Last few weeks of college, one glorious year in Leeds, documented carefully through the rainbow coloursplashed photos of the LC- Wide! Just one more knees up please?!
The end has come, I say to myself whilst sitting on the east coast train on its way back down south for a summer back at home… It was one glorious year, I can tell you that much. I get out my packs of photos hot off the press, no less than half an hour before boarding my last train home. The Mount Kimbie soundtrack is ringing in my ears as I peruse the data of what I can only say occurred in a blur.
The one thing that isn’t a blur are my colourful jewel-encrusted photos. Multiple exposures tell funny stories, like the time we adopted a plant and named him Samson, bringing him home in the early hours of the morning, and planting him just outside our door for safekeeping. Or the time when we bought a blue raspberry slushy, and had to share it between all twelve of us. The time that friend spent hours on her make-up for her to turn around and smile with the make up of a clown instead, or when Ben the Friend DJ-ed out of a car. Not to mention the BBQ we botched together in the park on results day, or EVEN the time when we stole the letters off of the car parks sign and rearranged them to make new words for a good few hours of entertainment. And then you couldn’t forget the other night when we created new faces out of shoe boxes and wandered up and down the stairs freaking each other out.
There they all are these LC-Wide memories cradled in my little paper envelope.

Last week, I received the strangest thing through my letterbox. It was a postcard with this photograph on 1 side. The photo is of me sitting by the sea whilst I was on vacation last year. But I have literally no idea who took this shot – That’s why I came here, to ask for your help on my search for my mysterious photographer and to try and get to bottom of the riddle they wrote me. Please help me if you can!
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.

Chloé Vollmer-Lo's photos speak for themselves. Every image, whether it's a portrait or a seemingly simple snapshot of a street alley, tells a story. The Paris-based photographer tested the Petzval lens recently, and the results, as expected, speak volumes. She talks about her experience as a freelance photographer - and with the Petzval lens - in this exclusive interview.
"You put your camera around your neck in the morning along with putting on your shoes, and there it is, an appendage of the body that shares your life with you," said Dorothea Lange, the icon whose birthdate we celebrate today, May 26.
