Get out there, with your eyes/viewfinders protected and take the most amazing photos in your lifetime – as the next transit of the second planet falls over a century from now! Who knows, we could still be around. But let’s not take any chances and capture some memories tonight.

How luminous even a planetarium is. Just imagine the real-life and all its possibilities.

Are you already part of an astronomy club? We’d love to hear from you! Why not even nominate yourself as our President and organize outings and stargazing nights?

Get creative Lomographers! We’d love to see photos taken with:
Diana F+ , Lubitel 166+, Hole-On-Ex Paper Pinhole Camera, Lomo LC-Wide, Fisheye No. 2

  • So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    Photo Stories: Children of the Desert by eleonorepairet

    My family and I were in Udaipur (India) for a wedding ceremony and decided to travel around the area. We went to Jaisalmer, one of the most gorgeous cities I have ever seen (located on the border with Pakistan) and decided to stop by the remote Thar Desert, which is where these pictures were taken.

    A Look at Photographs on Auction at Lempertz

    Two days from now, Lempertz will hold a sale of 195 photographic prints. The lineup is as varied as the history of photography itself. An 1856 print by an anonymous photographer is in the same group as a top-valued Joseph Szabo shot. A deceptively simple shot of a flower vase is joined by the complex textures of Lucien Hervé. Take a look at the fascinating mix.
