Over Japan in 35mm

Over Japan in 35mm

A Japanese road trip can be an adventure, but the best way to experience the archipelago from top to bottom is by plane. Alex Thomas has been seeing the sites from just next to the pilot’s seat for a while now and has shot some swoon-worthy scenery from Sapporo to Kumamoto in 35mm.

City Island, Bronx

City Island, Bronx

Hanging precariously off the eastern coast of the Bronx is the sleepy fishing village of City Island. Though it is only an hour and a half away from the steely stare of Manhattan, it feels like a slice of idyllic New England.

Niagara Falls in 35

Niagara Falls in 35

Few things are more iconically American than a road trip to Niagara Falls — that icon of resplendent and plentiful nature, and a powerful symbol of cooperation between Canada and the U.S. I set out by car a few Fridays ago from Richmond, Virginia, bent on seeing Niagara Falls and being back in time for work […]

Galerie de Minéralogie

The Galerie de Minéralogie et de Géologie of the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris has reopened last December with a show called “Trésors de la Terre” (Earth’s Treasures) and chances are this is the kind of exhibition you won’t read about when looking at the arts section. This might sound like an outing for your 8-years-old nephew (and I […]

Travel: Sakurajima Dinosaur Park

Travel: Sakurajima Dinosaur Park

You have to appreciate the boldness of the good people of Kagoshima, Japan’s southernmost big city. They built a town on a scenic bay that faces a volcano, and a very active one at that. Surely, living with that view every day might help put one’s tiny life in perspective—the perpetual white cloud coming from the top of […]

Neighborhood: Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro

Neighborhood: Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro

It had been a long time since I had seen a city with so much graffiti. Still, in Rio’s Santa Teresa neighborhood it’s not so much the amount but the variety that is striking. Perched on a hill above Rio’s Centro, this old quarter feels worlds away from the modern glitz and gloss you’ll find closer to […]

Asheville in 35

Asheville in 35

Cities are all too often reduced to icons: yellow taxi New York boulevards, pretty Paris Cafés, London tube stations. On a recent trip to Asheville, NC, we discovered why the bustling mountain town is casually referred to as the Portland of the South. We headed down on a Friday, a six hour drive from Richmond, […]

Grand Canyon in 35

Grand Canyon in 35

The Grand Canyon is the original road trip destination. From pioneers striking out west to 1970s families in wood-panelled wagons, the splendor of this scene carved across Arizona’s northern reaches for millennia by the Colorado River is unparalleled. Need Supply Co. jack-of-all-trades Patrick traveled there last month and caught the very tail end of winter in 35mm on […]

Desert Riders: Skate Palm Springs

Desert Riders: Skate Palm Springs

I came to Palm Springs to escape a January of one too many polar vortices over New York. Almost as an afterthought, given the need for sunlight, I decided to make some portraits for a long-term documentary project on which I am working.  Before setting off, I had entertained a vague notion of a Mad […]

An Apartment in Milan

An Apartment in Milan

It took me quite some time to decide in which part of Milan I’d like to rent an apartment. All my preliminary researche made it quite clear that the hypercenter wasn’t the best best and that you had to look at neighborhoods slightly outside of the historic center. I didn’t want to make too extreme […]

Marble Museum, Estremoz, Portugal

Marble Museum, Estremoz, Portugal

Ever heard of Portuguese marble? I hadn’t either before traveling to the rural region of Alentejo last summer. It seems that the Portuguese are good at a lot of things, but not so good at making them known. Wikipedia tells me Portugal is actually the world’s second exporter of marble, behind Italy, with over 370,000 tons a […]
