Who else has a twin?!! Well, I do. My sister Rach is in many, many photos and has grown very used to the fact that I take way lots of pictures. I love to click away and who else better to take pictures of than my sister! Its one of the perks for being a twin!
This photo was quite accidental when I took it during last October, but it is one of my favorites. When I want to try different photo projects, she is usually willing to take part and this photo was one where I wanted to experiment with redscale film and a person’s style. A friend and Rach kindly dressed up in several outfits they love. I love to dress up; its fun to see what people love to wear. Everyone has their own style and I really enjoy photographing them. We felt like we were little children – dressing up in clothes we had not worn for ages combining bright, polka dot, or striped clothing together. There is so much inspiration from random activities; I would recommend trying anything to gain inspiration for photos. Anyways, we were in the back yard and I was not intending to shot this, but she turned quickly and I clicked the shutter and tada!
Although there may not be an interesting story behind it, I love how it captures her glancing over to something unknown. Something we don’t know, but it intrigues the viewer. Rach’s pensive face and distinct vintage hat, almost twenties, gives this allusion of something old, different, and I love it. Its simple and I’m grateful for having such a photographic sister! Being a twin, its useful when you’re a lomographer!
Taking a picture is like saying: “Let me hang on to this minute.” It’s a way to play with time. The LomoKino playbook has many of these rewind-worthy minutes. The spectrum is wide, from homely bits to eye-opening travels.
Soon, a school more than a century old in Switzerland will be closing its doors and transformed to house offices. Taking on the important task of documenting its hallowed halls is srcardoso, who made use of film as a way of honoring it.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.

By going on a photo walk waggrad00 was not only able to de-stress, she also had the chance to meet several interesting people along the way. One of them was this homeless fellow who made her as well as many others' day better with a small but thoughtful gesture.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of one of the most influential photography books ever, "Ballet" by the photographer, art director, and graphic designer Alexey Brodovitch. Brodovitch took a series of photos of classical dance in a very unconventional way, using very slow exposure times, trying to catch the true essence of Russian ballets. For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
