  • Phil

    These are beautiful, rare talent indeed.

  • Jen

    I LOVE these portrait/photo journalistic photos. Oh the stories behind each one.. they get me asking questions , lots of them, and that to me marks a FAB photo! I would love to know what city /area these were taken if possible. Thanks! Great work!!!

  • JEN, These are from Paul’s series “We Shall” shot around the Cabrini-Green area of Chicago. Paul currently teaches at Columbia in Chicago. http://www.pauldamato.com/work/

  • Rivard

    Hey old man. Nice work. Shoot me an email.

  • Incredible work, fantastic rich lighting, superb play of contrasts (girl with a pillow, boy by the pool!!!!), more than the awesome composition balance and finally what a mood, maestro! What to say, handling street people on such level of concentration is beyond real.

    beautiful, normally I don’t love staged photos but these somehow still seem so natural, I don’t know, something about them

35mm Camera Made Entirely with 3D Printing

slo2

SLO is a 35mm camera created by 3D designer Amos Dudley, every part of which is 3D printed, including the lenses (although those took about 5 – 6 hours to be sanded down by hand). Designed with a modular lens and shutter system, the lenses can be swapped in/out and longer exposure photos achieved using the shutter buttons along the top. More images of SLO below! You can also check out Dudley’s blog here, where he documented the entire project.
