Spotlight on the City Guide Vienna

The first city guide from Lomography guarantees you a truly alternative experience as intriguing and eccentric as Vienna itself! Made for Lomographers by Lomographers, far from listing the normal tourist traps, it’s a melting pot of 244 photo illustrated, insider tips for you to use as inspiration for your own snapshot adventures. Plus, it’s a dream factory for the eyes! Crammed with 1,400 previously unpublished Lomographs, prepare to be awestruck by the cream of the Lomography Archive that has been lovingly poured into every single page. And yet, Vienna is just the start of this whole adventure: many more Lomography City Guides will follow to make us Lomographers happier than ever.

The First Anti-Tourist City Guide?

Don’t get the idea that the city guide is just for tourists. Even if you never set foot on Austrian soil or nibble on a Wiener Schnitzel, you’ll feel like you know the place intimately by the time you’ve flicked through the city guide’s pages.

It’s bursting with the stuff that makes a Lomographer’s index finger twitch – everyday folk, accidental art, coffee houses, strudel, waltzes, night rambles, hidden haunts, cemeteries, fun fairs, hotel bars and the Vienna Boy’s Choir thrown in for good measure. The tips are personal and that’s what makes it so illuminating.

A street lamp that could easily go unnoticed by the crowd suddenly morphs into a piece of art and Frau Gerti’s dog becomes the star of the photo of the year.

    From Russia with Love: Motorama Shoots with the La Sardina Splendour

    I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
