    One of the few rare Zenit cameras out there, just over 90,000 units of the Zenit 12 were made. Basically, a 12 XP without the XP, this Russian tank combined with the Helios 44 is a classic combo that serves up amazing images.

    To the Dearly Departed: My Grandmother

    Hello, my name is Kristina. I want to share some of the memories I have of my grandmother. There won't be any dates or facts. I was too little and careless to remember. Besides, she was a mysterious woman.

    The Fed Experience - A Fed 3 Review

    I ordered the Fed 3 without much thinking. Its looks had me at hello. I wanted a rangefinder camera for quite some time and only when the little guy was already on its way I started to really pay attention to reviews written on Lomography. And what I saw kind of scared me. I was in for a heavy old camera with a mind of its own.

    BelOMO Etyud (Etude)

    Etyud -- this is a simple for use plastic camera. One of the few plastic 120 type cameras in the USSR of a 60's and 70's. Faded colors, angular body -- the soviet people know with this type of design. But shoot this camera is very nice.

    Agat 18

    Agat 18 is the smallest camera in my collection. It is so compact that can fit into the palm, doesn't take too much space in the pocket, that is why you can always be ready for the unexpected and interesting things with this camera.

  • Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine

    Independence Square, Kiev, Ukraine

    Situated at the northern end of Khreschatyk, Kiev’s Independence Square received global media attention in 2004 as the focal point of Ukraine’s Orange Revolution. Orange-clad demonstrators gathered in the Independence Square in Kiev during November, 2004. On some days, the number of protesters in the center of Kiev reached hundreds of thousands (one million by some estimates). Today, things have calmed down a little and the tented city that sprung up overnight has long gone. Independence Square, however, is still the city’s most popular spot for meetings, late night drinking and people watching.
