Every photographer has had his or her taste of portraiture. And my, it is such a delight to capture someone’s physical beauty in film.
We do portraiture in all kinds of feel and form. Some wants them in color, some wants them in black and white. Both are beautiful but admittedly, the two are different when it comes to its dramatic factor.
And in this version of our The Lomography Hipshot Showdown we want to see the best portraits captured in black and white. I’m pretty sure they are plenty so come on and submit!
Only portrait Lomographs shot in black and white film will be qualified for the rumble.
Three winners will be selected and will receive 10 Piggies each. An award will also be pinned in their LomoHomes.
Upload limit: Two per user. Remember that Lomographs linked in the comment box aren’t considered as official entries, only those that are found in the Submissions area.
Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height and meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & three tags.)
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!

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.
"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.
