Summer solstice is here, marking the longest day of the year and the official start of the summer season in the Northern Hemisphere! So while you eager beavers soak up those rays, here's a playlist to keep you company throughout the day!
For those unfamiliar, the summer solstice occurs when the tilt of Earth’s axis is most inclined towards the Sun. This happens twice in a year, one occurring in the northern hemisphere and one in the southern hemisphere.
The world Solstice comes from the Latin words sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still). Understandably, the day when summer solstice occurs is also the day that experiences the longest period of daylight.

Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
This article is dedicated to Serge Moulinier, a largely unknown French photographer who won one of the most important prizes in France with a book on Greek architecture. Strangely, few information can be found on the Internet about this great photographer whose work had also been published in an important essay written by the famous John Szarkowski, former Director of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
C.S Muncy is a New York City-based freelance photojournalist and a fellow LomoAmigo who tested and reviewed the LomoChrome Turquoise film. The rolls of film were put to good use; the resulting shots were simply stunning.
