I think I’m a crap photographer, lousy artist, rubbish writer... and am getting too old to ride fixie and love French women. However, I have 25 different Tumblr themes ranging from Arts and Cafés to Leicas and Volkswagens; and don’t load those pages with ordinary images but select stimulating visuals. To see all my theme updates follow "Ed Buziak / Fotoformat" on Facebook.
Fascinating face…
NB: I had to get rid of the Arco lamp from the top of my page… it’s a beautiful lamp but I didn’t like the setting or the photograph.

The modern classic “Arco Floor Lamp” designed by Achille & Pier Giacomo Castiglioni, 1962.
The design of this lamp is a rectangular Carrara marble base on which a curved metal rod ending in the shade of ac half hemisphere. The idea of the Castiglioni brothers, who loved inspiration from everyday objects, was to develop a light both elegant and rational. The block of marble weighs 65 kg, is bevelled to avoid injury, and is equipped with a hole to be able to carry the lamp. The adjustable arm allows the lamp to be placed 2 metres from the base.
This lamp is manufactured and marketed by the Italian company Flos and is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, NY.

If I could wake-up to this painting every morning of my later years… I would die a happy man ~ Ed B.
“Abstract Composition” ~ Jean Hélion, 1934.
Jean Hélion (April 21, 1904 – October 27, 1987) was a French painter whose abstract work of the 1930s established him as a leading modernist. His mid-career rejection of abstraction was followed by nearly five decades as a figurative painter. He was also the author of several books and an extensive body of critical writing.

"Xenia" ~ Salt print by Roman Aytmurzin.
The salt print was the dominant paper-based photographic process for producing positive prints during the period from 1839 through approximately 1860.
The salted paper technique was created by British photographer William Henry Fox Talbot. He called his negative process calotype printing, while the salt print process was used for making positive prints from the Calotype negatives. They both employ a technique of coating sheets of paper with silver salts, but the Calotype process differs slightly in chemicals used in the sensitization procedure, and uses an extra ‘accelerator’ step, immediately prior to exposure of the sensitized paper.

Display of Cyanotype prints…
I have created this Tumblr specifically for “alt.photo” work… or photographic prints made using traditional chemical means rather than digital. For seven years I published “Darkroom User” magazine in the UK and featured many of the more accessible (and less dangerous) vintage printing processes that our forefathers used. Unsurprisingly, in this “digital age” an increasing number of passionate photographers are returning not just to film, but to full hands-on coating their own glass and papers with a concoction of chemicals to get back to basics. “AltPhotoBuzz” is my page which will show some of the better examples I find… enjoy!

“Together we held a taut bow and a poised arrow. The weight of our bodies put tension on the bow while the arrow pointed at Marina’s heart. Small micophones were attached to both of our hearts, recording the increasing number of our heartbeats.”
