For a long-long time, São Paulo has been swinging with wild Lomographic activity fuelled by one of our most dedicated communities. This did not go unrecognised. Lomographers of São Paulo, this announcement goes out to you!
Lomography Gallery Store São Paulo will open its’ doors to welcome every single one of you in the very near future! And while we are working hard on the set up of the store, the centrepiece of which will of course be the most magnificent Lomowall, we would like to ask you to to take part and submit your photographs! Because the wall will be composed of your – yes your! – lomographs!
Paulistas and Paulistanos, Gringos and Tourists: mobilize! Send us your pictures that document life and leisure, architecture and chaos, food, love, dogs and trees – whatever it is that makes São Paulo São Paulo! Now is the time to get into that creative mood. Search your lomographic archives! But beware: don’t just send us pictures of the MASP, batucada and the Copan building. Explore the city with the mind of a lomographic scientist: shoot the metropolis in all its’ lush colors! Document everything it has to offer and submit your photographic evidence to us.
And of course your efforts shall be rewarded:
Every Lomographer who has photos chosen for the lomowall will get 5 piggie points credited to their account!
Like any call for submission, Lomography asks for just a few things:
• Sort through your photos and pick the best ones thoroughly and thoughtfully.
• Film/Camera Type: any kind of film / analogue camera can be used but standard 35mm or 120 format are preferred. (nothing should be digitally enhanced or manipulated.)
• Minimum Photo Dimensions: submissions must be at least 1220px in either width or height, larger dimensions are welcome
• No visible borders or watermarks, etc.
When I was a kid, one of my greatest joys was to go to the park. I especially loved playgrounds. It didn't matter how may other children there were, as long as I could have my turn to go on the slide and and sit on the swing. These days, enjoying one's childhood has become so different. Technology has stolen the interest of children in more physically demanding yet fun activities.
This week's LomoGuru is perhaps one of the most active members of our Community. Aside from regularly updating his LomoHome with wonderful photographs, he also sets aside time to meet and share insights with his fellow lomographers by attending various lomowalks and lomo-exhibitions. Let's cheer for our latest LomoGuru from Germany, Christoph Maas, also known in the Community as mapix!
He has long been regarded as one of the greatest actors of all time. In this feature, we’re taking a brief look at the life and work of influential film icon Marlon Brando in commemoration of his 90th birth anniversary.

It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.
Every year, just a few weeks before summer, I dedicate a series of photos to the joy of living outdoors in this good season. One of the most common pleasures is taking one's socks and shoes off to feel the first warm rays of sun on our pale feet, which were prisoners inside shoes throughout the long winter season. So, it's time to take off your socks and shoes and relax barefoot! Where? Of course, on the walls surrounding the beautiful lake! Take a look!
Time and again, art has and continues to influence artists even outside of this discipline. In this list are five movies which, whether partially or in full, have been inspired by paintings from some of the most influential artists in history.

As one of our most seasoned community members, herbert-4's collection of photos spans over decades of experience in film photography. Many of his albums contain images that we could only dream of capturing, from a time and generation that not many of us had the chance to be part of. Not surprisingly, each photo is entitled to its own story, and herbert-4 shares the story behind this one after the jump.
Herbert Morris has been taking photographs for almost 60 years. From being his family's event photographer, he now acts as one of the community's resident guides who's always willing to give advice—photography related or otherwise—to fellow lomographers. In this interview, Herbert shares tidbits about his life as a war veteran and how being a sneaky photographer preserved the memories of his aunt.
Lomography has previously shown you the kind of shots that one could take with the new Lomo LC-A 120. Now, with the first batch already shipped out and arriving to their lucky owners, it's the community's turn to show everyone what they've been shooting with this awesome camera!

It has been proven time and again that some of the most interesting and creative collaborations are produced by art and music. For this week's list, in no particular order, we're putting the spotlight on five albums whose cover art were specially designed by well-known artists!
As the iconic LC-A celebrates its 30th birthday this month, we think it's only timely that we look back to Lomography's roots and shine the spotlight on the camera's birthplace, Saint Petersburg. If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
Every lomographer is aware of the Ten Golden Rules, the very essence of our “Don't Think, Just Shoot” philosophy. This set of guidelines tells us to throw away our inhibitions as photogarphers and have fun while taking pictures. Many of us take these rules by heart, but maybe not all of us take them as seriously as our community member pedrosattin, who has made these rules the focus of his personal project.
