We met in the museum of natural science, the LC-A+ and me. A workshop by Lomography Gallery Store Berlin which had taken place there united us. After ten minutes we were in love and the first roll of film was shot.
Lots of exciting motifs – huge dinosaurs, a primevil elephant, numberless sceletts of the oddest creatures which lived once upon a time, stuffed animals, pickeld fishes – cast a spell over us. Like a child, I got into a sensual orgy and couldn’t take my finger from the trigger.
Holding again an analogue camera in my hand after my long lasting digital flirt was a great feeling! Especially the result of our first meeting impressed me: The exposure of Lomography CN 400 Films worked out optimally with the LC-A+ although there were dark lighting conditions in the museum. Many motifs are quite pin sharp as well whereas I fixated the camera only with my hand.
The multiple exposure pictures fascinate me the most. The surreal charm of drunken skulls and flying skeletons of humans and monkeys reminds me of Shakespeare’s Hamlet and whets the appetite for new experiments.
I left with prickling in my belly and a big anticipation for the next meeting after hours the place which we first met.

Joel Byron is a long-time fan of Lomography and uses analog methods in his work at his video and film production agency BigPlus. Back in 2010 he painstakingly put together the Lomography Caterpillar Matrix video which had over 60,000 hits! We lent Joel a Petzval lens and asked him to capture some video footage of London. The results were pretty stunning.
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.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
