It started with a whisper and then grew to a buzz at Lomography HQ. What was Neil Gaiman doing here and could we get an autograph?
Long time LomoAmigo in the fullest extent of the word, Neil Gaiman stopped by the Lomography head quarters while accompanying his wife Amanda Palmer on tour. Luckily for us, it was a charming afternoon spent talking about literature, music, analogue photography as well as creating a new special edition camera.
Did you have to do a double take? Yes, we did say we are planning on creating a special edition camera with Neil! Hope you’re as excited as we are. We had a great brainstorming session and there are some great ideas floating around, so stay tuned for updates on this new collaboration! One thing we can say is the camera will be ready in 2013.
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.
You won't believe what we have in store for you with the launch of our newest mystery product. What a crazy idea, they thought. It can't be done, they said. But at Lomography, we know that there's a first time for everything. So we've decided to travel back in time and have a quick look at some of the unbelievable ‘firsts’ of photographic history. Could these milestones have anything to do with our mystery product?
An old-school movie theatre and a smartphone walk into a bar...

We sat down with Xavier Unwin, the Creative Director at Luckies of London, to talk about their fantastic Smartphone Projector 2.0.
Brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence grew up playing and mixing electronic music in their garage.

An experimental streak is the fuel of borderless, intriguing and rebellious art. It's what Lomography toasts to in photography and beyond. In 2015, we had a grand time talking to artists who expand our notions of creativity.
Here at LomoLab NYC, we are always busy processing films that Lomographers shot with various models. Recently, Wisconsin-based photographer Jake Whalen wrote us to ask if we could process 70-year-old negatives, and we gladly stepped up to the plate!
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
