David Burnett has a talent to spot the right place and time to make a great picture. But this time around, though, it was him that was spotted. Check out this candid picture of David Burnett taking pictures at the Olympics with an analogue camera!
Your eyes are not fooling you! That is actually David Burnett at the Olympic 2012, taking pictures with an old school analogue camera. How cool is that! Still not convinced? Here’s a close up.
David Burnett has plenty of experience as a photojournalist. His works covers 4 decades of news and the people in the news. He is currently the co-founder of Contact Press Images,the New York based photojournalism agency, now entering its 37th year. He has photographed seven summer Olympics.
The photo you will see next is a very iconic photo of the Olympics in 1984 by Burnett himself. It was a 3,000-meter women’s footrace showdown between Mary Decker and Zola Budd. Burnett was feeling too overcrowded at the finish line, so he walked halfway back up the track. It was a good decision indeed, because it gave him this very picture that made the Olympics mean more than just sports.

Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
Andrej Russkovskij AKA Andrea Russo is an avid film photographer and active community member who has a soft spot for portraits, making him the quintessential Petzval Amigo.

American photographer Gordon Parks documented one of the most significant points of American history and has chronicled the fight for equal rights of African-Americans. making his lifework one of the most important collections to this day.
We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.
Stu Chapman is the founder of Indisposable Concept, a project to encourage people around the world to share what's indispensable about film. What rocks his world as an ambassador of the analogue lifestyle? We asked him to show us with a Konstruktor F.
Our new LomoAmigo Acey Slade has a pretty cool job. He's a touring bassist for musicians like Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. Even though music is his whole life, Acey still considers his photography to be much more important work. In this interview, Acey talks about his favorite cameras and a mysterious disposable camera lying around his band's tour bus—the developed pictures were nothing like his bandmates imagined!
Yes, you read that right: Lomography has once again come up with a cool new product!

His work has the anachronistic charm of hand-tinted photographs and the trippy flavor of rock. Sometimes too his portraits of Lana Del Rey, Kevin Parker and Jim James cross over to the territory of graphic design and pop art, skewing definitions of what a picture is. Neither are his views on photography straitlaced, as this exciting interview with Lomography proves.
It can be said that photography is more than just a click on the camera, it makes the moments, people and emotions live forever. This was confirmed to us by an exceptional Dutch photographer Ferry Verheij, whose photographs represent stories of all those people and places he had a chance to know.
