I thought I was in a foreign place because the beach sounds foreign.
So how was the start of your December? I had a big exam taken during the last week of November. I was in Cebu the whole time you guys spending time joining competitions, submitting film, location and camera reviews, and checking out the winners of some recent competition. It was a tough one for me, so when I came back to my homeland, some friends of mine decided to have a little spin and take a break.
We took a boat and went to Guimaras Island (this place is famous for its mangoes), traveled around 30 minutes and dropped down Kelapang Beach. Pretty nice place. We arrived there five in the afternoon and had a little kwentuhan over the shore while gazing on the nearest island. Took a cabin, had a drink, and later got all the Z’s spelling right under my nose.
The next morning, it was low tide. We tried to walk straight to that “rocky” little island and had fun. We took some pictures. Later, we realize that we have to go back to the shore of the Kelapang Beach in case the tide would get high.
So there’s my story. It was a nice trip. We ate a lot of shrimps and crabs… my favorite! And some mangoes too!
I visited Tibet in early June 2009. It was a group trip with three other friends including fellow lomographer, @venusattack. Tibet to me is a mysterious and untainted place. We wanted to go on a trip there because of its breathtaking mountainous scenery and monasteries.

When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
I am a New York-based multimedia artist trying to discover a connection between sound and horticulture. In this article, I explore a multi-generational permaculture farm in Orcas Island, Washington, USA.
A year and a few months since it was introduced, the Lomo LC-A 120 continues its exciting journey around the world—from busy streets to scenic far-flung places and everywhere else in between. Here are just some of the many places and faces encountered by this trusty, compact medium format camera (and their adventurous owners, of course!) in recent months, in photographs.
At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
Because here’s the thing about film photography that I doubt a digital camera can give you: Permanence, photographs that truly and literally stay with you, not just in a physical form but also in your head and in your heart.
Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."
