Il mio secondo rullino uscito dalla Diana F+ viene da un breve salto a Rimini.
Da neo lomografo già ho capito che mi porterò la mia fidata toy camera ovunque vado, quindi eccomi sul treno con al collo la mia plasticona. Orgoglioso di tutte le persone che mi guardano strano tentando di capire che macchinetta possiedo. Si chiederanno "ma sarà vera?"
In questa giornata di pioggia non posso che ripensare ad una delle giornate di mare che qualche settimana fa ho passato a Rimini.
Il ricordo del sole scaccia questa pioggia che ora cade su Roma, fortunatamente il ricordare è facilitato dagli scatti fatti con la mia mitica Diana.
Sulla spiaggia sono stato invaso di domande su cosa fosse quella strana macchinetta che tenevo tra le mani e sul perché non usassi solo la macchinetta digitale che comunque avevo nello zaino. Quindi con il mio solito fiume di parole mi sono lanciato a spiegare a mezzo Bagno cosa fosse la lomografia, contribuendo, spero, alla diffusione di questo modo di vivere la fotografia, almeno tra gli ombrelloni di Rimini.

Last year, Armin Amirian talked to Lomography about his motivations as an artist, his inspiration for his work and the difficulty of pursuing his passion in the society he belongs to. With that came a collection of images that reflected the concerns he and his fellow countrymen are faced with every day. The Iran-based photographer returns with insight on his new body of work.
Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.

Lomo'Instant Marrakesh, our resident romance gear, has us thinking of February nights. And what more about a midnight rendezvous is applicable to instant photography than bold strokes of light? And so it's our nightly mission to make light painting brim with personal anecdotes.
In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.
