It’s the New Year! Now that we’re done partying hard and shooing away all the negative vibes from last year, it’s time to go back to basics and start off from scratch. Does that sound like a good idea? Here’s to new beginnings!
New Year’s Resolutions are a bit passe and cliche by now, so we’ll just stick with the basics – a new year signifying a new beginning. Whether you religiously stuck to your resolutions last year, or relapsed back in to your old ways just a couple of hours in, we’re positive that 2013 is going to be one helluva year! For this rumble, we want to see photos of new beginnings – your newborn baby, your last pack of cigarettes, or maybe even the new lover you just met last night! Winners get Piggies to go towards a new Lomographic beginning!
Prizes: 1st place gets 20 Piggies while 2 runners up get 10 Piggies apiece.
Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
Upload Limit: 10 photos
Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px.

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!

"Documentary fiction' is the best way to describe the overall work of Dutch photographer *Mariken Wessels*. Together with her own photographs and found images, letters, objects, notes, etc., she would recreate something out of them until a new reality is shown.
Whether documentary or portraiture, American photographer *Steve Schapiro* knows the best of both worlds. First gaining the reputation as a photojournalist, and capturing the key moments of the African-American Civil Rights movement, he is also known as the photographer of the most iconic people.
