Untitled Film Still Used in NYFF 2012 Poster

5

One of the world’s most celebrated film festivals, The New York Film Festival has just concluded last Sunday. But while it’s all about the motion pictures, did you know that this year’s promotional poster is one of Cindy Sherman’s photographs?

A 17-day event, the New York Film Festival highlights the best new films the world has to offer, including films by noted filmmakers as well as fresh newcomers. And over the years, its promotional poster has played an integral role. Not only that, but it has also become a medium for noted artists to showcase their talent.

And this year, in celebration of the NYFF’s 50th year, the Film Society of Lincoln Center chose to showcase one of Cindy Sherman's celebrated Untitled Film Stills in its poster.

If we recall, Untitled Film Stills is the series that helped Sherman achieve international recognition. It is a body of work that consists of 69 photographs with Sherman depicting the various roles and clichés of women on film.

Given the series’ impact and influence, it is only understandable that FSLC has chosen it to represent the film festival’s milestone, don’t you think?

    Behind the Picture: The Fifties in 3D

    In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    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.
