A few shots from the Southbank Lomo walk & talk inc. Gabriel’s Wharf, Concrete, Tate Modern and pathways in between.
A few images from an hour or so in the company of a multitude of Lomographers walking eastwards along London’s Southbank from the Hayward Gallery to the Millennium Bridge – starting at the Concrete cafe (hence the cut-off mixer here presented in glorious cross-processed technicolor) – there was junk food aplenty on sale en route (though the guy stirring the caramelized onions didn’t want his face in the picture!) – closely followed by a procession of the weirdest wedding ceremony guests parading past the Oxo tower and Gabriele’s Wharf where there was also some decidedly under-age drinking going on but without offense – very chilled and a sea of bicycles (not sure if they were for sale or for hire but everyone seemed to photographed them!) – plus some fine upbeat be-bop in the tunnel beneath Black friars railway bridge provided by two pretty happy buskers (they had a pretty big audience) – images taken on Holga (35mm Fujichrome 400 cross-processed) and Diana F+ (expired Fujichrome film also cross-processed)
An old-school movie theatre and a smartphone walk into a bar... It may sound like the start of a cheesy joke your crazy uncle tells you over and over again, but to Luckies of London, it sounded like a chance to merge their love of analogue with modern technology! We sat down with Xavier Unwin, the Creative Director at Luckies of London, to talk about their fantastic Smartphone Projector 2.0.
A year and a few months since it was introduced, the Lomo LC-A 120 continues its exciting journey around the world—from busy streets to scenic far-flung places and everywhere else in between. Here are just some of the many places and faces encountered by this trusty, compact medium format camera (and their adventurous owners, of course!) in recent months, in photographs.
Oh look! Is that some sunshine? With Summer just sneaking round the corner we've lined up a lovely bunch of workshops and events for you all in May, including a couple of special Petzval-based outings and a walk around the Southbank.
Inspired by the work of Emily Soto, London based photographer Radek Bayek recently shot with the Petzval 85 Art Lens. He talks about his work and his experiences throughout his career in this interview.
For Patrice Baunov, film photography is an "intimate medium that shows the interaction between the photographer and his surroundings during a specific moment." In this interview, our well-rounded newcomer from Berlin, Germany talks about his wide range of interests and how he applies Lomography's "Don't think just shoot" attitude on his photography and daily life.
Reality can sometimes be brutal, sinister and strong. The series “Hope” of the photographer Sebastian Palmer, who divides his time between London, UK and São Paulo, Brasil works the hope inside the hard reality for those who come from the countryside to find a better life in São Paulo.

Spanish band Hinds formed in 2011 and in just 2 years have gone from playing for friends in a local restaurant to embarking on a huge world tour. We love their sound & enthusiasm for music so we gave them an LC-A+ & asked them to document their travels. We talked to drummer Amber about these shots.

A few months ago, Göktürk Ayan, shot with the LC-A 120 and exhibited the photos in Lomography Embassy Store İstanbul. Here are some of the photos, along with a short interview with the Turkish photographer.
London based photographer Cat Stevens uses the softer, more subtle aesthetics of film photography throughout her work. Her shoots consist of the familiar light leaks and washed out tones that most film shooters will be familiar with. She has photographed artists such as Deerhunter, PJ Harvey and recently took a series of sun drenched beach shots which adorned The Charlatans' last album cover titled "Modern Nature."
Geologist and rock sample photographer Matthew Davidson has a wealth of knowledge about film photography. He recently shot a series of dramatic double exposure photographs in Aberdeen and Kingussie, which he talks about in this short feature.
