It’s time to see who got the best shots of random strangers we normally disregard on our daily grind!
Shooting a stranger is part-art, part-mystery. The appeal of taking pictures of people you don’t know is that you capture the moment of your encounter as it happens, no posing, no questions asked. With the new Lubitel Universal 166+ you it could not be easier to shoot strangers, looking down the viewfinder puts your unsuspecting stranger at ease as you do not stare at him/her by peering through a viewfinder!
Time to announce our winners of the Shoot a Stranger with the Lubitel+ rumble who serve as inspiration to take shots of even the most mundane acts and activities – in crisp and clear medium format! 10 piggies are on their way to the following Lomographers!
For the winners, please head on to our Rumble FAQ and our Piggy Matters FAQ for queries. Possible verification/validation of submissions may be administered. Congratulations and thank you for continuously supporting our rumbles!

Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?

The best artists are not the popular or the wealthy ones. Not all the time, and definitely not 'often'. It's the passionate artist, who's a hero of his or her own right. Japanese photographer Mii Yatogi breathes, lives, and sleeps analogue. Read our interview with her here at Lomography Magazine.
