One of my favorite places in Amsterdam is Amsterdam itself. It has so much diversity, you can’t imagine. Every day there is a new face to this city, revealing it’s true nature to the eye of the beholder. In other words, Amsterdam lets you see and discover yourself. It makes you think about your spiritual you. I always hop on my bicycle and bike around with my cameras, because I know there will be a great shot every time I go into this city.
The people, the architecture, the canals, the mood and the state of mind makes this city so unique. Especially in May, June and July the party really is getting started. Having tons of festivals in the city like queens day and the gay parade (both on the 29th or 30th of April), the whole city lives up to it’s peak. Anywhere in Amsterdam is a good place, and getting lost is probably on of the best things you can do. Discover this city Lomostyle!
The brighter the sun, the larger the cast of the shadows. Contre-jour, however, does not rely on the shadow, but the figure itself. This photographic technique is used to create stark silhouettes of the subject with the help of direct natural light. Gladly, the Lomographic community has plenty of elegant images in contre-jour. We gathered our favorites.
The most challenging thing for the creative mind is to materialize ideas. But Isidro Blasco has mastered the art of turning an ambitious concept to a sight worth beholding in "Planets," a series of city sculptures made out of photographs.
It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
Our new LomoAmigo Acey Slade has a pretty cool job. He's a touring bassist for musicians like Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Even though music is his whole life, Acey still considers his photography to be much more important work. In this interview, Acey talks about his favorite cameras and a mysterious disposable camera lying around his band's tour bus—the developed pictures were nothing like his bandmates imagined!

Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
Jack Lowe has been traveling round the UK with the aim to shoot every RNLI post using Wet Plate Collodion photography. The Lifeboat Station Project photography is a five-year photographic mission that makes use of a painstaking process. It is a fascinating, much talked about project that deserves to be documented, not just through words but through images as well.
