The Week That Was: 3rd week, September 2013


Last week we introduced new features, new interesting topics, a comeback series, and a new series on the Lomography Magazine. Here’s a rundown in case you missed reading them, and a promise of what else is in store.

We featured the work of Marc Hermann, who superimposed vintage crime photos on modern day shots of New York. We promoted the exhibit of Ukranian photographer Alina Rudya in Berlin which by the way still runs through the netire week.

We showed you behind-the-scenes footage of the Petzval engraving process, a photo of Hunter Thompson and talked about the vision and photography of Garry Winogrand.

We also celebrated Talk Like a Pirate Day but mourned the loss of fellow lomographer lakandula.

For more camera and community-related stuff, we shared with you stevemoose76's camera collection.

We are venturing into new stuff, and went as far as featuring a new _Game of Thrones_ game. but of course gave you your normal dose of vintage with artsy _Vogue_ covers from the 1910's to the 1930's.

So what else is new? Well there’s this new series for film buffs, The Director’s Chair, which we inaugurated with a feature on Joel and Ethan Cohen. We also featured two absolutely young, beautiful and talented photographers, twins Ashlie and Amber Chavez, including a gallery of their most important body of work, Symbiotic.

You might have read our fature on renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino last week and today we’re featuring well-respected and highly accomplished photographer Annie Leibovitz. You should also find George Harrison's fisheye selfies interesting, and this recreated video of Michael Jackson's _Thriller_ using Lego bricks rather enjoyable.

And, by the way, we’re running a contest and are on the lookout for your coveted Burning Man Festival photos and a lovely Diana F+ Sahara is at stake!

We at the Lomography Magazine are working hard to bring you more contemporary and relevant content while staying true to our analogue roots. Of course, you’ll still have your daily dose of old school and vintage, the film photography masters of yesteryears, but we also promise to feature more analogue photographers of the now, to share with you new stunning talent of today, to prove that analogue photography is definitely here to stay.

And since we’re plumping up the content of the Magazine for your benefit, we’d like to know what else you’d like to see on our pages. Know someone talented whom you think we should feature?
