This short and sweet video by Netherlands’ snoozer might induce fond recollections of oneself as a bright and imaginative kid!
They say children have the wildest and most vivid imaginations, and this fact is the focus of this less-than-a-minute-long short flick by Jorn van der Putte (*snoozer*) of the Netherlands. It’s a very simple film that stars a little boy, with whimsical instrumental music playing in the background and the words “So today I invent a spaceship and tomorrow I will fly and discover something new” appearing one after the other throughout. Snoozer’s Lomokino debut has that cool, vintage vibe that films shot with these camera are known for, making “All kids are inventors” look like an artsy, old home movie!
Here in the Lomography magazine we often venture to the community’s Movies section, where we’re able to stumble upon shorts that do not only depict interesting storylines but are also well-executed. The new Kino Stories series aims to put the well-deserved spotlight on these gems, so keep those creative juices flowing and tell us your story! Who knows, you just might get featured in an upcoming installment!

If this view looks too sweet to be true, it's because the gable houses, spindly bridges and docked boats are all miniature! Using Horizon Kompakt, one Lomographer turned the make-believe village of Babbacombe into a life-size vista.

If you loved the Petzval Lens, we have Joseph Petzval to thank for. The mathematician/inventor/physicist was born in Hungary, but spent most of his life in Vienna.

Because they have faceless conversations with readers, authors are distinguished by their eloquence and imagination. But seeing an inset portrait of a favorite writer can be a delight to a fan: The man or woman whose words seem so immortal is human after all.
There are many possible reasons for taking pictures. It could be to document an event, to capture breathtaking scenery, to preserve a fond memory, or simply, to have a snapshot of someone close to your heart. Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print. If you want a quick keepsake from that treasured moment or a snapshot of that special someone though, you can have it instantly, through Lomo'Instant Stories!
