received picture by clicking exactly HERE!

This happening gave me the chance to remove the dust off some good pictures I took years ago in the meadow standing in front of my office building.
