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

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.
