Boris will start (and end) his journey in the Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam with desibel. He’ll also end in Amsterdam after which he’ll probably take a vacation from err, being on vacation…. Right… Anyway, Boris planned his trip in such a way that the Lomographers that are hosting him don’t have to travel too far. That way they can even grab a cup of coffee together or it’ll save them some shipping cost.

Initially in the original article Boris had the plan to stay with every host for 2 weeks. But since we had so many awesome applications he decided to just go and see every single one of you guys! So it’s 47 hosts with 1 week each.

What do we expect from the hosts?

  1. Take good care of Boris. He’s royalty you know!
  2. Take your favorite roll of film from the fridge and start snapping. Make sure to mind the theme the previous Lomographer gave you!
  3. Become a pal of Boris on his LomoHome, follow him on facebook + twitter and during the ‘week of fame’ make sure that everyone knows he’s staying with you.
  4. After his stay, fill out the Departure Card that you received. If you lost it (we mailed it to you!) you could also find it here.
  5. Send the Departure Card and the roll of film to the Lomography Gallery Store Amsterdam at the Herengracht 298, 1016 BX in Amsterdam. Lomography will develop the pictures and write a cool adventure based on your departure card.
  6. Think of a cool theme for the host that’s after you and pass it on!
  7. Get an appointment with the next Lomographer – check the travelling list – and make sure Boris gets to him or her safely. By mail or even better, in person!

Every single adventure that Boris will have will be transformed into an article. You’ll be able to read about it right here in the Lomography magazine.
Want to stay up to date about Boris and his adventures? Follow him on Facebook, twitter or on his own LomoHome.

Got a blog? Writer for a magazine? Have an illegal radiostation in your basement? Give Boris all the attention and publicity he deserves and maybe he’ll end up with Matthijs van Nieuwkerk….

Secretly, Boris is just a Lomo LC-A+ who has become worldfamous for his amazing features: automatic exposure, extensive ISO range and the possibility of multiple and longer exposures. Do you want your own Boris a.k.a. Lomo LC-A+? Order him now in the online shop!

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

    Newcomer of the Week: fmonteiro

    As a professional photography graduate, Fernando never goes out without carrying at least one camera and treats it as an integral part of his body. Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
