From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what's exciting, unique, and important in the art world. So it was only a matter of time before Lomography had its moment in the MoMA spotlight!

In the modern art world, there are few museums on the planet as esteemed and revered for their ability to recognize important artistic movements as the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what’s exciting, unique, and important in the art world.

The images used to build the LomoWalls were assembled from two online photo rumbles that resulted in submissions from 28 countries around the world.

    This article is dedicated to Serge Moulinier, a largely unknown French photographer who won one of the most important prizes in France with a book on Greek architecture.

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

    Fascinating Photographs of the Denishawn Dancers

    Much of modern dance as it is today owes a lot to Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, husband and wife who founded the famous school and dance company, the Denishawn School of Dancing and Related Arts in 1915 Los Angeles, California. At first solo artists, St. Denis and Shawn began collaborating a year prior on dances often described as exotic and sensual, at times even erotic.

This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin.

    Stop bath is a type of chemical used in the darkroom for processing black and white film, aptly named as such because it halts the development of the images. In this case, stop bath is also part of the title that Korean analogue street photographer <b><a href="http://instagram.com/sooeatsyourstreetforbreakfast">Soomin Yim</a></b> has given her body of work, "Stop Bath the City," to represent the forgotten faces of people in the city amid rapid modernization, captured and immortalized on black and white film.
