Located on the southwest corner of Turkey, Marmaris Bay opens up to the Mediterranean sea, and its layout makes it a secure cove for boats as its a natural harbor. The entrance to the bay is from the southwest, through an opening between the land and a peninsula called Adakoy. The peninsula is actually an island which has a thin road connection with the land. From sea level, you can’t really see that connection so it looks like you can get to the open sea. Its Turkish name is Yalancibogaz, which means ‘fake channel’…
Every year around the last weeks of October, the yacht club organizes the Race Week. This year it was between 26th and 30th, and I was able to shoot the last day, from the search and rescue boat. 135 boats were racing in 6 different divisions, the last day it was a route forming a triangle inside the bay. Being on the search and rescue boat, I also witnessed an accident, two yachts crashed near the finish buoy and a sailor happened to have his hand between the two boats, I think he broke his wrist. We rushed him to the ambulance on shore which was ready as we were heading for the docks. Cool timing.
It was impressive to see Marmaris from inside the bay, covered with colorful (though mostly white) sails.
We welcome photographer Meg Hewitt into Lomography Magazine as she permits us an in-depth view of her gritty black-and-white, grainy, analogue world, reminiscent of the Provoke-era — same style, same place, different time.
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.
They say it's a small world, but our critter friends beg to differ. From an ant's point of view, the world is vast and overwhelming. Lomography's Fisheye No. 2 mimics this unique angle for a fresher photographic perspective.

Jesse Macht, aka musician Race The Tide, created tons of instant memories shot using the Lomo'Instant Automat while out on a recent DIY tour across the country in collaboration with Airstream and Pendleton. He shares the photographs and the tour diary with us here.
First of all, I really appreciate being able to join the TEN AND ONE Residency Week in Vienna along with super cool Lomographers! We could never have any forgettable memories. The members are 11 people from 10 countries. I thought it'd be difficult to communicate with each other because of our different cultures, languages, personalities, etc. But we didn't have any worries. We respected each other, above all we are Lomographers!
Photographer Julia Berezina in collaboration with Curated by Girls, a globally-inclusive platform that works to showcase artistic talent regardless of race or gender, chats with us about incorporating personal life into her work and how shooting on film affects the meaning of her photographs.
Last week, the TEN AND ONE winners flew in from all over the world to enjoy a week of workshops and exchange about their love for photography. I had the pleasure of spending a day with them and the Lomography staff, going on one of the famous LomoWalks.
