I was fascinated by this city with temples and houses in Indochina style. It's a little pearl in Southeast Asia and its tragic recent past seems to undermine, but not destroy its beauty and life. You can be attacked by tuk tuk drivers and people but you can also see young Buddhist monk with in their orange, yellow and brown color clothing walking in silence. I believe it was the hottest time of the year, and walking around, even for just 5 mins, in 40C heat is a tough task! Even though parts of the city were messy a lot of it was beautiful, including areas by the lake and by the river. The people were great too!

We visited the Tuol Sleng Museum, I’ll spare a lot of the details but the killings which was happening in Cambodia up until as recent as 1978 were truly gruesome.
Everybody trying to bring you to hotels, hostels etc. All trying to grab your bags so you would go with them! Chose a tuk tuk driver at random and he will help you find a cheap place to stay for a few nights. The people are poor, but just as nice and friendly – if not more so than the rest of Asia. The Khmer food is sometimes delicious and sometimes not but no problems with sickness. You can also see along the streets tanks and on the top a glass container with a tube, Cambodian gas station for the tremendous number of motorbikes. Cambodia was the poorest country we visited on our trip but ironically also the most expensive. A nice place to stay for a few days.
In addition to its beautiful natural landscapes and exotic vibe that draws tourists from all over the globe, Laos, largely a Buddhist country, is also home to a remarkable sight not seen just anywhere else in the world. Lomographer khunkrabi recalls his experience.

I went to the Victoria & Albert Museum's Friday Late, an event that takes place every last Friday evening of the month. For March 2014, the London borough of Tottenham was invited to curate an evening of creativity. There were a number of events that went on ranging from music and art to fashion and film. Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.
New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.

The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

Scroll through this gallery we've put together just for you to get a taste of the Petzval's urban potential!
Mysterious apparitions and other inexplicable phenomena on film, or generally speaking, for that matter, are as highly debated topics today as they were many decades ago. In 1934, a certain Mr. C.P. MacCarthy of 15 Wilkinson Street, Sheffield held a lecture at 76 Clarkehouse Road located in the same city to "demonstrate under test conditions Fake Psychic Photography" before an invited committee. MacCarthy's demonstration was accompanied by a series of photographs titled "Psychic Photography From a New Angle."
One Christmas, David Townsend was given the Konstruktor by his wife. It sparked an idea in his head, taking inspiration from Jack Lowe's Lifeboat Station project and his love for photography. He built and beautifully customised the Konstruktor and has just embarked on his own long term analogue project, because a camera is for life, not just for Christmas. Learn more about his project in this interview.
