Lomography in History: Shots of Historical Moments
I found these photos about years ago in an abandoned part of an old hospital (converted into an old peoples home). The building was slowly filling up with pidgeon shit, so i got them and saved them from a slow death. I felt these photos needed to preserved and these people not to be forgotten.
The first set shows a big mill fire that happened near where i live. It may not be a very historical moment, but you must think about the people who worked there over a 100 years ago and how they all lost their jobs. This was a very bad historical moment for these poor people!
I love these photos, they are so raw and beautiful yet destructive!
The following pictures are pictures of people long gone and probably forgotten except for me, and now you.
July 20, 1969 marked one of the most historic events in the history of mankind: on this day, the Apollo 11 crew finally landed on lunar soil. It was the culmination of a decade's worth of hard work, one that was witnessed by the whole world and remembered for the rest of time.

Great lyric, though layered with fictions, is a piece of personal history. And so is the video. Inspired by their collaborator’s words and music, directors still turn to film for a touch of authenticity and soul.
Two days from now, Lempertz will hold a sale of 195 photographic prints. The lineup is as varied as the history of photography itself. An 1856 print by an anonymous photographer is in the same group as a top-valued Joseph Szabo shot. A deceptively simple shot of a flower vase is joined by the complex textures of Lucien Hervé. Take a look at the fascinating mix.
Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.
The Lomography Hong Kong Team spent a cozy evening at the opening party for an antique shop and captured moments from the event with the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens. The Minitar-1 Lens brought life to every image, from quick behind-the-scenes snaps and portraits, to artsy and creative shots of the antiques.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
