Keith Vaz and his bandmates from Tropics took a trip to play SXSW in Texas last month. He brought his trusty La Sardina along to capture some of the fun, and checked in to let us know how they're getting on.
For this tour we snuck my La Sardina 35mm to SXSW Festival whilst performing showcase shows with our new LA-based label Innovative Leisure. The journey started as a great way to join our new family whilst networking in America, but as night dawned the agenda soon shifted to what Austin-Texas is really about: big wholesome food and well-mixed Margaritas (the aftermath as seen in the photos!) With our Lomo-camera now a cherished part of our luggage itinerary, the next adventures can be found on my page at: facebook.com/withjoyfullips
Very few of even the most intrepid travelers get to set sail to the Arctic and the Antarctic. A lomographer known to the Community as stouf, however, was able to set foot on both polar regions. While the rare opportunity to visit these uncommon destinations came in parcel with his profession, he did not forget to bring along his trusty cameras and favorite film to capture scenes from the expeditions.
Edwin from the Lomography Team first learnt about Lomo cameras when he was studying design. The first roll of Fisheye 1 from his photography classes made him very happy, and he kept Lomo in his life ever since. In his last trip to Taiwan, Edwin brought along the Belair Instant Camera. Did this Instant Camera bring him the same happiness? What does Edwin think about his travel companion?
It's a huge pleasure to introduce our latest LomoAmigo, the fantastically gifted musician James Vincent McMorrow. This year, James launched his new album 'Post Tropical' and we couldn't wait to put a La Sardina camera in hands to play with for the Summer. He took the camera with him on his tour and snapped some truly cool shots. Check them out and read our interview with James below!
A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested in knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
Traveling is almost synonymous to taking photographs, and for many photographers, it's always a question of which gear to bring to document their trips with. For Carson Sanders, he brought his Fuji Instax Wide, among other cameras, on his first ever trip to Cuba just last May.
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.
Only 30 years old, French photographer Bastien Bonnarme has already documented international surf events such as the Roxy ASP Women’s Longboard Competition,the Belharra Wave, and the Nixon Surf Challenge. And as if that wasn't interesting enough, Bastien is also a lomographer! We lent Bastien some of our cameras for his trip to Kamtchatka with the Nixon Surf Challenge Team, and we're thrilled to finally showcase what he brought back from the great cold. Check out the photos and the exclusive interview after the jump.
