I absolutely love the Imperial War Museum. The sheer extent of their collection is astonishing – I have spent hours there and still haven’t managed to see everything. Every time I go I am moved by some object or detail that I never noticed before. And for those of you with bad memories of school history – don’t think that it has anything to do with history being boring! They also include interactive experiences where you get to walk through a simulation of a WWI trench and of a WWII air raid. They successfully make visitors engaged in the material and contemplate the devastating effects of war. Outside of the museum is a piece of the Berlin Wall, with graffiti of a sort of screaming face and the words ‘change your life’ which I always find particularly poignant.
The Science Museum in London is set to play host to a showcase of some of the earliest known images taken by photography pioneers, selected from the collection of the world's oldest surviving photographic society.
Photos shot with a New Petzval lens are immediately recognizable for their super-sharp focus areas and wonderful swirly bokeh effect. Each New Petzval lens is crafted from brass (just like the original Petzval lens) and features premium glass optics. Together with Lomography, the lenses have been designed and constructed by a team of optics specialists at the Zenit factory in Russia. Zenit are master lens manufacturers and have the skill to build the Petzval lens for use with today’s SLR cameras.
To complement “David Bowie is,” a touring retrospective exhibit organized by The Victoria and Albert Museum, London that revolves around the prolific career of David Bowie and is currently ongoing at the Museum of Image and Sound (MIS) in São Paulo, Brazil, the MIS as part of its Stereo MIS series of musical projects, held a David Bowie Tribute concert featuring a few of Brazil’s homegrown talents earlier this month. Letícia Godoy, a photographer for the museum and one of our Kickstarter Petzval supporters, documented the highlights of the concert with the help of the Lomography x Zenit Petzval Lens, and here is a gallery of her photos.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.
