You know how sometimes, you look at those photos that only take up part of the frame and wish you could do something with the wasted bits? Mother nature can help you with that!
My Fisheye camera is probably the one that has seen the most daylight, out of all my analog companions. Despite loving the photos, seeing black corners over and over again made me start thinking of ways to spice things up and use that “frame” around my picture. Then it occurred to me: flowers! A whole plethora of colours and subtle curves surrounding a main subject!
I chose to shoot relatively simple things in the fisheye part to just let the flowery blooms fill in the details. So I took the opportunity to register some characteristic places of sweet Lisbon as it is now, as well as simple, mundane things.
What are you waiting for? Go try it as well! :)

Go retro-futuristic with these photographs by Maria Svarbova that show off extremely controlled scenes and figures in mid-movement, no frill or joy, just austere compositions and the remarkable displays of discipline.
In the olden times, traveling was a rather intimate hobby. How so? To share one's journey to the unknown would require effort. Effort, in the sense you'd have to send them a keepsake with notes on the back. So why not relive the tradition of sending postcards with the Lomo'Instant Square?
The '90s was a memorable, incredible decade. Apart from the founding of Lomography and the community, there were other fads and pop culture icons that made noise, forever etching in the minds of many. Remember those Calvin Klein waistbands? We remember them, too.

Collage has been around since the invention of paper in China, and it has evolved throughout history. The earliest and most familiar point is when Surrealists and Dadaists began adapting the technique in photography. Here, we have today's trends on contemporary collage.
Dutch Vice photo editor Raymond van Mil is no stranger to the nightlife. In fact, that's where you can find him most of the time, deep into the fleeting moment but always ready to capture the next big scene.
Russia is the country that mastered resurrection from fallen empires, wars, and doomed anarchy. Like the Firebird, it rises from the ashes. But there is little known to the 21st-century tale of Russia, so here's photographer Frank Herfort to share his images and stories.
