๐ŸŽž Analog Photo Essay: Lais on Film

Last week we met analog photographer Frank van Bennekom in a coffee place in Amsterdam. We spoke about his photography, our gallery and the common ground in between. Publishing his photo series โ€˜Laisโ€™ is the first outcome of this inspiring talk.

Van Bennekom, originally schooled as an architect, has the ability to distil the essence of a scene and represent it in a visually pleasing form. In this series Frank photographed Brazilian model Lais de Jesus in her hometown Rio de Janeiro. The charming Mama Ruisa Boutique Hotel in Santa Teresa combined with the colorful Ipanema beach became that ultimate Brazilian experience.
