What could this man, all dress so sharp and clean, be waiting for in such a grimy and grungy alley?
masha_njam just crafted a perfect ending shot for an action-packed movie. The saturated green from cross processing the slide film provided a great contrast to the all black attire of the solitary man standing in the middle. We can’t help but wonder though, who could he be waiting for? A friend, a daughter, or perhaps a long lost lover?

For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
Hundreds of thousands of photographs have been shared in the community for the past twelve months and we cannot help but commend those that really stood out and captured everyone's attention. Let's take a look back at this great year through this selection of landscapes and portraits that make up the most popular photos of 2014.
This year's Cannes Film Festival is upon us and we are so excited! We are certain you're on pins and needles, waiting for the revelation of this year's winner of the prestigious Palme d'Or. So to appease your frenzy, we put together this little gallery of the very best film posters of all time.
Lomography is proud to announce that it will again accompany the Nixon Surf Team to be part of this year's Nixon Surf Challenge. In line with this, we've prepared a rumble for all traveling and adventure-seeking lomographers.
For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
Something happened on our way to the beach. We were about to hit the surf when we came across a parade of Piggies, all waiting to be spent promptly in the Lomography Online Shop! And now, 10 of these Piggy Points are frolicking in the sand, all yours for the taking! So what are you waiting for? Dive into the Online Shop and pick the item that you’d like to spend your Piggies on.
Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.
I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
The wait is over! Unveil the all new LOMO' INSTANT with us this November with a photo hunt and a demo day! We've also prepared a stellar lineup of workshops just for you. Join us for a month full of activities to nourish your photographic minds!
Of course, Italy makes a great destination for taking photos. But what if there was a place where you could find stunning motifs, impressive colors, and the ideal mixture of nature and arts all at once? What if I told you that there is a place like that: a garden full of art in the middle of nowhere?
For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.
Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
