I've been a Hanson fan since the mmmboping days of 1997. So you can imagine my elation when I saw my favorite band of all time's new video 'Give a little' and saw Taylor wrapping his hands around a bright yellow Holga!
For around a year, since the beginning of the ‘Shout it out’ tour, I’ve noticed in different blog posts and random photos with fans that Taylor Hanson has been spotted wearing a red Holga around his neck. He shared a bunch of ‘on the road’ photographs on a blog but I worked out that they were taken with an iphone and the hipstamatic app.
I was hoping that he would publish his films somewhere, spreading the analogue word but the other day when I watched the video for their new upbeat song ‘Give a little’, which I think is sure to be a hit if people spread the word about it enough, I saw him holding a bright yellow Holga. The imagery in the video is derivative of their 113 book – a book of paintings made by the band to go along with the release of the album. It’s all very bright and include some analogue references like boom boxes and there is even a sketch showing Talyor holding a camera which very much looks like a Holga up to his face.
Check out the Holga at about 1:30 and check out their babies dancing at 3:00
I don't know many bands from Russia but one that I've been admiring for years is Motorama from Rostov-on-Don. With catchy tunes and adorable videos, they took my heart by storm and that of fans from all over the world. Because of their Russian origin, Motorama is of course familiar with Lomo products. Reason enough to let them become our latest LomoAmigos! Enjoy the interview with singer Vlad and check out their B&W photos, taken with a La Sardina Splendour.
In the third and final installment of his Russian love story, Herr Willie recalls some of the most memorable experiences from his trips to post-Soviet Russia, including traveling aboard the Trans-Siberian Railway and shooting with the La Sardina for Lomography on assignment, and waxes nostalgic about all the amazing people he had met.
We are very excited to introduce the latest addition to the Lomo’Instant family, the Lomo’Instant Boston Edition. The Boston only made it to first base when it appeared in our Kickstarter campaign but by the raucous applause we got from you guys, it’s in it for the homerun!
What comes to your mind when you think of Boston? Maybe it's the Red Sox, or maybe it's Baked Beans? In this latest competition to celebrate the Lomo'Instant Boston Edition, we want to know what Boston means to you! Maybe you've been there, maybe not — it doesn't matter! Show us your favorite photos that represent Boston in your mind!
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.
