Burning Man Rumble

8

Not for the faint of heart, but perfect with those with a burning passion. Burning Man has become a yearly pilgrimage of sorts for eccentrics, kindred spirits, and curious travelers. Bring goggles!

What was once a small gathering of people has turned into a 48,000 strong community that perplexes those on the outside. What is Burning Man? The event is described as an experiment in community, art, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance. Kinda like Lomography, right?

With that in mind, we want to see your best photos of Burning Man – from the artsy culture behind it, the crazy hi-jinks that happen, to the grand finale of the effigy burning down to its last embers. We have an aptly themed prize for the best photo: a Diana F+ Sahara that will accompany you in the scorching desert heat.

Send those photos in!

    How many people are registered on lomography around the world? and your asking for those 48,000 people who attend the burning man to enter this comp? alienating the rest of us who have no chance to attend? What a genius idea!

    @chappelow i totally agree ,especially when theirs 6 Diana competitions currently running which can only be entered by people in Singapore and who can get Lomography Gallery Store Singapore and who enter all 6 challenges .

    @aoifeodwyer Yes, I have seen all the comps for Diana Singapore marathon. Excellent if you are in Singapore but yet again, if you are not in Singapore, or you didnt go to the burning man fest, it leaves the rest of us with nothing to enter. Another great competition idea from our friends at Lomo.

    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.
