In September Cologne will be the worldwide capital for photography lovers. That is why we organize a huge LomoMatrix. So who’s in?
You might already know the videos from Berlin, London or São Paulo and now it is time for Cologne to do a very own LomoMatrix.
To build a LomoMatrix, you need a group of people in a wide circle, each one with a camera and one person in the middle. The person in the middle of the circle then does something and the people around the circle take photos at the same time. Single pictures from each camera are arranged and displayed consecutively to produce an orbiting viewpoint of an action frozen in time and space.
We have the perfect spot to do our LomoMatrix. It is the the LomoMap Germany in front of Cologne central station.

Another year, another grind. We already know film photography's about to become mainstream again this year, so here's our predictions for film photography trends that will be big in the community (and the world)!
Solène Ballesta is a Parisian photographer who started photography at 15 years old. This talented photographer was awarded in 2014 by the special mention of the young fashion photography Picto Awards. In her shots, Solène drives us to an enchanted world. For this series, she used the Daguerreotype Achromat Art Lens and she's telling us the story of a woman who is waiting for someone or something in her small theater and who decides to venture to the morning mist. “It is the uncertainty that charms one. A mist makes things wonderful.” said Oscar Wilde.
Today we sailed with professional snowboarder Victor Daviet for a funny road trip. A photography and snowboarding lover (obviously!), Victor took the LC-A + during a trip organized by Vans and Act Snowboarding magazine.
The art of design intertwined with social networks and textile articles, we mix it all up, include photography and there it is -- magic happens. At least that is what Rita Cordeiro ends up giving us: beautiful images through her Instagram, either in a personal approach or for some specific brand.
It seems that everything that goes forward also goes digital. Is there any merit left as to why we continue to shoot film? These people share their reasons why the analogue grind is and will always be alive.
