Film & Flash Archive

In anticipation of the re-opening of my blogging activity (a few days left), a quick promotion for the latest
mus-mus collective project: Film & Flash Archive.

There's a few days left to participate, you don't want to miss it!

Here's the launch:

"Hey! Got old flash or film hanging around in your studio? Want to put it to good use?

Don't take a picture with it -- take a picture of it. Team mus-mus is looking for your help with an archive that will let us all see film and flash products that we're bidding au revoir, leaving behind, or perhaps still clinging desperately to. Since George Eastman first invented an emulsion coating machine to mass-produce photographic dry plates in 1879, commercially available photography technology has been a sustaining feature of the photographer's practice. As old technologies are increasingly falling away and sometimes re-emerging in new 'skins', it will be interesting to take a collective worldwide snapshot of what's on hand in studios (and maybe flea markets) now that are gone from stores or will be tomorrow."

Submission details at the project's page - have fun!

Away, again

My window seat, a few days ago

As you may have noticed, the blog has been silent recently. The reason is that I'm away for work, not exactly in the condition to update these pages until the end of this month. Hopefully I'll be able to write something in the following weeks, but should that not happen, I renew my usual appeal during forced leaves: stick around, I'll be back soon.

Come avrete notato, il blog è silente da molti giorni, la ragione è dovuta al fatto che sono via per lavoro e non avrò molto tempo per aggiornare queste pagine fino alla fine del mese. Spero comunque di riuscire a scrivere qualcosa durante le prossime settimane, ma se non dovessi farcela rinnovo il consueto invito fatto durante le mie assenze forzate: restate sintonizzati, tornerò presto.
