While browsing through my liked photos I rediscovered some gems: a guy next to an alpaca, Batman in Sydney, a girl playing the tuba, flying dogs, lens flares, a boy that looks like Richie Tenenbaum, skateboards, blurs, beaches all around the world and much more.
Over the years I’ve made many galleries for the magazine – usually my approach is to make database queries; like: most liked photos in December by people from Japan, look at the results and create a gallery. Not this time – but let’s start with the gallery itself:
This time I looked at my likes. So this is a totally subjective selection – it’s not about showing the best photos. It’s about rediscovering. While browsing through my likes I had to think of Robin Sloan's tab essay Fish. It’s about the difference between liking something on the internet and loving something on the internet – his conclusion is: to love is to return.
The gallery above is about that: I returned to my liked photos. You can do so as well, go to your home and click on likes – for example my likes can be found at www.lomography.com/homes/recurving/likes (just replace recurving with your username). Put the link to the rediscovered photos in the comments, I’d be very interested to see them!
As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.

Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
