A series of photographs depicting colonial houses/buildings; life and flora in the beautiful, lush and wide expanse that caught my attention at the old Seletar Camp on the northern area of Singapore.
Old Seletar Camp was formerly a British airbase. Hence many of the roads are named after their namesakes in Britain – Oxford Street; Swallow Street; Knights Bridge; Piccadilly Circus; Lambeth Walk; Park Lane and so on. Up to recently, it was used by the Singapore Armed Forces. Civilians and foreign expats could rent the houses as residences. However, most of these residents had been relocated to other locations and many of these old colonial houses had either been demolished or scheduled for demolish in the near future. Plans are now underway to redevelop this beautiful place into another commercial space (an aerospace hub). And many of the trees and buildings you can find here may be gone by 2009.
Therefore, to keep this forgotten place in my memories, I made a trip down and try to get as much as I can before it’s all gone.
Nostalgia, intimacy, and urgent yet understated sensuality – are elements that are evidently part of Asher Moss’ work. Moss’ “Models in the Morning” series caught the attention of many, including the folks here at Lomography. The resolution: let Moss try out a few Lomography cameras, and wait for the visual intimacy to begin. In this first segment of LomoAmigo Galleries featuring Asher Moss, we present to you the photographer’s shots using the Diana F+.
How incredible that a tiny thing as a camera can depict the vast empire of nature and city life! And peppered among the tall and wide views are people, humble and pint-sized from a distance. See how four photographers portrayed this astonishing contrast.
Alfred Eisenstaedt was one of Life Magazine's greatest photographers, known for his ability to immortalize the storytelling moment of many public events in history. To write this tribute to him, I chose a subject that he photographed in different places and times: card players in public places. The photos in this article were taken at the Patronal Feast of my city Como, during a series of buraco's lessons held by a local card players club.
We first came across Ryu Voelkel while he was shooting for his photography book about the World Cup in Brazil. His use of Aerochrome Film for the project especially caught our attention. Now the Berlin-based sports photographer has finished his book and is ready for the next challenge: testing the Petzval at a football match.
This article is dedicated to the French street photographer Raymond Depardon and his wonderful series depicting people communicating with mobile phones from all over the world. For this tribute, I compiled my own series of photos of people using their mobile phones or tablets in the city of Como. Take a look!
In 1958 the great photographer Robert Frank took a series of images of New York's street life with a Leica camera from a bus window, as in these series of photos that I took in my city Como with my trusty Lomo LC-A loaded with a Kodak Tri-X film. This is a tribute to a great camera and to a great photographer! Read more after the jump!
Leslie Lindell is a Californian photographer based in the San Francisco Bay Area. She shoots photos of regular people doing regular things, capturing life and lifestyle. A cookbook which contains photographs that she took won the 2014 IACP Cookbook of the Year award. That same year, Lindell attended the 51st Shoshone Bannock Powwow Festival at the Fort Hall Reservation just outside of Pocatello, Idaho and shot some colorful pictures with the Petzval Lens.
Hundreds of thousands of photographs have been shared in the community for the past twelve months and we cannot help but commend those that really stood out and captured everyone's attention.

This is tribute to the Farm Security Administration photographer, Jack Delano, and his photographic series dedicated to barkers. For this article, I chose a series of photos I took this year at the traditional Easter Fair in my city, Como, using a classic rangefinder camera loaded with a roll of black and white film.
An ongoing show at the George Eastman House in New York puts the spotlight on a collection of photographs that "explore uses of gardens and how humans cultivate the landscapes that surround them," from the time the medium was invented up to the present.
