Sir Charles Spencer “Charlie” Chaplin was one of the most creative and influential artists of the silent-film era. And for our weekly tribute to the great screen legend, we prepared a series of articles all related to him.

So for this rumble, our theme is soup-strainers! That’s right! We want you to submit photos showcasing your (or someone else’s) mustaches. Doesn’t have to match Sir Charlie’s. Doesn’t matter if you’re a Pai Mei, or a Tuan Ahn, a Mario, a Hogan, a Yosemite Sam, a Pringles guy, or even a Ron Jeremy… any style of any honorable ’stache level are welcome to join. The best manly mustachios will win Piggies.

Lomography Manila team’s favorite, Tuan Ahn.

Details:

  • Prize(s): 5 winners of 10 Piggies each.
  • Each winner will receive a badge for their LomoHomes.
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload Limit: 3 photos

    A Salute to the Masters: The Democratic Eye (A Tribute to William Eggleston)

    William Eggleston is one of the most important contemporary master and pioneer of color photography. In this article I write a tribute to his particular democratic way of looking around. For him "Nothing was more important or less important", and everything is worthy of being photographed. Again, he is fond of the dear old film; he said that "I don't think much about the digital world, because I am in the analog world!". Read more after the jump!

    Nothing Happens on Color Film: Street Life in Como As Seen From the Bus

    Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
