I was engaging in my routine “stumble upon” of LomoHomes and Lomographs and happened upon a bunch of awesome portraits taken with the LC-Wide, which is of course the ultimate portrait snapper owing to its super wide-angle lens and close focus zone. I felt as though I was being stared right at – a case of the observer becoming the observed! Here’s a collection of my favorite portraits (either people, animal, or a mythological hybrid of the two) found in and among your LomoHomes.
And listen to this song below while you’re browsing the gallery. Enjoy!

When I went to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone I was deeply impressed by Pripyat. The city was home to most of the workers of the nuclear power plant and evacuated two days after the disaster. Now it's a larger than life museum about the Soviet Union. It is the last city of the CCCP.
Among the many public events of last year's winter in my hometown Como (that I documented with my albums and with my articles), I think that the most important was the opening ceremony of the jubilee proclaimed by Pope Francis. I photographed everything with my beloved Canon AV-1. Take a look!
Vicuna is one of my best friends and wherever the wind takes him I will catch a paraglide to meet him. I did so, when he chased turtles in Polynesia and now, when he is digesting cheese in Switzerland. My prerogative was to hit a mountain on my birthday and so we did.
Mere days before my two week adventure I spontaneously inherited Lomography’s original gem of immediate satisfaction. Armed with the most creative take on instant photography yet, I was able to see Salamanca, Oviedo, Santander, and Madrid through a rare lens.
With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.
Blind Austrian alpinist and extreme athlete Andy Holzer, known as the "blind climber", took 4 of his friends on what was planned as a relaxing ski-touring trip on Antarctic Peninsula. In their backpacks, an LC-A+ and LC-Wide. Thomas Beck documents their adventure in his travel log series.

No other country can easily dance between the lines of natural lands and urban space than of Austria. Tread lightly, for in this landlocked country one may find himself strolling the streets, to the feet of the Alps shortly.
We had an epic Film Photography Day celebration this year at the Lomography Gallery Store NYC. Our friends at Sacred Tattoo NYC were kind enough to transform the gallery into a tattoo shop so Lomographers could show their analog pride forever and ever with a free camera tattoo!
