The Tunnel, Waterloo: an ever-changing, graffiti lovers' heaven.
The Tunnel – Leake Street, Waterloo
If I told you that there was a place in London where you can go, take pictures, and each time you’d return it would be different, you would probably laugh and say " Are you pulling my leg?!". Well, actually I’m not. This grimy wonderland of colour-splashed walls is like a Lomo lover’s dream.
The Tunnel is a place where graffiti artists can legally go and do their thing without any hassle. Walk through at the end and you will come out into an open area. This normally has all kinds of rubbish that people decide to leave there. For the public, its a nuisance, but for me I think it’s great and along with all the puddles and their reflections, it really helps give depth in your photos. Definitely a hidden gem in London but shh..don’t tell everyone!
East London is the perfect place to spot some interesting and colourful graffiti. Lomography Gallery Store Soho recently ran an LC-A+ workshop where we documented some of the best urban street art in the city!
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.

Rooms contain what the owner values or has come to hate (tucked in boxes, of course). Colors reveal mood swings. Gardens follow the season’s orders. A house keeps up with ever-changing whims and styles—one of the things that make it a home. Here’s something to inspire your next spruce-up.
Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
This month our workshops are covering the classics! Back by popular demand is the Diana F+ Back to Basics workshop, an East London Street Art walk with the LC-A+ and a Diana Pinhole workshop. Book yourself a spot today!
