In this case, a Bronze Medal for Arnaldo Pomodoro is worth far more than usual. As a matter of fact, it’s worth gold. Arnaldo Pomodoro is an Italian artist of international repute, best known for his sculptures in bronze.
The Arnaldo Pomodoro Foundation, an initiative of the eponymous artist, began in 1995 in via Solari, in the space previously run by the foundry Riva&Calzoni.
The interiors, although redone, retain the previous industrial feel. A huge open space is subdivided into three stories by a metal structure. It also features a wide corridor, overlooking the work being exhibited on the ground floor.
Pomodoro’s works are permanently exhibited here, however, they are on rotation together with a number of alternating installations. The images below showcase the work of Perino & Vele and Olga Shigal.
The foundation’s programme is jam-packed with readings, concerts, and workshops related to the exhibitions. Courses of art appreciation for both adults and children are also offered thanks to the foundation’s extensive library.
Some months ago the wonderful city of Matera, chosen as the European Capital of Culture 2019, hosted an exhibit featuring the works of an important Italian social photographer: Pepi Merisio, who had also donated all photos shown to the local public library. To pay homage to this great artist, I have selected a series of photos that I took in this place last summer. Take a look!
Jonathan Weimar, better known as johnny-weimar in the community, professes his passion for photography with the help of quite a few analog cameras. He has made quite a reputation and is best remembered by the Lomography Turkey crew as the guy who gave 50-something films to develop and scan. Get to know the high school teacher-cum-lomographer in this candid yet inspiring interview.
As many of you would already know, shooting under low light conditions requires more than a steady grip (or a tripod) if you're aiming for outstanding results. You must also have the proper gear, and that, of course, includes film. In this post, we list down five fast films that work their best under such conditions.
Graphic designer Johann Bottos caught the community's attention with his striking black and white landscape photographs. Previsualization is central to his photographic style. Before clicking the shutter, he tends to "wait for a particular moment or weather condition" that fits the image he has in mind. In this interview, he shares more about his passion for shooting on film as well as some of his favorite landscape images.
Last year, Armin Amirian talked to Lomography about his motivations as an artist, his inspiration for his work and the difficulty of pursuing his passion in the society he belongs to. With that came a collection of images that reflected the concerns he and his fellow countrymen are faced with every day. The Iran-based photographer returns with insight on his new body of work.
When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.

Blind Austrian alpinist and extreme athlete Andy Holzer, known as the "blind climber", took 4 of his friends on what was planned as a relaxing ski-touring trip on Antarctic Peninsula. In their backpacks, an LC-A+ and LC-Wide. Thomas Beck documents their adventure in his travel log series.
"The overarching theme is seeing people in adverse conditions take matters into their own hands and still find the energy to go dancing or fall in love or create art," Astronautalis said of his new album. We found that pretty inspiring, so we teamed up with him for a Rumble competition based on that idea.

For some, it marked their first foray into the wonderful world of analog photography. Others consider it a trusty, go-to camera despite having a massive camera collection which sometimes include some of the best gear there is. Whatever the case may be, toy cameras will always hold a special place in the hearts (and shelves) of analog photographers everywhere, quirks and all.
Imagine a blindfolded painter whipping his brush on a canvas. This is what the light painter does in the dark. He wags his light writers in the air and trusts the camera to record what he can't see. As for the moment of truth—careful, the sparks might fly.
Bernhard Rauscher's passion for light painting photography is as vibrant as his creations. His light paintings are either craftily executed renditions of things you see in everyday life, or fanciful abstract figures. He uses do-it-yourself devices made from water bottles and tinsel as light painting tools. Part of his collection of magical devices is the Pixelstick, which he talks about in this exclusive interview.
