Some people might not take Lomography and our quirky little plastic cameras seriously, but Times staffer Genaro Molina will prove any naysayer wrong with his incredibly amazing and simply breathtaking analogue portraits!
Just because a camera doesn’t cost over 2,000 dollars doesn’t mean it can’t take awesome photos. Sometimes all you need is something both fantastic and plastic and you’re good to go! Case in point are the hauntingly beautiful celebrity portraits of Genaro Molina of the Times. Shooting everyone from Jamie Foxx, Steven Spielberg, and anyone else you can imagine. Massive light leaks, multiple exposures and super saturated images from all manners of plastic cameras have graced the Times’ columns. Truly, Molina is living the Lomographic dream!
As a scientist, Pierrick is often curious about the mechanism behind how things work. His first brush with analog photography is no exception. Eager to know more about the inner workings of a film camera, he started from scratch and tested his DIY skill with the Konstuktor camera.
On July 4, 1776, the redrafted version of Thomas Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence made it to Congress. Some 90 years later it was made into an official holiday.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
