Driver less trains and stations that look like the setting of sci-fi movie, welcome to Copenhagen Metro lines M1 & M2...
After a relaxing day in Christianshavn, I decided to take the metro back to the hostel. Taking the escalator down into the depths of Christianshavn Station I was first wowed by its sterile stainless steel interior, feeling like the 80’s sci-fi movie Total Recall, if you remember it. Getting of at the next stop it looked just the same as the first one, the third one too. I soon realized all stations here looked exactly alike and quickly became bored with it all.
Getting back on the train, to go to another station where I could switch from the M1 line to something a bit cozier and with stations that’s got character, I suddenly got a chill, realizing I was at the absolute front of the train speeding through the tunnel without a driver. It’s madness! Madness, I tell you! Someone has been looking at too many sci-fi movies and it isn’t me…
Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!

As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
This time we went up North and discovered that our Petzval lens has made it all the way to Scandinavia, Denmark. Enter with us the world of Swirly Danish Portraitism and meet Dann Nørgaard, a photographer from Copenhagen who captures the depth of every glance.
