Great results of the nationalwide film swap organized by the Lomography Embassy Chile. Despite the Chilean winter, the enthusiasm for this double experience was unbroken.
A few weeks ago, the Lomography Embassy Chile organized the largest film swap so far. Lomographers from the entire country with a huge variety of analogue cameras were taking part despite the bad weather during the Chilean winter. To expect even more unexpected, the organizers themselves chose all the couples and also kept all other information secret so there was no chance to imagine how the results could look like. And they look awesome!
Here a small best-of selection. If you want to see more, just visit the Lomography Chile Blog or the Flickr gallery.
25 couples, 50 rolls and almost 900 pictures in a great mix of color negative, slides and black and white film.

Feldküche is a group that organizes dinner parties with a difference by cooking wonderful meals for groups throughout the Austrian countryside. This summer, we gave them a New Petzval lens to use in capturing their wonderful gatherings of people, food, drink and nature.

Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
