This is a little tribute to the ones we love most.
You know who… that one that supports you most. That person that waits for you to scan the images and critizises the right and the wrong ones. That who stands still ‘til you have that perfect picture. That one who understand you need time for this. That one that is more than a muse. That one who bought you your first camera and that has been supporting you since then. In my case, it’s vasvas. She bought me the first Supersampler.
The first picture (it’s a pity I lost the negative) I took with it was of her, and it’s been like that since then. I even ask her to marry me after a wonderful trip lomo session to Brussels. Maybe you already know vasvas as she is in half of the pictures I shoot. I owe her many apologies and also this post.
I hope you love your beloved one as much as I do love vasvas. Because she is one of the reasons I’m in this Lomoworld. Because this is a way to show the things, the places and the people I love. That is how I understand Lomography. The perfect way to show your own world.

This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!
If you loved the Petzval Lens, we have Joseph Petzval to thank for. The mathematician/inventor/physicist was born in Hungary, but spent most of his life in Vienna. As a tribute, we visited some of the most significant places in his life, armed with our cameras and the New Lomography Petzval Art Lens. Watch the video below!
With your overwhelming support, we have run out of Belair Instant Backs! We'll restock it in April, but don't worry because the Belair Instant Camera is readily available to satisfy your instant cravings!
This is a tribute to a founding father of photography, the American photographer Paul Strand. In 1955, he released a book about Luzzara, a small town in central Italy, in collaboration with the famous neo-realist screenwriter Cesare Zavattini. To pay homage to this great artist, this summer I personally went to Luzzara to take a series of photos that shows the changes in this little town 60 years after the work of Strand was published.
This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!
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, little 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.
