Netflix Ripley, Atrani in black and white
2nd May 2024

Netflix’s “Ripley” isn’t just a show: it’s a visual feast in gorgeous monochrome. I am sure that by now, you have watched it or at least know about it from the many discussions online. The director’s choice to film in black-and-white seems to have divided opinions, as it seems to be the case with everything these days. But to me, the absence of colour creates a world of stark contrasts, highlighting the...

Solar Eclipse Gallery
9th April 2024

As promised in the previous post, here is my Total Solar Eclipse photo gallery featuring the best photos I could find online. I wish even just one of these photos was mine. But I could not travel for the event, and the UK was not blessed with the spectacle (it was also raining yesterday). I did capture the Super Blood Wolf Moon eclipse though: it’s here. The Gallery The cover image is...

Grand Bazaar, Istanbul, Photographing the World episode 2

I have finally managed to assemble the hours and hours of footage filmed in the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and the surrounding area. Finding my way through it, along the narrow alleyways of the open-air markets, on the way to the Egyptian Bazaar, and more. The “Photographing The World” Series continues, and we now wander in Fatih, through the Grand Bazaar and the huge markets area! The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is...

Fujifilm XF 8mm F3.5 R WR
26th May 2023

I had the opportunity to use the new Fujifilm XF 8mm F/3.5 the day it was announced—almost out of the blue. I asked one of my contacts at Fujifilm if they had the 8-16mm lens at hand because I needed an ultra-wide angle lens to photograph an apartment for Airbnb. The spaces were a bit restrictive, so I wanted the widest non-fisheye lens in the Fujifilm range. Luckily, a magazine reviewer had...

Manchester Punks 1980 with Midjourney AI, by @fabienb.ai
20th April 2023

So I went to see my grandparents during Easter to help them tidy up the garage. As it happens, we found a shoebox full of old photos, which made for an entertaining trip down memory lane ;) A large document of the punk life in Manchester, UK, in the 1980s… This is how the story of this series of images could be told. In reality, I created the Manchester Punks series with...

24th December 2022

We recently had a few inches of snow in London. Almost perfect timing for the Xmas period! :) The snow in London didn’t last long, but it was enough to cover the city with a fluffy white blanket. Which is always a lovely scene to behold. Last year as well, we had one day of snow, and I documented it in a YouTube video. I was still living close to the city...

Street Photography in Istanbul | Photographing the world Episode 1 Youtube
21st September 2022

The new “Photographing The World” Series starts here, and we kick off with Street Photography in Istanbul! This video was long due, but I came back from Istanbul with 6+ hours of footage and almost 1Tb of photos… All over the place. I was to give you a full-length docu-vlog of about 20-25 minutes. But then I thought a small pill format would have been much more palatable (pun intended). So here...

Snow in London photowalk
3rd February 2021

First (and so far only) day of snow of 2021, so of course I had to go out for a Snow In London photowalk! I love the snow, maybe because it is always been so rare in every city I have lived in. In Florence, for example, people still talk about the snow of 1985… This rare! The river Arno also froze, and you could walk over it, so that’s why the...

London Fog Photography
20th November 2020

Today we’re looking at fog photography in London. In particular, a lot of cityscape and some street “fog photography”. We all have in our hearts the sight of beautiful landscapes in a thick fog or a delicate mist. But this has become rarer and rarer in the city. In London, for example, we now only have 2-3 days of fog a year. And so far, only 1 morning of fog in 2020:...

London lockdown photography | In Pictures
5th November 2020

London lockdown, again… England is entering its second national lockdown phase today as Coronavirus/Covid-19 cases have risen sharply. This gives me the opportunity to finally present my London lockdown photography project on YouTube. Back when I took the photos, I wasn’t producing content for my channel yet. So, unfortunately, I didn’t film my usual POV footage. However, I did document the empty streets of London in a few eerie images. I wasn’t...

Richmond Park | Stag | The Limited 10
24th October 2020

Yesterday, I went out with my friend Martyn for a photographic morning with Richmond Park deers. This park just outside of London is famous for its deers but also has a nice view over the city (albeit far away) that is perfect for sunrise in some periods. It’s not the only park with deers, there’s at least Bushy Park as well, but here seems to live the largest colony. Autumn is the...
