Maaaaaan... A day at an enormous event like Photokina can really be exhausting. Running and clicking around all day is not an easy job to do. How nice that we thought about all these poor fellows and invited them to relax at our booth.
Life and love at photokina
Looking around we found some very tired visitors that took the chance to take a nap in one of the comfy chairs. After a refreshing nap, food is the next big thing. What better place can one choose to have some healthy bananas or a spicy sandwich than our spacious booth? Look at all these hungry happy people having a good time while watching Lomographers from all over the world!
Hmmm… Eating makes thirsty! Having this in mind, we provided our dear guests with ice-cold vodka to ease the pain in their poor feet and to moisten their dry throats a little bit. Nastrowje!
But now, back to work! Our LomoLocations Map is slowly getting filled with red dots every day and lucky Lomographers leave our booth with their free cameras. It seems that our Diana Instant Back got especially popular, better said, Photokina people loooooove it! They are shooting away with it all day and enjoying the fun of instant photography.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.

Autochrome was one of the first strides toward color photography. The combination of potato starch grains and silver bromide produces a cloudy cast that makes buildings like Villa Bonnier look even more intriguing.
Anna Hollond got her fist camera on her 10th birthday, and she hasn't stopped carrying a camera ever since. About a year ago, she sought to document her memories for her journal but didn't want to do so digitally, and got her first Lomography camera. Next thing she knew, she had a trove of instant cameras, as well as a knack for instant photography.
It's every aspiring photographer's dream: turn one's hobby into a career; quit the part-time job and instead get commissioned to work on your own photography projects. Kevin Biberbach, a student from Aachen in Germany, made it. As a result of EVRY DAY, a 365-day project that has attracted plenty of attention online, he has been working on a variety of assignments such as wedding shoots and family and couple pictorials. Learn more about Biberbach, his work, passion for photography and experience with the New Petzval 85 Lens in this Lomography Exclusive.
