Katie Cooke is an artist and photographer who mainly uses pinhole cameras when taking photos. She comes up with these mysterious images that seem to tell a story. Find out more after the break.
Katie Cooke, an artist from Scotland, has come up with different collections for her pinhole photography. She makes use of the traditional and alternative processes for printing photos. Her interest in pinhole photograph started one summer when she was stuck at home while recuperating from a hip replacement. It was hard for her to use her crutches and handle her SLR camera at the same time so she thought of using a pinhole to take photos so she wouldn’t have to hold a camera in her hand.
She sees pinhole photography as how we often build our impression on someone. The exposures that go on for several minutes or even hours can be likened to how we get a glimpse of someone’s personality. We do it over time – not a split second. For some years now, Katie Cooke has been working on portraits and experimenting with movement and stillness. Unlike objects, people create small movements in a span of a minute even when trying to keep still. These are the little things – the quiet conversations — that she tries to capture with her pinhole camera

Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the New Petzval Lens 85 recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the New Petzval Lens 85 - in this exclusive interview.
Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
Aside from photography, newcomer Dmitri Berenger enjoys a multitude of hobbies including gardening, watching movies, and discovering music. In this interview, he talks about his photographic style, his inspirations, choosing film cameras over digital gear, and many more.
