You always wanted to contact a Lomographer in Portugal? Meet someone while on vacation in Buenos Aires? Wondered if there are other people from your hometown active on this site? With our new Homes feature these questions might be answered…
Now you can browse users by countries or cities – right now these lists are a bit empty (well, actually quite empty) because to protect your privacy you need to activate what others can see about you. To do so simply visit the settings page, use the checkboxes to make your country and city public in your home (and maybe your age and sex while you are at it).
Why should you be doing this?
Well, first to let others know where you are from. Second to win some piggies. At the beginning of next week we will pick 20 lucky users (10 from each category – country and city) at random to be given 10 piggies! Please note that our caches might need some time (at most some minutes) to update.
Have fun and let us know what you think about this feature – and also post the link to your country and city in the comments once you are featured!

London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
Done shooting and want your films to be processed? We can process your colour and black & white 35mm, 120 or 110 films! Development, prints and scans are also included. (Service availability depends on your markets)
