Another milestone has been reached on beta.lomography.com!
A long time in the making, we are rapidly approaching the full relaunch of Lomography online! A lot has been happening and we now feel that it is time to take a moment and appreciate the support that you have all given us. A little bit of proof, and part of the reason that we do this blog, is that today we are proud to host more than 10,000 albums compromised of nearly 200,000 photos taken by nearly 6000 different Lomographers on the beta site!
We would like to give special thanks to our top uploaders:
Our top commentators:
Our meta specialists (photos with complete meta data)
Our top raters:
And finally, the photos! Here are a list of the top 13 photos as liked and commented on by the community!

In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.

It is Film Photography Day, and we are counting the ways the activity fuels the imagination. One photographer likens it to the soulful sound of an LP. Another chases its risk or does it with a leap of faith. But the consensus is clear: Film photography keeps people on their toes for the best possible shot.
UK based Dutch Uncles released their fourth album titled “O Shudder” earlier this year. The band is composed of Pete Broadhead on guitar,
Andy Proudfoot on drums, Robin Richards on bass guitar, and Duncan Wallis on lead vocals and piano. They've been busy on tour and have been playing in various festivals around the UK, and documented these experiences with an LC-A camera.
2015 has been another amazing year for Lomography and we wouldn’t have done it without your continuous love and support. Allow us to return the favor, our dear lomographer, by making your Christmas wish come true!
Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett sings about the frustrations, disappointments and the mundane aspects of life in her own animated and sometimes Dylan-esque style. Her debut album "Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit" was released this year and has been getting positive reviews. We tweeted about her new album and she responded to say that she loved Lomography. It was the perfect opportunity for a shoot and an interview.
