A well organized swap of rubbish for cash, and a weekly stop before a trip to the coffee shop.
In the city where I live, beverage containers are not garbage. Drink cans, bottles, and boxes are worth at least 10 cents if you return them to a ‘bottle depot’. There are many independently owned depots in the city, but the Beverly Bottle Depot is my favorite. My 5 year old son and I make a weekly trip with all of the containers that we have saved up or found on our walks during the week. We dump our bags of ‘empties’ in a waist level tray that measures about 1 metre by 2 meters and wait for the staff to sort and count them. Soon we are walking out with a few bills and some change – sometimes with a quick stop at the bubble gum machine on the way out – and on our way to the neighbourhood coffee shop to buy some treats!

Let's take a trip down to memory lane and revisit all the memories, goals, and breakthroughs before we move forward to another year of analogue wonder and opportunity. Here's what Lomography was up to in 2018.
NYC based photographer Christopher Logan is well known for his unique way of capturing the fashion scene from around the globe on film.

A little while ago, Lomographer Matthew Alexander organized a LomoWalk for analog photographers in his hometown, beautiful Beacon, NY. He wanted to get to know and connect the film photography community of his town and invited everyone on a Saturday walk on Main Street.
Italian photographer Andrea Taurisano's been a lover of the analogue life for the past 15 years, and there's no sign of stopping him. For World Pinhole Photography Day, , he shares some of his dreamy Diana Pinhole shots to the Lomography community.
