I sent Roland-François Lack’s website The Cine-Tourist to a friend, who responded that the University College London professor is “clearly insane and we’re all the better for it.” The above images are from his 400+ deep index of films featuring maps. If that doesn’t take you down a rabbit hole, try his equally weighty list of cameras on film. Don’t make the mistake of stopping there, though, or else you’ll miss the story of his methodical pursuit of one postbox in Paris or the many other expeditions he sets out on to trace the topographies of film.
bless this mess!
