Ever since photography has been invented in the early 19th century, people had themselves being photographed. However, in times of smartphone cameras, selfies and social media, recording our daily life in pictures has become a Leitmotiv, a metaphor for a restless society. In her latest solo exhibition, Estonian fine art photographer Sohvi Viik questions the necessity of modern photography.
Since Alive was founded in 2010 with one mission: to uphold film photography despite the steadily increasing popularity of digital imaging. It aims to provide guidance and information to analogue photography enthusiasts through its website, which has become a platform for showcasing the creativity and techniques of its followers. Since live has also ventured into developing products to bolster the practice of analogue photography and its Bento Film Case has proven to be very useful. Lomography talks to Since Alive’s Wind Hui and designer Stephanie Ho, co-collaborators for Since Alive’s Bento Film Case.

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.
The paintings of Rembrandt van Rijn and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio are known for their mastery of brightness and contrast in portraiture or scenery. Their influence on the visual arts has extended even to photography.
