Finally! The first LomoRoadShow is here! Saturday the 21st of April will be the kick off and it will take place in Utrecht during the In-Fashion event!
In-fashion is a brand spanking new fashion event in Utrecht, the Netherlands. 2012 will be the very first edition of this awesome new event that centers around the story of fashion items or the designer. This way the event hopes to bridge the gap between consumers and designers. On Saturday the 21st of April you can see the work of young designers in Hotel Dom, Utrecht.

What the hell is Lomography?
We’re starting off with an introduction to Lomography. You’ll get to know all the inns and outs of Lomography, the history, philosophy, cameras, community and the website.
Diana F+ Camera Workshop
Everyone will be getting a world famous Diana F+ on loan to shoot images in style. You’ll also get a 10% discount voucher for the online shop. During this workshop, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the Diana F+ and how to use her as a beginner.
Street Fashion LomoWalk
Now that we know everything about the Diana F+ we’ll venture out into the city! We’ll be doing a LomoWalk through Utrecht and experiment with shooting fashionable content. Through the viewfinder of the Diana F+, we’ll be checking out people and fashion, patterns and colors and mixing and matching them.
Afterwards, the LomoRoadShow crew will be taking all the films and have them developed at the LomoLab. As soon as they’re back everyone will be getting a link emailed to download their pictures. Of course we’ll also write an awesome recap of this event that you’ll be able to read in the magazine!

In more ways than one, Lomography is an art form as much as it is an effective tool to communicate. This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin. Read further to learn more about the project and event.

The 2015 UEFA Champions League Final will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on June 6. It is a place full of history and is also the only football stadium with a blue track course. Some say it is the most beautiful stadium in the world, and I totally agree with them. But then agai,n I might be biased because it is the home court of my favorite team, Hertha BSC Berlin—my blue-white bloodline.
I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.

July 20, 1969 marked one of the most historic events in the history of mankind: on this day, the Apollo 11 crew finally landed on lunar soil. It was the culmination of a decade's worth of hard work, one that was witnessed by the whole world and remembered for the rest of time.
The journey of the Lomo'Instant is a tale of unpacking, dating, ghost spotting, and so much more.
