Art: Prints by Maya Beano

Through my purchase of some pictures by Allison Scarpulla, I had become enthusiastic about prints. I clicked around some other favorite Instagram photographers' websited in search of more.

Fake Italian: Dacora Digna

It was not long after I bought my Agfa Isola I at the local thrift store, that I came across a similar camera at the same store. Maybe from the same previous owner, who can tell. Dacora Digna, it said in the camera body, and for a moment I thought I had my first Italian... Continue Reading →
