founder: Cojones

hommage a Salgado, Canacona, Goa
Leica M8, 50/1.4 Summilux-M ASPH

Cojones is a photojournalist and macrophotographer. He is technically masochistic and prefers a challenge, and has developed a recent allergy to color since discovering Leica. He learned photography by the consequences of experimentation and statistics of large numbers of frames, and bows in deference to the technical skill of Adams, the timing (but not technical ability) of HCB, the aesthetics of Salgado, and the huevos of Majoli. He is not particularly hard on his equipment but has laid more cameras to rest than the average person has had sexual partners. Film is by no means foreign - there is more Provia in his fridge than food - but does not offer the per-image flexibility of a good raw file, and for Cojones, the new darkroom reeks not of chemicals but of Photoshop and a Wacom.


  1. Dude, cant you just talk like a normal person and get straight to the point i.e. "I love cameras more than sex, digital rocks and I would give my right cojones to shoot for magnum or natgeo". Dont faff around man. We know what you really are :P

  2. Both cojones, my friend, both cojones.
