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!

    @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.

    Storytelling with Petzvals: Alex Timmermans and the Art of Collodion

    Not long after Alex Timmermans purchased his first digital camera at the turn of the century, he quickly realized the trappings of digital photography couldn't fulfill his personal photographic desires. He then began searching for a more challenging process — one that wasn't so predictable. His journey eventually landed him back at the roots of analogue photography, specifically employing the wet plate collodion process using original Petzval lenses. This antique photographic process found in him a renewed inspiration and has since become his passion, which is evident in both his words and his images.

    Giles Clement: The Wayfaring Tintyper

    Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.

    Testing a Yashica TLR Camera After 55 Years in Storage

    Though I am not a professional, photography is in my genes. My father was a photographer and technician in the Air Force and accumulated a number of cameras during his life. This is a story about one of those cameras, a Yashica 635 TLR. I brought the camera—after being in storage for about 55 years—back to life with a roll of Portra 160 during the golden hour at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Washington.
