We broke out the old slide projector and asked our community members to show us some of their favorite slides! The result was an evening of popcorn, beer, and some great artwork.
After getting come refreshments the crew set to work very carefully picking out slides they would like to project. We had three very different sets of work to view. First up was a batch of Kodachrome! As some of you may know back in 2009 Kodachrome was discontinued so this was a real treat.
Next up was a set of slides all about the art of rock and roll. We got to hear some really great stories about each photograph and get a glimpse of what being a musician means.
Last up was a collection of old family photos from between 1960 and 1980. It was great to see how the colors have shifted on the slides with time. Everyone brought some really amazing stuff to share and we hope to have another slide show party very soon!
We asked some of New York’s hottest designers to lend their talent in designing some of our La Sardina DIY cameras, and we are very excited to share their masterpieces with you. Join us and see their reimagined La Sardinas along with the photos that they shot using the fun, easy-to-use cameras.
Even great photographers need help in making their prints as brilliant as their artistic vision. In this video, Robin Bell talks about developing and printing the pictures of David Bailey and Terence Donovan the old-fashioned way.

A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!
The new Petzval Lens has proven itself a master of close-up shots and soulful portraits time and time again. Now some of our talented community members have stepped it up a notch and aimed the Petzval at city-scapes. From snow-capped pedestrians, couples chatting in parks, bustling markets, or people waiting to get on the metro - the beautiful banalities of city life are covered in these eloquent shots. Scroll through this gallery we've put together just for you to get a taste of the Petzval's urban potential!
Two days from now, Lempertz will hold a sale of 195 photographic prints. The lineup is as varied as the history of photography itself. An 1856 print by an anonymous photographer is in the same group as a top-valued Joseph Szabo shot. A deceptively simple shot of a flower vase is joined by the complex textures of Lucien Hervé. Take a look at the fascinating mix.
