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!
At the end of October last year, René Burri, a great master of photography of the last century, passed away. As a tribute to him, I would like to show you some photos that I took last month at EXPO 2015 in Milan, which was inspired by his series featuring the world's fairs held in Osaka, Okinawa, and Montreal. Take a look!
Community newcomer tomcaat from California creates mind-boggling and surreal photographs using the double exposure trick. In this interview, he talks about his inspirations and shares some of his favorite photographs.
This is the story of a negative and the memory of loved ones that are gone, but are still present on an old analogue celluloid film. It's the emotional power of analogue photography that lasts forever.
Tamara Lichtenstein is a 26 years old photographer based in Texas. We first noticed her beautiful work couple of years ago when she amazed us with her analogue photography. We got the opportunity to talk to Tamara once again and see what has change since we last spoke to her.
Last week at Lomography NYC, we were lucky to have Emily Murphy of the garden design blog Pass the Pistil visit us for a special workshop. She talked abut how gardening is a different kind of analogue, and not that different from photography. Learn more here!
The touristic appeal of Japan lies not only in its castles and flower storms, but also in the mix of unique practices and Occidental influences. The duality is evident in Tokyo and even in Osaka, which has gained more visitors over the years. A port city, Osaka has retained its 'merchant' status with a battery of retail shops amid an area of cultural interest.
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
Among the many public events of last year's winter in my hometown Como (that I documented with my albums and with my articles), I think that the most important was the opening ceremony of the jubilee proclaimed by Pope Francis. I photographed everything with my beloved Canon AV-1. Take a look!
