Alicia Elgueta is a Chilean girl, who loves makes pinhole photos.A few years ago I met to Alice through Flickr. Her work with Lomo cameras was the first made me follow her photos. But then, the most interesting was her passion for the simplicity of Pinhole Cameras.
Alicia takes pictures with matchboxes cameras. Also she uses polaroid back to make her pinhole polaroid. She uses films 120mm, 35mm and Polaroid. It is also the principal member of the group The Pinhole Guys from Chile, with her boyfriend.
Her work goes beyond a good and beautiful picture, the dedication in creating of the cameras is the most amazing thing. She has been published in a couple of books for her great photos. And It´s a proud to say that she is the best representative of the Pinhole Photograph in Chile, and who knows, maybe South America.
She is awaiting her first baby now, and surely he will be photographed in thousands of pinhole when he birth.
A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested in knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
When she was first featured on the Magazine in 2011, Mary Robinson's natural talent for photography was already evident. Her images made an impression on the Lomography Community even back then. Her work has evolved in the span of four years, but its quaint beauty remains.
Valerio Spada went beyond his comfort zone and stepped right into the battlefield with his camera. He went to Naples, Italy, an area populated by the Camorra Mafia but also home to Annalisa Durante who, at the age of 14, was killed by a bullet aimed at a Camorra boss. What happened to her could've happened to any of the girls portrayed in the book Gommorah Girl. This work is about Annalisa. It's about all of the girls that, just like her, seem doomed to an unfair destiny - which, hopefully, may still change.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
