The Essen Taste of Lomography: LomoFood Competition


Essen, A taste Magazine, sits down the table with Lomography again. While sipping hot tea and tasting delicious pastries, guess what we’ve managed to come up with?

There is no use in denying it. Food is an essential part of our daily life and culture.

We worship it in any form, color, dish, and taste. Starting from appetizers, the roast recipes from our grandmothers and aunts, all the way down to the ones we invented just so that we won’t have an empty stomach.

Essen I A taste Magazine, inspired by the beauty of food, proposed itself as one of the first online magazines that is able to delve across the culinary world, not only sharing interesting recipes, but also exploring the absolute aesthetics.

All over the world, food is the main ingredient of every culture, able to unite and identify people. This is also shown in the huge amount of pictures that immortalize food in every form and aspect from our Lomographic archive or anywhere in the world.

Get inspired by these shots

Now, what we want is just to see you in the kitchen!
Choose anything yummy to shot. It could be a simple table set, your most successful creams Brulè ever, the turkey you’ve cooked for Thanksgiving, or the makings of your favourite dish. Basically, we want to know all the aspects of food through your photos.

Get inspired by these shots
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload limit: 5 photos.
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)


Plus, Essen I A taste Magazine will dedicate a photo shoot to all the photographers and images selected.

Essen I A taste Magazine and Lomography are already frothing at the mouth with anticipation, so wherever you are and whatever is your culinary tradition, run to the kitchen and make us starve with your pictures.

Let’s start the LomoCooking!
