They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world’s
A sunny day, oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to a photograph
So mama, don’t take my Kodachrome away
Credits: Paul Simon
Written in a time when the famous Kodachrome films were still in circulation (1973), the uniqueness of the films were well characterized in these lyrics.
This fall, Brooklyn based publisher powerHouse Books will launch a new book, 'Kodachrome Memory', that captures a selection of images that reveal the real America throughout the seventies and eighties - naturally shot with Kodachromes. As summer is still in progress, a preview is available online before it will hit the stores.

Stunning. Striking. Swept away.
That's how I would describe how a friend and I felt when we sneaked inside a gallery last week, on a dreary night in Berlin.
The way the German and relatively unknown photographer Horst Schäfer captured the sights of New York City in the sixties, is absolutely breathtaking. His superb timing and sense of architectural structures created phenomenal pictures that are hard to leave behind at Galerie Dittmar. Herr Dittmar was kind enough to show us - very proud and enthusiastic - the drawers, that were filled with Schäfer's pictures. Bless the era of analogue black and white photography and streets that were filled with decently dressed citizens. An era we can only long back for watching Mad Men and these pictures of course.
Please make sure to visit the exhibition if you're around the city of Berlin - it will be on view until February 23rd.

They say it never sleeps. A specific feature that defines its natural being - the Island of Manhattan. However, the overwhelming power of the storm Sandy put the island to sleep. A unique sight that was captured by the Dutch photographer Iwan Baan. Baan is well-known for his architectural work, but the latest publications of his work of a dark city, show a new form where architecture, urban grids and landscape tend to melt into true pieces of art.
