The Essen Taste of Lomography: LomoFood Competition


Essen, A taste Magazine, sits down the table with Lomography again. While sipping hot tea and tasting delicious pastries, guess what we've managed to come up with?

There is no use in denying it. Food is an essential part of our daily life and culture.

We worship it in any form, color, dish, and taste. Starting from appetizers, the roast recipes from our grandmothers and aunts, all the way down to the ones we invented just so that we won’t have an empty stomach.

Essen I A taste Magazine, inspired by the beauty of food, proposed itself as one of the first online magazines that is able to delve across the culinary world, not only sharing interesting recipes, but also exploring the absolute aesthetics.

All over the world, food is the main ingredient of every culture, able to unite and identify people. This is also shown in the huge amount of pictures that immortalize food in every form and aspect from our Lomographic archive or anywhere in the world.

Get inspired by these shots

Now, what we want is just to see you in the kitchen!
Choose anything yummy to shot. It could be a simple table set, your most successful creams Brulè ever, the turkey you’ve cooked for Thanksgiving, or the makings of your favourite dish. Basically, we want to know all the aspects of food through your photos.

Get inspired by these shots
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload limit: 5 photos.
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)


Plus, Essen I A taste Magazine will dedicate a photo shoot to all the photographers and images selected.

Essen I A taste Magazine and Lomography are already frothing at the mouth with anticipation, so wherever you are and whatever is your culinary tradition, run to the kitchen and make us starve with your pictures.

Let’s start the LomoCooking!

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new

    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 won't be reflected on 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.

    Creative Vision, Personified:The Community's Most Creative Lomographers

    As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

    Summer Hot Spots: Blaavand, Denmark (Part Two)

    When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
