If you thought the magic and science behind the process of developing photographs is amusing, check out these images by Vietnam-based photographer Binh Danh who develops photos on leaves using chlorophyll. Ah-mazing!
Although it looks innovative, this technique is even older than photography. Danh takes advantage of the reaction of chlorophyll to sunlight to develop his images. This artist knows the technique very well and obtains some truly amazing results.
Check out his website where he has more of his interesting work and other photographic projects.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
Have you heard of The Knocks? If you haven't (and like to dance) you should definitely listen to these new LomoAmigos, whose first headline tour just sold out! The New York-based electronic duo crossed the country on a tour bus and had a Lomo'Instant Wide in tow. They brought back some amazing photos—see them here and learn more about the guys behind the beats. Plus, get a chance to win a camera signed by The Knocks and a copy of their debut album "55"!
Influenced by the work of Caravaggio, Berlin-based photographer Klara Johanna Michel hand-painted photographs are reminiscent of Renaissance art. The images are highly stylized and the subjects are posed to mimic the appearance of religious beings. Who would have thought that such mystery and old world charm could similarly be achieved with the help of an instant camera?

Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.
