While browsing for lenses in the stores along Long Street in Cape Town, the people from Green Renaissance, a film production and media agency, met a man called The Collector and were fortunate enough to get a sneak peak of his impressive camera collection.
“The whole history of photography is quite important to the human being. It’s part of the human being.” – The Collector
[The Collector] has built up a collection of more than 1000 cameras over the years. We were lucky enough for him to invite us to his home (not open to the public) to view his impressive collection. He reaffirmed how important it is to do what you love. – Green Renaissance
Despite being only 3 minutes long, the video managed to convey the quiet passion and love The Collector has for his collection. It’s refreshing and inspiring, and there is no doubt that after watching this, we all would want to meet this charming old man.

Whether behind bushes or in front of enigmatic women, a vivacious photographer always has a trusty lens strapped to his chest. In this Lomo spread, we take inspiration from Antonioni's Cannes-winning film Blow-Up.
Even great photographers need help in making their prints as brilliant as their artistic vision. In this video, Robin Bell talks about developing and printing the pictures of David Bailey and Terence Donovan the old-fashioned way.
Joel Byron is a long time fan of Lomography who uses analog methods at his video and film production agency, BigPlus. Back in 2010, he painstakingly put together the Lomography Caterpillar Matrix video which made over 60,000 hits. This time around, he captures video footage of London with the New Petzval Lens, delivering stunning results.
