    Being from Portugal myself I couldn't help but ask why are they called Portugal The Man?

    They're called Portugal. The Man because they liked the idea of something with the spirit of an enitre country embodied in a single person (or something like that?)... Why Portugal? I guess they liked the sound of Portugal more than other country names....?

    So stoked on this competition though!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
