Miami better get ready because Lomography is coming to town. We're sending one of our crew to do some scouting and projects in Miami for a few days. So we figured why not catch up with our Miami branch of the Lomographamily. Let's play!
Hello Lomographamily en Miami! We wanted to let you know, we’re sending a Lomography secret agent to hang out with you. That’s right, the first week of April brings the heat of spring and the saturation of color. Lomography is sending a representative to Miami to make friends and snap some shutters. We searched for a colorful spot to meetup, and there was no shortage of areas. We decided that a relaxed stroll through the Wynwood Arts District would suit everyone just fine.
So, we’ll meet at 5:30 PM in front of Panther Coffee on the corner of NW 2nd Ave. and NW24th St. Once we’ve gathered, exchanged names, and earned cool points with each other, we’ll head out for the Wynwood Walls. We’ve seen a glimps of this space and can’t wait to take it all in with a Sprocket Rocket or maybe a Spinner 360.
After the Wynwood Walls, we’ll walk around the Arts District and discover what new urban art has popped up. Our man Cameron will have some loaner Lomography cameras and film, so you can test out a few of our newer beauties. We can’t wait to meet you, geek out, and share ideas. You Miami folks are about to get a cattle prode-sized jolt to your inspirado. Let’s do this!
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
In the third and final installment of his Russian love story, Herr Willie recalls some of the most memorable experiences from his trips to post-Soviet Russia, including traveling aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway and shooting with the La Sardina for Lomography on assignment, and waxes nostalgic about all the amazing people he had met.
We are very excited to introduce the latest addition to the Lomo’Instant family, the Lomo’Instant Boston Edition. The Boston only made it to first base when it appeared in our Kickstarter campaign but by the raucous applause we got from you guys, it’s in it for the homerun!
What comes to mind when you think of Boston? Maybe it's the Red Sox, or maybe it's Baked Beans? With our newest competition to celebrate the release of the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition, we want to know what Boston means to you. Even if you've never been to Boston — no problem! We want to see your best shots that represent Boston to you!
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
