Since two weeks all we're talking about here in the Lomography Gallery Store Berlin is the making of the Lomography City Guide Berlin. The whole month of October is dedicated to the city guide in the making with workshops, parties and secret missions (yet to come) taking place to dive deep into Berlin with our lomographic cameras. Our mission: to take as many breathtaking Lomographs and submit as many LomoLocations as possible to create the best city guide ever, the Lomography City Guide Berlin!
„Oh my what a pity I’m not a Berliner“ you’re saying now? But that ain’t a problem! Lots of Lomographers have been to Germany’s capital, shot great pictures (just look at the Best of Berlin competition) and went to great places. For all you Berlin lovin’ Lomographers out there the Berlin City Guide microsite is now available in English. Come by and have a look – everything you need to take part in the project is over there.
All you need for creating a LomoLocation for the City Guide are amazing Lomographs, two to three lines of text and the address of the location – voilà, you’re now in the quest of having your own personal LomoLocation published in the Lomography City Guide Berlin! And it’s not a miracle to get your place in the hall of fame: if you’re funny and creative we can already smell your LomoLocation printed on sweet glossy Hong Kong paper!
And if you are by any chance in Berlin these days come and join our workshops every Saturday. There’s a big closing party on the 30th of October and til then we gather every Thursday evening in the store to spend quality time with photos and drinks. Here’s a video of yesterdays meeting where the results of the Spinner 360° workshop were presented:
Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany. With its 3.5 million residents, it is also the second largest city in the European Union. Berlin has a lot to offer when it comes to culture as there are so many people from many different countries living and working together. Of course, Berlin is also home of Lomography Germany!
Behind the amusing username, alienmeatsack, is the avid lomographer Robn Kester. He takes on the analogue world with his radical film and camera experiments that serve as useful guides to his fellow film shooters. His dedication to be a better analogue photographer certainly knows no bounds and that's why we are crowning him as our LomoGuru of the Week!

Something happened on our way to the beach. We were about to hit the surf when we came across a parade of Piggies, all waiting to be spent promptly in the Lomography Online Shop!

Dive into the Online Shop and pick the item that you’d like to spend your Piggies on.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
In more ways than one, Lomography is an art form as much as it is an effective tool to communicate. This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin. Read further to learn more about the project and event.
"Take your camera wherever you go" is one of Lomography's golden rules that she religiously follows. Her lomographs shows her dedication to documenting even the most mundane moments of her life through beautiful photographs. Meet our newcomer of the week from United Kingdom, Breech!
For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the second part of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
