On the west coast of the U.S. it is hard to beat the Oregon Coast – what a dream!
The Coastline in Oregon is a true treasure to all Oregonians, it can be calm and peaceful, wicked and turbulent – sometimes in the span of hours. I absolutely love all parts of the Oregon Coast, but while having a small amount of time with the LC-A+ I thought it was only proper to show the camera one of my favorite little treasures on the north-central coastline – Gleneden Beach, OR.
Gleneden is a very small community located between the more popular tourist destinations of Depot Bay and Lincoln City. Most people probably don’t even notice that they have passed through Gleneden and I must say “what a shame”. This beach is quite expansive and most often you are the only one strolling down the miles of sand and waves. This is rare for the Oregon Coast and one I’m having a hard time sharing….but really it is an excellent place to LOMO. The only visitors you will encounter are seagulls and foamy waters – you can relax or play – you have the whole place to yourself.
Our friends at Wayward are excited to carry the Lomo'Instant Square in all of their three stores now and called up a bunch of their very own West Coast Amigos to celebrate and test the camera. Austin Santiago is the first one and took it straight to SXSW
Love is in the air here at Lomography and in lieu of our 25th anniversary, what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day by going back to the 101 and the Lomo basics? Here’s how Lomographers captured retro love, in the soulful beat of the 90’s.
We all like to think of what the world will look like when it meets its inevitable end. However, it is human nature to hope that when the time comes, there'll still be a future. Plenty of times did cinema try their hands on imagining a post-apocalyptic future.
What makes Game of Thrones one of the most popular shows (if not the most) to date is its beautiful writing. However, let's give credit to the aesthetics, too. The show's pretty consistent and thematic on showing the colors of "ice and fire", a subtle hint of its visual storytelling.
Alina Baraz, best known for her soulful beats which take listeners away to another world, took the La Sardina and Lomo'Instant Wide on tour, sharing what life was like on the road with the camera in tow.
Ansel Adams' western American landscapes will always be the iconic photographic representation of early America, hence so many other photographers he influenced gave their own visual attempts of canyons and valleys in the West Coast. Here we have a rare, early preview of 19th century East America.
From its charming design to the dreamy photographs it takes, it's hard not to be smitten with the Diana F+. On its 10th year celebration, Lomographers and longtime fans of Lomography's reigning retro queen remember how their first meeting with this lovely camera evolved to an everlasting love.
