You might get sick of New York being in the media reels all the time, but this city has rightfully earned its reputation, and it's inarguable. A favorite among photographers, street shooter Daniel Arnold is one of them.
A new year means a new set of goals and resolutions. Have you been listing your objectives for 2018? It's time to wake up from the holiday lethargy and be the go-getter you're meant to be. Allow this Monday Moodboard of ours to give you the right push!
Being a great street photographer doesn't mean you should be shooting at famous capitals for their architecture or their visual appeals -- it's taking the heart of humanity in the city -- and the Big Apple just happens to win everyone at that.
LomoAmigo Sophia Ragomo went behind-the-scenes with Nashville-based alternative rock band Halfnoise in New York City to show what a day in the life of the band is really like. From soundcheck to pre-show to performance, Sophia was there to capture all the action. Check out her photos here.
Daniel Arnold may just be one of the most important names in contemporary street photography. Known for his raw takes on New York City life, he leaves no detail glamorized and allows himself to get into their personal space -- a task only for the fearless shooters in the concrete jungle.
Hold up! The holidays aren't over yet. Christmas spirit continues to live on through winter, so expect late meet-ups with families and friends.. and your photographer peers. If you've already gone bankrupt during the rush, well, a little improvisation might help.
Lomography NYC had the opportunity to collaborate recently with The Studio Museum of Harlem, New York City. Students of the Expanding the Walls residency helped from start to finish on the building of a LomoWall, which was then debuted at an Uptown Fridays party!
The weather gets chillier, and the days cozier! Mornings become lethargic, sleep is your new best friend, but life beckons to be lived at maximum effort. Kids to feed, bills to pay, Christmas shopping to do, right? So go get that cup, drink it all up!
Robert Herman has been a street photographer since his student time at New York University in the late 1970's. Back then, he started to capture New York, the city's beautiful diversity of people, reflections and unique coincidental moments on rolls and rolls of analogue film.
