It’s always nice to stumble upon works featuring analogue photos that can just make you do a double back. Well, it gets better when you see that that artist is a fellow Lomographer! Show some love for photographer and analogue enthusiast Crisitna Altieri after the jump.
If the name *Cristina Altieri* doesn’t ring a bell then you should probably get to know the name now. Aside from the fact that she shoots mainly on analogue cameras, Cristina also has this amazing series that plays with light and shadows using the human body as sort of a backdrop. Her photographs always leave something out of the frame like the faces since she believes that those parts of the body are intimate and that makes them all the more real.
Altieri shoots on film and it’s evident in the warm tones of her lo-fi photographs. She shoots her subjects with an intimate approach that results in amazing portraits. Cristina is also part of our Lomography community using the handle @crisitinaaltieri. Her dreamy photographs whether on 35mm or Polaroid film are simple yet engaging.
Cristina Altieri is a photographer based out of Milan, Italy and she is an avid fan of analogue photography. You can visit her site Cargo Collective and her Flick photostream to see more of her photographic works.

In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.

Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
