If you keep your eyes open you can find works by Banksy (or inspired by Banksy) throughout London. When I walked through Primrose Hill I saw the ‘Make Tea Not War’ painting on the side of a cafe (the cafe it is on is also really good!) and there is also one of a child the next street over. I love the juxtaposition between street art and the genteel feel of Primrose Hill. Although now (with some online research) I find that the ‘Make Tea Not War’ one is not a real Banksy – I think it is just as cool! I like it even better than some true Banksys. While they still are not certain who the artist is – they know who the lady in the painting is – June Beechey, a recently retired local shopkeeper. As the “Make Tea Not War” is not a real Banksy, I suppose it is highly unlikely that the child on the next street over is…but even though it might not be a true Banksy – it is well worth a look on your next walk through Primrose Hill.
Joel Byron is a long-time fan of Lomography and uses analog methods in his work at his video and film production agency BigPlus. Back in 2010 he painstakingly put together the Lomography Caterpillar Matrix video which had over 60,000 hits! We lent Joel a Petzval lens and asked him to capture some video footage of London. The results were pretty stunning.
Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In June, I tried EBS (exposing both sides) again to see if I could get perfect symmetrical images—half redscale, half normal.
