We've hit quite a milestone with our 500,000 likes on Facebook! To celebrate this joyous occasion, here's a toast to every Lomographer's long-time model and sometimes muse -- you!
Self-portraits are the bread & butter and go-to test shot of every Lomographer. It’s become something of a second nature to us, akin to riding a bike, or even breathing. As we celebrate Lomography getting 500,000 Facebook likes, it’s only fitting that we pay tribute to our trademark move!
For this rumble, we want to see your self-portraits. Let us reiterate that we want self-portraits, not photos taken by your friend, your mom, or your cat. For a celebration of this magnitude, we need a prize that would fit the occasion. How does a 20th Anniversary Edition Lomo LC-A+ sound? Interested? Submit your photos today!

Most, if not all, of the photographs in Keis Iguchi's LomoHome were printed using traditional darkroom processes. He likens film photography to using cassette tape and relies on his favorite combination of LC-A and Ferrania Solaris 800 in creating evocative images. In this interview, our Newcomer of the Week from Tokyo Japan shares more about his affinity for analog photography.
From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal.
