A 107 year-old Buddhist Monastery situated in the heartlands represents the cultural and social roots of Singapore’s Chinese Immigrants.
This remarkable landmark is situated right in the heartlands of Singapore. It was first constructed in 1907 when a wealthy trader was moved by a family coming by boat after taking a pilgrimage.
The temple is built in imitation of a Xichang temple in Fujian but it possesses a distinctly Singaporean architecture style. It is also elaborately decorated and it is a place of worship for Buddhist devotees. Once inside, the temple is painted in red and yellow – colours that the Chinese believe are lucky. It is a place rich in history, and definitely a place not to be missed the next time you are in Singapore.

Have you ever imagined what it feels like to shoot with a 100-year-old camera? In the past four months, I have been shooting hundreds of photos with a Contessa Nettel Tessco. I don't know when was the last time its previous owner shot pictures with it. Perhaps 20 to 30 years ago?
Lomography Team member Sarah Knoll shoots her Diana F+ regularly in low light situations. But when she got her hands on our prototype of the Diana Instant Square she took it out into the sunny streets of New York City and created a series of wonderful summer portraits.
A new year entails a new set of visual fads and aesthetics to dominate the year. Earlier this January, many visual trendsetters reported their predictions in various aspects of contemporary art. It's Lomography's time to forecast for future of analogue photography.
Italian photographer Chiara Dondi lives and breathes as an artist of the old world. Intending to provide a sort of vintage charm and mystique into her photographs, her visual language remains in touch with reality with her contemporary female muses. Allow her to welcome you into her world.
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.
