Welcome to nowhere ! Welcome HOME ! A gathering of a community...
Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather to create Black Rock City in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, an event which is dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. One week later, having left no trace whatsoever, it vanishes into the dust. All traces are removed from the playa as if nothing every happened.
A truly unique experience in which you see & hear a myriad of things all at once – which completely takes over all of your senses – leaving you with a dreamlike impression for the rest of your life – and yes it is indeed life changing – hard to put into words – but do check out the gallery area http://www.burningman.com/galleries/ where you can get a taste of what it is like at Black Rock City. If you ever get the chance I highly recommend that you go. It really is the best thing I have ever seen and done in all of my life so far … yeah really!
In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.
Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!
Lomo Lubitel 166+ is a match to the classic beauty of black and white photography. Perennial scenes of city life and nature get the right amount of light and dark, thanks to trusty exposure settings. The glass lens, with its sharp vision, helps photographers get tonal and evocative imagery. These photos from all over the community are prime examples.
New York City is the busiest and most populous city in the USA. Home to 8.5 million people, it is a massive melting pot. The city embraces many different cultures, which makes it home to many immigrants, too. Let's take a look at NYC through the lens of the Lomo LC-A!
A recent trip to Bekasi City in his home country Indonesia had introduced priyotrilaksono not only to its sights and its locals, but was also treated to a firsthand demonstration of a local martial art form.
Having a professional photographer in the family paved a way for Bill to start taking interest in photography early on. In this interview, he shares more about how he discovered the community and his passion for shooting analog. Let's all welcome our newcomer of the week from USA, billseye!
Niccolò Turetta started taking photographs on film at a young age. Looking for tips on making better images, he stumbled upon the website and eventually joined the community as a motivation to further improve his craft. Let's all welcome our newcomer of the week from Torreglia, Italy, nickt!
