Every picture tells a story

This is a collection of photos I took over the past few years.

It's never about the photo itself, but the story that each of them contains. Most of the times, I travel with my Yashica Samurai to nearby or faraway countries. To develop analog photos gives me the impression that time can move slower than what it actually does. It is an exercise for memory, because nowadays images are so fluctuant and transitory, the fact of materializing a photo on a film gives them another depth. They are more real, building up a castle of memories.

Almost all shots are made with my Yashica Samurai x3.0. Just a few with a Nishika N8000.
