In Madrid we celebrated the expo of the Great My Very Vi Ai Pi Lomowall and the Worlds of Holga with a great party. "The whole of Madrid" came to the event as you can surely see in this article.
First things first, a few images from the My Very Vi Ai Pi Lomowall:
We proceed with the photo call. The Lomographic celebrities had their picture taken.
We took the opportunity to reveal the mystery product that had brought us so much uncertainty during these past few weeks. We’re sure it’ll give us plenty to talk about.
And of course! The Sprocket Rocket, panoramic where it shall be, left us these impressive photographs:
We thank everyone who participated, friends and those invited, for the collaboration and enthusiasm of this project. We also thank Diego Martínez for his spectacular ‘famous people’ shots, Macallan for his combined shots, the Hub for the space, and… Ah, every lomographer and friends!!
This article is the first one that I want to dedicate to the Expo 2015. A month ago, my city Como hosted a night spectacular preceding the opening of the Universal Exposition in Milan. With my Praktica and color film, I documented this joyful, artistic event.
In this article, I'll show you my 2014 in analogue through the letters of the alphabet. All these photos were taken in the streets of my city, Como, or in close proximity (a few kilometers away from it), mainly during public or sporting events, and all in black and white.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
July 20, 1969 marked one of the most historic events in the history of mankind: on this day, the Apollo 11 crew finally landed on lunar soil. It was the culmination of a decade's worth of hard work, one that was witnessed by the whole world and remembered for the rest of time.
With a Lomo'Instant Camera and a Splitzer, you can get absolutely funny and creative images. I took it to the highest level and exposed my shots from 4 to 8 times! What you'll see next is an impressive mix of colors, textures, places and people captured in a very surreal way!
I bought the LomoKino years ago, and since then I've been having great times with it. I will continue documenting my daily life with the LomoKino, which is Lomography in motion! You can see the movements and facial expressions of people - it’s priceless! Documenting life in moving pictures, the Lomokino can be used as a camera that not only shoots moving pictures but also works like the multi-frame wonder camera, Supersampler!

Weeks have passed and yet Germans are still celebrating the victory of their heroic football team. Shortly before the World Cup started, we took notice of an interesting photography project on Kickstarter. Berlin-based sports photographer Ryu Voelkel called for help to create a football photography book like no other. The campaign was successfully funded. Ryu made his way to Brazil and came back with amazing shots including some very special Kodak Aerochrome photographs. Meet Ryu and learn more about him and his special moments at the WC 2014.
Alfred Eisenstaedt was one of Life Magazine's greatest photographers, known for his ability to immortalize the storytelling moment of many public events in history. To write this tribute to him, I chose a subject that he photographed in different places and times: card players in public places. The photos in this article were taken at the Patronal Feast of my city Como, during a series of buraco's lessons held by a local card players club.
