Towers are great! They allow you to see the world in a whole new perspective. That's why we decided to have our very own tower at photokina 2010! It is impressive five meters high and offers an amazing view over our booth once our visitors climbed its steps!
Looking down on the deep blue sea made of thousands of Lomographs, there were even some people who felt tempted to dare a jump down into our imaginary swimming pool. From up above it looks so convincing that you can almost smell the water. Fortunately nobody really did it and kept this refreshing thought only in their minds and in the photos they took. In this height you can also see the shape of the seven continents much better and also the huge banners with our prophecies show a whole new side.
Beneath this impressive view, our tower also offers some peace from the daily photokina hustle. We put some cosy chairs on its top to provide peace and relaxation to the ones who dare to climb the tower. Relaxing in this height with some fine music from our turntables feels like a small holiday from the daily craze. Follow our virtual tour onto the Lomography tower:
Just a few steps away from the tower, our Analogue Arts Juror is still giving away free cameras to everybody who proposes an exciting LomoLocation. Until today we gave away over 300 cameras, so there are still some waiting for you to take your chance! Getting a free camera has never been this easy, so see ya tomorrow!
We all know about 35mm and 120 film, right? And since Lomography re-introduced 110 film, we have another film format to play with. But in the years past, many more film formats were in use. Let me introduce you to a few golden oldies and tell you about my experiences with them. I'll start with Rapid film.
After a fully booked 2015, photographer Chloé Vollmer-Lo found time to test the Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens. She brought it to the Natural History Museum and the Paris business district, an endeavor that resulted in quite a few stunning, bokeh-rich images.

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."
'Snapshot' was our Tumblr keyword this week. We spent the past few days looking at troves of fresh samples from all corners of the globe.
