If you have ever climbed a mountain then you know the hard work required to make it up those step paths under the burning sun. But once you conquer the summit and see the view, breathe in the fresh air and hear the silence you forget all the pain in your muscles! Standing on top of a mountain, if you ever have, can be one of the most enriching moments of your life!
A mountain top may be a great time to take out your Horizon camera, however by far not the only possibility. The Lomography web team, except for working on the beta site, have over the past months used their Horizon cameras in a variety of situations. From the busy city life in Vienna to the beaches in Spain, the heights in Canada or the snow slopes in the Alps, let these galleries speak for themselves!
“This is the story before the sun sets, before one boy goes and leaves the other behind. Their names are maybe Denver, maybe Karlo, Their names do not matter. They are every boy who ever had a brother, who found out alone that fireflies die and mermaids never lived.”
Lomographer Martynas Katauskas, or more popular as @duffman in the community, impressive work centers mostly on people and their stories. Each of his portraits are not just a combination of good framing or lighting. It's the emotion he channels out of his subjects that truly make his work unforgettable.

Lomography Team member Sarah Knoll shoots her Diana F+ regularly in low light situations. But when she got her hands on our prototype of the Diana Instant Square she took it out into the sunny streets of New York City and created a series of wonderful summer portraits.
The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
In this second installment of our special two-part feature on cinematic photographers, we take a look back to more photographers who have mastered the dreamy, often surreal aesthetic of cinematic photography.
