The first Vought F4U Corsair was delivered to the U.S. Navy in 1940 but due to landing performance issues it became a land based fighter bomber for the U.S. Marines. Known as “whistling death” by the Japanese the aircraft served with distinction in both World War II in the Pacific Theater and during the Korean conflict. In total there were 12,571 F4U Corsairs were manufactured between 1942 and 1953.

On the west side of US 395, six miles south of Independence, California, stands a solitary guard tower. Guard Tower #8 was once one of eight guard towers that encircled the 6200 acre Manzanar Relocation Center located at the base of Mount Tyndall. At the start of the Second World War President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed Executive Order No. 9066 into law Congress which resulted in nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans to leave their homes. Manzanar was one of the 10 relocation centers spread across the Western United States that by the end of the war had housed almost 10,000 internees.

Shadows


To me this picture embodies my ideal concept of shadows within a context. It gives a sense of place because of the Japanese writing on the wall and a sense of order and symmetry because of the way the shadows are neatly placed at the sides of the plaque.
It was taken about 3 years ago in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, using a digital SLR.

Gabriele Rampinini, Photographer in Tokyo

Mannequin

IMG_6193My name is Gabriele Rampinini, I’m Italian and I live in Tokyo, Japan.
I particularly enjoy taking pictures of mannequins, shadows, graffiti, buildings and trees.
Recently I started using film (mainly black&white, 35mm and medium format) and I learnt how to develop it myself (not very difficult but very satisfying).
I believe that working with an analog camera in the long run will help me being more selective with the subjects and the perspectives I choose for my pictures.
Of course I realize that for sport and fast action in general, digital is the way to go, but for things that don’t move analog cameras slow you down just enough to let you think more about the composition before taking a picture. This usually results in stronger images, I feel.
Anyway I use them both and I find it very refreshing to switch form one to the other… At the moment I’m enjoying the Hipstamatic on the iPhone… it’s a lot of fun!

Above all, what I look for is originality and a sense of quiet beauty. Through the subjects of my images I strive to give the viewer something of my character. I try to give them MY perspective even on subjects they may be familiar with.

Through my Photoshelter website you can buy prints as well as a wide variety of products and accessories, ranging from T-shirts to magnets.
I also offer the flexibility to order a product of your choice with one of your pictures on it.
Whatever you choose I do my best to make sure you’ll be 100% satisfied.
For any further information do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you !
