20.000 photos with peace from around the world will create a true piece of art - the Pokoj (Peace) LomoWall during Lodz's Lomography Meeting 2011. Submit your lomographs to become part of this exhibition and to pimp up your piggy account.
This year’s Lomography Meeting in Lodz will consist not only of slide shows of pictures, a camera obscura and a series of workshops but also of the Pokoj LomoWall. What the hell is Pokoj? The Polish word has two meanings: peace and room.
We want to create a lomographic piece of art with contributions from around the world in one room using an unbelievable amount of 20.000 photos.
Why? To show others how a lomographer sees peace in his/her world and how the lomographic community contributes to a democratic piece of art it in their own, amazing, colourful and extraordinary way!
So, now you know why we need the support of our loyal community and ask you to upload your submissions! Show us what peace means to you, in your culture, your family, your surrounding, in your “room”.

On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday. Since then, Americans have celebrated Fourth of July in full regalia. Some parade in flag-themed costumes or party in their best dresses, while others bond with friends over beer in the park.
This article is dedicated to one of the most important masters of photography, Robert Capa. Capa is well known for his photos of war, from the famous image of the Republican Spanish soldier collapsing backwards after being fatally shot to his images taken in Indochina. He was also a co-founder of the famous Magnum Photo Agency, the first cooperative agency for freelance photographers worldwide. For this article, I took advantage of a rare event held in my city, Como, some weeks ago: a military drill for civil protection purposes.
