My most favorite thing to do for a Christmas vacation is to leave Reykjavik and spend some time in a cabin. Nature, lovely company, great food, board games, and my camera...this is the best combination for a great vacation!
Luckily there are hundreds and hundreds of cabins or so-called summerhouses in Iceland. It’s not a problem to rent one. The rent isn’t expensive and if you share it with your friends it’s actually really cheap. The cabins are equipped very well. It is normal to find a dishwasher and a jacuzzi or sometimes even an internet connection there.
Usually cabins are situated in beautiful places near lakes or surrounded by mountains. Last year we spent our vacation in a tiny cabin located in Svínadalur. It was extremely cold and windy, so we stayed indoors most of the time – safe and cozy.
I really hope that we’ll be able to go to the cabin this year again. It’s a great way to relax and spend some time with the ones you love. Actually, it is the most popular way to spend a weekend vacation in Iceland and I certainly understand why.
Photo travelogues are often sprightly, the forms defined and the colors sharp. Réka Koti has a completely different interpretation. A location is a basis for experiments. Nature is a double-exposure detail or a nebular extension of her model’s frock. Branches and leaves are blurred to look like paint strokes. The outcome is mysterious, and Lomography can’t help asking: What is the alchemy behind these dusky pictures?
This article is dedicated to the British photojournalist and sport photographer Dennis Oulds, and to one of my favorite home games, Subbuteo Table Football. Here are some photos I took during a local tournament in Como. Take a look!
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.
As a game art designer, creating worlds and characters from his imagination is of second nature for Chen Chao. However, drawing with light and recording once-in-a-lifetime moments with his trusty analog cameras seem more magical, on a personal level. His LomoHome, which is filled with portraits of beloved subjects, most especially that of his little boy Liangliang, speaks volumes about his eagerness to preserve fleeting memories through photography.
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.
This article is dedicated to Leonard Freed's important reportage of the difficult and dangerous daily work of New York policemen, published in his 1980 book. Here I'll show you photos of public games organized by the various police forces of my hometown Como during last year's Christmas festivities. Take a look!

It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
Here’s an opportunity to join a multi-talented, life loving, and hard working team, and conquer the web with us! We are looking for a smart and proactive individual, combined with great people skills, and strong community, sales and marketing focus.
My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.
