A collection of Photos and Videos shot with a 1968 Iscorama 1.5x anamorphic lens with Nikon mount. This is an anamorphic front element on a 50mm taking lens produced by Isco Göttingen in 1968. It has uncoated lenses and produces the charismatic lens flares and oval bokehs we know from some classic hollywood movies. I found this lens in perfect condition on a flea market in Zürich in November 2015. This particular lens has unique field curvature and distortion, which produce incredibly contrasty and dimensional images with a swirled bokeh. The primary reason to shoot anamorphic is that you get the horizontal field of view of a wider lens with the perspective of a longer focal length. The photos here were taken with a Nikon D810 full frame body.
What is the future of indigenous cultures all over the planet? Traditions, languages ... peoples are dying. Whenever I visit indigenous people, they seem to be the happiest people by a far leg.
