Not a massive ski resort but the park is amazing (rock hands optional).
This is Les deux Alpes in the French Alps. The resort itself is a perfectly nice place. Not too posh, not too dirty…just right. The village is at an altitude of 1650m and its highest point is 3600m. Whilst it is not as good as the three Alps due to its smaller size its still pretty good. I found that it got a bit boring towards the end of a week as you can do all the runs.
Where this resort comes in to its own is at the snow park. Its one of Europe’s best snow parks and it is rad to the power of sick. There is a half pipe, several grinds and boxes, various size kickers and some of the biggest big airs going. We spent our time at this park and never got board (PUNPUN). Sadly most of the images of me and my friends busting tricks are on digital so i cant put them up. I assure you they were really rad, so rad a girl got pregnant just from watching.
For après ski its pretty standard, there are a few nice places such as the Rummery (sells bottles of rum, get the toffee one its tasty) and the Yeti. Also there are some very good restaurants there. My favourite was L’Table it sold some of the tastiest lamb this side of the Mississippi. Be warned though, it is truly expensive. A normal coffee can cost as much as £4.50 and beer was about £6 pounds a pint. Even worse they don’t fill the glass properly so you feel cheated by a further 30p. I remember a bought two sandwiches and a coke in a bog standard take away and it was £17!!!!!!! They must have seen me coming.
We have moved towards an age built on convenience. Even fashion has followed this social pattern. There is now an option to dress without premeditated effort. Roomy shirts, versatile jeans, and soft shoes conform to our ever-busy schedules. On the other hand, a vintage sensibility is about polish. The lesson from men of yore? Tailored fit makes all the difference.
In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is. Neither are his views on photography straitlaced, as this exciting interview with Lomography proves.
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!
The name Michael McNelis might not ring a bell, but his photograph taken by one of the leading sociological photographers of the 20th century is a sobering look at the lamentable conditions that working children faced several decades ago.
For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.

Ladies and gentlemen, fellow Lomographers, the time is ripe for us to present you with a new mystery product. But we're not giving anything much away this time, just a few hints and clues to keep you on your toes.
Like a cluster of cherry blossoms, the temples in Kyoto can stop visitors in their tracks. These people assume the pose of a statue, a camera dangling from their neck and hands. On a first visit especially, the impulse to photograph every angle is constant. The Kinkaku-ji Temple and the torii-lined Fushimi Inari-Taisha are always packed; one would think the tourists would hurry along. But really, many are busy taking snatches of Kyoto with them.
