Artist Rita Botelho upcycled and designed these neat looking salt & pepper shakers, which were sold in the Museum of Modern Art. It isn’t for sale anymore but that’s perfectly fine, as we all have a surplus of film canisters we can use, don’t we?
Just get a matching set of canisters and a small drill. Carefully drill the P and S letters on the lid just like the photo and you’re all set! When one of your friends come over and compliment you on your little creation, just nod knowingly, stroke your chin, and say ’that’s art.’

This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski.

Sometimes when taking pictures I get addressed by strangers either because of my cameras or because they don't want me to shoot something they claim they have responsibility for. But having the police on my back was a new experience.
Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.
"Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter" was officially launched last Wednesday, March 18. The opening night screening was held at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) and was documented using a Fisheye camera. Here's how the night went.

And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
