Take 3

I recently visited an exposition by Anri Sala in the GEM museum in The Hague. Sala is an Albian artist who has won the Vincent Award (named after Van Gogh and not me obviously….). His work of art contains video art combined with different performances of the Clash’s Should I stay or should I go and a drumkit that drums on its own. It did not particular got my attention, but this scene did. Although its was pitch dark, knowing my camera inside out I quickly grabbed it, set the aperture on the F2,0 and the shutter speed on 1/15 combined with a ISO of 320. By leaning against a wall and having a fairly steady grip, I managed to take this picture. I am quite content with it as it represents the atmosphere of the room perfectly.3 of us

Looking Down

Shooting with an old medium format film camera enables you to take pictures of children without being creepy. With a Yashica Mat 124 G, you have to look at the top instead of the back of the camera. Truly a whole other experience and very Zen-like. I caught these boys in one of the parks in Rome, totally emerged in their play with a smartphone.
