I was lucky enough to return to Turin, Italy this summer – last time we only managed to cram two days in, and I couldn’t wait for the chance to return. Sometimes dubbed the ‘Little Paris of Italy’, Turin somehow has the charm of a small town mixed with palatial resplendence thanks to the squares and royal buildings still in place from the Royal House of Savoy.
I knew I had to try and capture the beauty of Turin on film, and it was certainly a little complicated at first. My trusty Olympus Trip 35 has been playing up lately, and sadly ate up and consequently spat out a roll of Ilford HP5 plus 400 that I just knew was going to be beautiful. Nonetheless, I was able to capture some of Turin’s style and grace.
The photos below were taken on Kodak Portra 160.
We spent a day in Milan before leaving for the airport – this is the world’s oldest shopping mall Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II
Palazzina di Stupinigi – one of the residences of the Royal House of Savoy and part of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list
Duomo di Milano
Piazetta Reale – one of my favourite squares in Turin
