Upcoming features:

Please bear with us because some features may take a bit longer. But our team is high on caffeine and working like crazy to bring you the best. If there is anything else that would make your experience on Lomography.com better please let us know in the comments sections of the blog!

Lab: We’re working on an easier way for you to upload and organize your photos.

LomoWall: We know you like to build walls with the best photos so we are working hard on bringing this feature back

User Blog: We want to know what you are up to. So put finger to keyboard and inform us of everything that crosses your mind.

Oktokino: Lomography and motion pictures – a sweet combination. This will take a while, but rest assured it will return with even better functionality.

Help Us Hit 5 Million!

We’re well on our way to having 5 Million public photos in the Lomography community and we’re thrilled! Once we reach this magic number we will have a week long special offer as a token of our gratitude, so help us get there. One easy way would be to pick up your photos from your old LomoHome account. Simply login to your old LomoHome account or register for a new LomoHome and then connect your account in the settings!

    This site is improving every day... Great job guys! And I still wish there was a world map with the homes of lomographers on it... And on the user blog (as in our homes) it would be great to enable html language... Ho, and in our homes, add the possibility to upload animated gifs for multilens cameras... Still... Congrats for the work achieved so far !

    Everything is great and you're making it even greater!
    My biggest wish for the lab is the possibility to filter and search for tags in my own pictures.

    The stream would be even better if the photos were in the same order as the albums.
    Because sometimes I upload pictures to older albums but don't want it to be between the newer pictures.

    Creative Vision, Personified:The Community's Most Creative Lomographers

    As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.

    LomoAmigos Yougofirst Shoot With The LomoKino In Their New Snowboard Movie

    Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
