A trip to Ouarzazate (Morocco) also called The door of the desert. The town is also noted a film-making for so many international film companies.
One month ago i went to Ouarzazate (Morocco) and its the capital of Souss-Massa-Draâ in the southern-central Morocco.
The town is chiefly inhabited by Berbers, who constructed many of the prominent kasbahs and building for which the area is known for. The town and surrounding area is also a noted film-making location, with Morocco’s biggest studios inviting many international film companies to shoot their films. Films such as Star Wars, The Last Temptation of Christ , The Mummy or Gladiator were shot in the Ouarazate area.
I go there with a lomography RedScale, for increase those red tones of the desert and a Velvia for the saturation of the colors.
Lomography is always on the lookout for experimental and creative film, because we want to keep the love for analogue alive! We’re devoted to continually adding new and exciting films to our ever-expanding collection of photography products, both from our own production line and partnering together with likeminded companies. So in our ongoing quest to do so, we have teamed up with our friends at KONO! The Reanimated Film to share a totally new and exciting film with you — KONO! Donau 35mm Film!
UK-based photographer Simeon Smith is a true analogue apostle, sampling camera sounds to make interesting rhythms, then shooting film to make his music videos. He is also a huge Leica fan so we decided to lend him the new Jupiter 3+ Art Lens to test out.

While many of her contemporaries would opt for creating carefree imagery, Klara Johanna Michel heavily stylizes her subjects to seemingly echo the aesthetics of an early artistic movement. Please note that some of the images in this post are NSFW.
It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
Experimentation is the bloodline of Lomography. The nucleus of the operation is an open mind. This has made digital strides possible, but even then, the movement is still beholden to film photography. The reasons range from philosophical to practical. The scope also includes three fields that make analog photography challenging—and yes, quite the daring opposite of digital ease.
We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
