FYF Fest, Los Angeles' very own music festival, returned to the Los Angeles State Historic Park in downtown Los Angeles on Labor Day weekend 2011. But Benjamin Hoste partnered with Lomography LA to capture FYF 2010 in an exclusively analog way.
Last year, Lomography and FYF joined forces to arm fans and musicians alike with Lomography cameras and film. The result is to give YOU an up close and personal view of this jamming music festival from the pit, the park, and backstage! Project Director Benjamin Hoste collected the lomographs, along with personal essays and turned the whole thing into a super cool website.
Barbora Smoláková's first brush with lomography started with a Diana F+ Deluxe Kit. With its variety of accessories, the Diana F+ allowed her to explore the endless possibilities of creative photography. 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.

As a wildlife cameraman and photographer, Ian Llewellyn has worked on a number of television projects. The UK-based lensman breaks free from the strict confines of his profession by engaging in monochrome photography. His personal work is a plethora of abstract and experimental imagery, created in a style distinctly his own. Llewellyn is an ardent user of a Leica Monochrom camera, on which he mounted the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Lens, producing the most imaginative, phantasmic results.
Although its existence has always been known among locals, it was only in 1913 when the rest of the world was introduced to the Inca site of Machu Picchu through an expedition headed by Yale University and professor Hiram Bingham.
