We need to give oir thanks to the former Soviet union for birthing us our sturdy and downright gorgeous Camera Review of the Week!
It’s big. It’s bad and it produces some pretty awesome pictures! Our Camera Review of the Week is the lovely Kiev 6C brought to us by smclemon who gamely shares with us the history and inner workings of this fine specimen. Like most cameras from the FSU, the Kiev is a copy of another camera during its time, namely the Pentacon. It sports a nifty 2.8 lens which mixed with medium format film, completely melts the background away, giving you sweet, sweet bokeh! If you want to know more about the camera, check out the review. Here’s to smcleon for introducing us to this gem!
We are excited to introduce the winner of our very first contest for Indian community, Lomotyohar, Isha Raina. She captured beautiful festive sights of Indian tradition and festivals, giving us a taste of cultural experience.
We have teamed up with the legendary Strand Bookstore for a summer series of LomoWalks. On Saturday July 14th, author Jeremiah Moss is going to join us and provide literary inspiration for participants. He has recently taken one of our Simple Use Film Cameras and created a wonderful series himself.
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. For this week we have coquelicot, a bright red named from the wild corn poppy. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us photographers.
We gave our Simple Use Film Camera to the photographer Nicolas Kuttler: a perfect symbiosis of his spontaneous photography, influenced by the 90's and these 35mm pre-loaded analogue cameras. Nicolas tells us about his photographic practice and the importance of analogue in his work.
There is no way to go but up for creative people. Rest is for the lazy, or so we believe. We like to push our limits and boundaries, yearning to be 'better'. "Better" is a myth, even you, photographer, needs rest.
We gathered a pool of young photographers to give us their insights on photography, being its future, and other things in this interview series for Lomography's 25th anniversary. This time, we take a look at Dia Takacsova's pensive photographs of lands far away.
Many among us live double lives -- a member of the labor force by day, a passionate go-getter by night. it's difficult to break into the art world when you need money -- so most of us keep our creative lives as hobbies. For the photographer, he can do a little bit of both simultaneously.
We entrusted photographer Marta Bevacqua with our Lomo'Instant Square camera to capture her trip to the Svalbard islands. She takes us to an archipelago she always dreamed about and tells us about this unique experience...
We sent a Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens to Cristina Jul, also known as 'Teórica del Caos' - Theorist of Chaos in Spanish. Embark with us on a journey from the primordial chaos to a dreamlike dimension through her gorgeous portraits.
We can always count on Brian Bruno and Audrey Kitching to take us from our screens straight into an analog fairy tale. But when he recently loaded his camera with the first roll of Color Negative F2 / 400 120 film, they still managed to surprise us with this stunning series.
