The Lomo Embassy was invited to come up with a lomo wall depicting Pinoy pride. The lomowall was composed of 100 photos from lomomomanila members and was displayed in the atrium of the Market! Market! mall on June 12, 2010—Independence Day, no less.
Many groups and organizations took advantage of June 12 weekend to organize exhibits, concerts, and other events commemorating Independence Day. The Lomo Embassy and lomomanila was invited to come up with a lomowall by the marketing group of Market! Market! The theme was “Pinoy Pride.” We were given less than a week to send our entries and to come up with the wall. The task was easy and people had an abundance of lomo shots, depicting the theme. The wall was raised in good time to be part of the mall-wide event.
During the celebration, there were dance numbers, bands, displays of various clothes brands with Pinoy slogans. There were photos of President-elect Noynoy Aquino during his campaign sortee. There was a testimonial wall werein anyone was invited to scribble a few lines saying how proud he or she is to be Pinoy. Other advocacy groups also got to advertise their activities. Aside from the mall crowd, one would notice that most of the audience in attendance was the youth. This is a good sign because they are our pride and hope, we are working hard to give them a better future.

The best thing about working for Lomography is having first access to new products. Imagine everyone's excitement when the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M was delivered to the headquarters in Vienna, where members of the Lomography team took turns testing this tiny yet powerful optic on various cameras. Meanwhile, Tom Bates from Marketing teased out the idyllic and colorful possibilities of shooting with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 lens on a trip to the UK countryside.
Kevin Meredith, more popularly known as LomoKev, is a photographer based in Brighton, England who gained notoriety for his use of the Lomo LC-A and his lomographic style of creating images. Aside from a plethora of personal and commercial projects, he has also conducted workshops on photography, written and published photography-related books, and participated in a few exhibits. With his evident passion for photography, it comes as no surprise that he was selected to test a prototype of the New Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens.
There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
