I live in a place of the world where you can’t miss the change of the seasons. But even in the placidity of snow, winter can look different. Take a look at the changing times around my town in these analogue photos and note the parallelism.
The first one is from February which means we had had snow for some 3 months.
The second one is an evening of snow. The ground was clean 12 hours prior to taking the photo.
I seem to be fascinated with train tracks. The first one is an unsupervised crossing, and the second one is from a train station where a whole piece of the fence is missing so you can just run in there freely and snap away to your hearts content.
Again on the tracks. The second one here is from the same night as the top first one. I’ve never seen such a large amount of snow come down so quick.
Olso vs. my hometown Luleå, also Winter vs. Summer. All the daylight vs. barely any daylight. Different kinds of blue. I like them both.
Old tire vs. new tire
Spring vs. winter. My cat coming to say hi vs. my cat going off on a daily stroll of his.
Have you discovered some interesting parallels in all of your pictures? Maybe you have a lot of juxtaposition going on in your pictures? Out of these parallels, which one is your favourite? I think it’s my cat Gizmo but I might be biased. :)
If we are to make literal interpretations of parallel universes, they would probably look something like these. Step into our gallery and while you're at it, find out how you can earn piggies and have your own photographs be featured on the Online Shop!
Growing up in a small town in the middle of California, Kayla Varley knew she wanted to see more of the world, and explore it through her photography. Ever since she was a child, photography was a creative escape to a whole different world. A world where moments are being captured forever.
Everything I had fit into eight boxes and two suitcases. That’s all I had collected in my 22 years on earth, eight boxes and two suitcases. My friends and I moved to Brooklyn in the dead of winter, just after a huge snowstorm. I came from California and had no real experience living in snow. All of it was magical to me.

2015 was a super exciting year for the world of creative photography. We introduced new products, paid homage to analogue photography and collaborated with like-minded folks. If you missed any of the festivities, don't worry - we promise that there will be more fantastic things to come next year! In the meantime, here's a look back into all the happy Lomography memories!
Looking for a reliable flash? Consider the Lomography Ringflash, which throws an even burst of light around your subject! We scoured the Magazine and found these community-written reviews for you to peruse.
London became a cultural capital in the 60s, wielding influence around the world. Though the golden days of mod were short-lived, Lomography remembers the Big Smoke's contributions to the arts and generations that followed.
If you’ve been living on Neptune for the past week (wait, how the hell did you get there?), you might have missed the memo – The brand new Lomo’Instant Wide has landed! Pre-orders are flying in for the world’s most creative wide format instant camera and lens system and we’ve decided to launch a competition to spice up the fun even further.
In an age where digital cameras provide more room for trial-and-error, practicality, and perfection, the revival of analogue cameras among photographers, artists, and hobbyists marks a shift of the standards of beauty in the art world.
Photo travelogues are often sprightly, the forms defined and the colors sharp. Réka Koti has a completely different interpretation. A location is a basis for experiments. Nature is a double-exposure detail or a nebular extension of her model’s frock. Branches and leaves are blurred to look like paint strokes. The outcome is mysterious, and Lomography can’t help asking: What is the alchemy behind these dusky pictures?
We're grateful for the overwhelming support from all our KickStarter backers. For those who were late to the party, we're happy to let you know that the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens is now available for pre-order in the shop! Estimated delivery date slated for January 2017!
Lomography and Nixon have again joined forces for the Nixon Surf Challenge 2015. In celebration of this partnership, exhibitions will be held in different spots around the globe.. The centerpiece of these exhibits will be the photographs taken by the surfers and the photographers during this year's challenge, which was held in Hainan.
In today's fast-paced world where many things can be had in an instant, Matt Slater embraces the slower, almost meditative, and arguably more fulfilling practice of making photographs through traditional darkroom processes.
Shh! We've got a secret matter at hand, and it's coming at you at the speed of light!
We're being as mysterious as the Cosmos about our new out-of-this world product, constantly orbiting around our big reveal. But the eclipse will pass and soon the stars will align. Until then, there must be some questions floating around in the universe, right? Well, there's no need to look to the stars to find your answer! Stay on Lomography's wavelength as we kick into hyperdrive. Let your imagination skyrocket and see if you can decipher our otherworldly clues!
