Dear Santa: This is my wishlist for 2012. From Amy.
Christmas. The festive time of the year where we have an excuse to splurge and indulge. Whether it’s spending time away from work so you can bond with your family or devouring Christmas ham and mince pies, we all have a special way to celebrate Christmas. For me, I pamper myself with shopping. This year, however, I spoiled myself early and got myself the new Belair X 6-12 camera. However, this does not stop my shopping desires. So, here is my Christmas wish list to Santa this year! A girl can dream right?
I’m starting to really love shooting with redscale film. Although I stocked up this film in 120, I did not think to load up my fridge with the 35mm version. Now I just hope that Lomography would restock their online store so I can finally stock up!
ITEM 4 – Belair 6-12 Leather Case
This product does not exist…YET! But I’m sure Lomography will produce a beautiful leather case that allows me to protect my new camera during my travel adventures!
2015 has been another amazing year for Lomography and we wouldn’t have done it without your continuous love and support. Allow us to return the favor, our dear lomographer, by making your Christmas wish come true!
This article is dedicated to the Italian street photographer and portraitist Ugo Mulas who masterfully documented the miniature circus of the great sculptor Alexander Calder. To write this tribute I documented a recent Christmas event in my city Como, a wonderful exhibition of vintage toys in a forest of snow-covered pines. Take a look!
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

One Christmas, David Townsend was given the Konstruktor by his wife. It sparked an idea in his head, taking inspiration from Jack Lowe's Lifeboat Station project and his love for photography. He built and beautifully customised the Konstruktor and has just embarked on his own long term analogue project, because a camera is for life, not just for Christmas. Learn more about his project in this interview.
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.
This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
This article is dedicated to Leonard Freed's important reportage of the difficult and dangerous daily work of New York policemen, published in his 1980 book. Here I'll show you photos of public games organized by the various police forces of my hometown Como during last year's Christmas festivities. Take a look!
New York City - the ideal place to go to if you're looking for unstoppable energy. There's plenty of exciting things going on, but you need to be lightning-fast if you want to seize the moment.
