We are featuring a beautiful travel story today from film photographer Julio Cardador. Julio is a Berlin based photographer and musician, and, in this set of images, he captures the spirit of Granada, Spain, focusing on its incredible architectural details. Here are a few words from Julio about his film photography journey:

I started with photography when I was around 6 years old, when I got my first cheap point-and-shoot camera. Over the years, I developed a passion for cameras. I started collecting, repairing, and reselling photographica. I never stopped shooting film (#neverstoppedshootingfilm), and my passion even increased when I switched to medium format in 2007. At that time, a friend gave me his old Reflecta II, a camera from the former GDR. My path led me then to a Kiev 88 (a love-hate relationship, but I get some of the best shots with it) to my now favorite, the Mamiya RB67.

Nowadays, I’m shooting a lot of portrait and architecture, selling fine art prints or entirely handmade darkroom prints. Someone told me my style was more documentary than fine art. If that’s describing what I do, so be it. To me, I like the abstract in what I see. I try not to “stage” shots. Instead, I take the situation as is, but with my own framing.

Analog cameras and films used: Kiev 88 CM (Find at KEH Camera or Ebay) | Fuji Velvia 100 (Find on Amazon)
