The multiple exposure feature comes straight from the hearts and minds of the worldwide Lomographic community; it involves exposing the same single frame more than once.
The multiple exposure feature comes straight from the hearts and minds of the worldwide Lomographic community; it involves exposing the same single frame more than once. As the technique became very popular in the last few years, it was decided to include a simple switch in the LOMO LC-A+ that makes multiple exposures as easy as 1,2,3; literally! Installed at the bottom of the camera, you just shoot a pic like always and then, instead of winding on the film, slide the MX-Switch to re-cock the shutter and fire again on the same frame. You can do this a limitless amount of times. Thereby you superimpose one image on top of another, yielding compositions and constructions that are absolutely bananas.
Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.

A few months ago, Lomography made available a whole range of pinhole cameras made out of premium wood. Interested on knowing how good they are, I brought the medium format one on my last trip to Germany.
As a professional photography graduate, Fernando never goes out without carrying at least one camera and treats it as an integral part of his body. Although he uses both digital and analog gears, he still regards using film as a more intimate way of creating images. Let's all welcome our newcomer from Brazil, Fernando Monteiro.
