Not so long ago I got 10 coils of film - the ORWO colour NC19 - on the internet auction. When I bought this film at once I knew that it would be necessary to show it on cross-process (C41) because the manufacturer of this film, and chemistry for it (ORWO 5168) was stopped approximately in the mid-nineties, but the price surprised me: 2$ for a film.
Having received a film by mail, next day I inserted it into “Lubitel” camera and went to take photos of my snow-covered town. The result of it you can see on these photos. I liked ORWO colour NC19 very much. Interesting emerald colour. It is difficult for any other film to make such effect. It is a pity though, that I bought only 10 coils of this rare gem of a film. So I would like to give you a piece of advice: if you see this film, buy it and don’t even think, just buy!
I sincerely hope that there will come a time when they will have this film manufactured again.
Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
Ouagadougou is the capital of Burkina Faso. 1.6 million people live there when 20 years ago there were only 700,000; that is to say, the incredibly quick growth and the stunning density in this city shows today.

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
