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.

On the last Saturday of July, the old district of Borgo Vico hosted an art and music festival. There was also a graffiti contest, and the winner will exhibit his work at the Como Business Center for Expo 2015. I used my Zorki 4 loaded with an Ilford FP4+ film to document the event. I focused on the young artists who, amid the swirl of activity, had to concentrate on their large-scale pieces.
