I’d assume that as lovers of analogue photography, we all share the same obsession for prints. Maybe those into the digital grind feel the opposite with images and music. They’d rather buy it online than spend for disks. Thanks to Radiohead for proving them wrong.
Radiohead’s latest album The King of Limbs is packaged so beautifully that I’d compare it to meeting an old friend personally instead of chatting online. It’s designed by Stanley Donwood using the treatment of a Sunday broadsheet.
From the black and white illustrations to the clever use of typography, I gasp for joy every time I see this. It engages all the senses like a ritual. Maybe experiencing this is like drinking tea—first flip is joy, the second is gladness, the third is serenity, the fourth is madness, the fifth is ecstasy.
Match that with the scent of freshly inked paper—oh it’s pure bliss!
Forgive my poeticizing, but it is with pleasure that I admit my adoration for beautiful things that my hand can hold.
There are things that artist Valeriie Liin can't leave the house without: her earphones, two notebooks, keys to her home in Taiwan, and a little color palette for painting. It's not always that she can paint, though, so for those times she turns to her cameras.
Lomography warmly invites everyone to join us on a trip to Rockaway Beach on Saturday, July 25. We will be conducting a couple of workshops to make sure you're well equipped onyour summer beach escapades.
Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.
Ladies and gentlemen, for this rumble, we’ve joined forces with Australian MC/singer REMI Kolawole. Since he is on tour now and will play in many different places this summer, we’re looking for your best, most exciting analogphotos which you feel best capture the essence of music festivals. Hot prizes are waiting for you!
