Cemeteries make nice Lomographic motives. This is a huge public cemetery in Cologne. Usually cemeteries are places where you don't take a stroll. It's a place to find peace and to come to rest (in both senses of the word). But Melaten is a bit different. It is constructed like a park. There is a lot of green, trees, meadows, bushes and the graves and gravestones adapt somehow into the landscape. What is so special about this cemetery are its magnificent and elaborate gravestones decorated with larger than life angels and other figures - the Death for example.

Around every corner you can discover new figures, some look peaceful, others strange or vicious. Melaten is not only interesting for people who are interested in landscape architecture (haha!) or undertaking. It creates a very special atmosphere and you are allowed to take pictures there – at least I haven’t found a sign that told me not to.
These photographs not only provide a rare glimpse to the Russian Empire as it was more than a hundred years ago, they also are outstanding examples of a now obsolete photography technique. Learn the story behind Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii's photographs and how they were taken after the cut!
The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.
Aside from the fact that Ubud is a must-visit tourist spot in Bali, it is also the perfect place to relax and get inspired. There, you’ll see and feel something different. Staying there for a month in 2012 made me discover good places to visit. If ever you'll be in Bali for a holiday, don't forget to visit Ubud. Now, I shall take you on a quick visit to this town!
There are a lot of types of film out there and it can be a little intimidating. Don't get nervous! We are here to help and this workshop is the perfect way to get all the film knowledge you'll need to get started.
We are always hunting for creative ideas on how to open up new shooting possibilities and it doesn’t get any better than when we discover something simple which works like a charm right away. Recently, the idea was raised that perhaps the Diana+ Splitzer would be compatible with the Lomo’Instant – Lo and behold, it is!
Throwing chemicals, fire, and scratching emulsion are just a few ways of experimenting with film. But there's another process that completely destroys it (or, if you're lucky, creates something amazing), that is as spastic as a drunken man staggering his way home after a night at the pub - literally.
And it all comes down to darkness.

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
