In the 1950s, plastic was introduced as a new and exciting material for making boats. What followed was an era of beautiful plastic boats. Despite the fact that the old boats have become rare and hard to come by, the museum in Vest-Agder (Norway) has made an event inviting people from all over the country to show off their legendary old boats. As a result, they have created a beautiful scene for any lomographer who wants to capture something unique!
The Vest-Agder Museum has arranged an annual event where all the departments of the museum get together and arrange a sort of “cultural festival” with events for both the old and the young. The event happens during the beginning of summer when Norway is at its most beautiful! This year it was held on the 18th of June and the turn out was good despite it being a relatively small event. The weather was great and there were many things to keep you occupied. Despite the display of old plastic boats being the main attraction, the whole event is basically a museum brought outdoors for the public to enjoy for free.
Grab a hot dog, and some soda and enjoy the day by the water in the sun, while looking at a show consisting of some of the most stunning old boats the country of Norway has to offer. Bring your camera and capture not only the event, but also the stunning southern town of Kristiansand, and all it has to offer.
Joe Brook is one of the most popular photographers in the West Coast skate scene, shooting for magazines like Trasher, Juxtapoz, Rolling Stone, and different outlets such as PDN and Kodak. Having previous experience with an old Petzval lens mounted on a 4x5 camera, it was but natural for him to try the new one. Brook talks about finding himself, his work, and shooting with the Lomograhy Petzval Lens in this exclusive interview.
As you may have read in my previous article, I truly fell in love with Lomography when I combined my Fisheye camera with an old Canon AE-1 for magical photographic results. Last summer, I took so many pictures of flowers that it started to become almost boring for me. My waning interest and the coming winter meant that I had to figure out something else to do with my 35mm film.
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.

Barbora Smoláková's first brush with lomography started with a Diana F+ Deluxe Kit.

In this interview, she opens up about her experience shooting with this versatile camera and how it helped her appreciate the beauty of ordinary things.
A hat is in the position to be noticed before any other item of clothing. Its shape and texture can immediately call to mind cultural associations. A cloche is to 1920s fashion as a picture hat is to the 1900s. The wide-brimmed or fur-lined variety, on the other hand, is more functional for tribes.
Mary Robinson has shown a natural talent for photography even at such an early age. Even when she was first featured on the Magazine in 2011, her images already made an impression on the Lomography Community. Her work has evolved in the span of four years, but its quaint beauty remains.
