Short but unforgettable sweet journey. Somaemul means tiny island, from 'so' which means little and 'Do' as island.
It’s a tiny island, called Somaemul-do where only 34 people are living now. Korean letter ‘So’ means ‘Little/Tiny’ and ‘Do’ means ‘Island’ so ‘Somaemul-do’ is ‘Little Island of Maemul’ It’s far from Seoul, capital of S.Korea almost 4~5 hours by automobile but many amateur/professional photographers visit there because of the beautiful scene & peaceful atmosphere. It’s a small place but very crowded for the holidays & summer vacation in Korea.
I spend there a great moment with an old Lomography friend in last autumn. If you’d like to stay there more than 1 night, lots of different residences are available in this island!

The young and talented AM tried out the New Russar+ lens while traveling in Japan with his father. He talks about his experience and shares the sights from his journey in this Lomography Magazine exclusive.
My dad and I have been riding our bicycles for as long as I can remember. We had no camera back then, so I only have the pictures from our recent rides. Each ride to the island of Khortitsa today is like a reunion with my childhood and my father's care.

Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful.

As a game art designer, creating worlds and characters from his imagination is of second nature for Chen Chao. However, drawing with light and recording once-in-a-lifetime moments with his trusty analog cameras seem more magical, on a personal level.
