I feel bad for not updating the blog for the past couple of months, but as usual things have been quite crazy, non stop travel, lots of planning and research for upcoming projects and many commissions from magazines world wide. Hopefully soon i’ll be able to write up a post where i show what i’ve been up to lately. More importantly my new company “Immortal Entertainment” is up and running and we promise to bring some freshness to the Middle East in terms of films, photography and music.
Today i present you with some photographs i’ve been shooting since November of last year, all the images were shot on a medium format Rolleiflex (circa 1960), this is one of my favorite cameras and i’ve been carrying it with me in my travels more often now.
Without further ado i present you with moments i’ve captured with this incredible camera, and i’ll let the photos do the talking.
I’ve also been exploring shooting portraits with the Rolleiflex and I have to say that you’ll be seeing more of these in my work. The simplicity of it all and not having to put the camera up in front of your face connects you in a different way with the subject, not to mention what a great conversation starter it is.
Till next time, Salam.
