Paris-based artist Leslie David’s “Souvenirs de Paris” postcards are equal parts historical and chic.
David created the eight-piece series as commissioned by popular hip concept boutique Colette located in Paris, with the theme of “Parisian scenery.” Each postcard features a monochromatic photo of a Parisian landmark selected “from dated archives,” with various colors of paint textures applied on the sides – as if slowly flowing to take over the photographs! Her other work _Painting Please!_ employed of a similar technique.
On the commissioned project for Colette, David explained, “We wanted to associate the unexpected colors and relief of the paint with the romantic feel of the photographs.” _Souvenirs de Paris_ may be postcards, but they look so good we might as well frame and hang them on the wall!

Berlin-based actor, pro skateboarder and photographer Conrad Bauer has a few tricks up his sleeve. Escaping the grey skies of Germany, he took the Lomo'Instant Wide with him on to the streets of Barcelona and shot some material for an upcoming skate video, what he calls "postcards for myself."

Paris-based photographer Anna Rakhvalova knows her timing. She can catch someone's good angle and that perfect stroke of light. All of which made us wonder: Can our new lens live up to her expectations of a good portrait?
Last year, Armin Amirian talked to Lomography about his motivations as an artist, his inspiration for his work and the difficulty of pursuing his passion in the society he belongs to. With that came a collection of images that reflected the concerns he and his fellow countrymen are faced with every day. The Iran-based photographer returns with insight on his new body of work.
Lomography is a network of working photographers and serious hobbyists. It gives equal space to both clusters; after all craft is the main attraction, whether it is Mark Andersen’s thoughtful framing or Hodachrome’s vibrant doubles. And when technique and skill are the topic, questions about the photographer’s training also crop up.
The young artist and Magnum photographer Christopher Anderson published on his agency's website an awesome photo series, one of the images in it a great symbol of freedom, joy of living outdoors, purity, innocence, candor, and girlhood: the bare sole of a female lifted up, taken at the Central Park in New York. Like many other great Magnum photographers, Anderson explored this interesting body part through photographs. For this tribute, I chose a series of bare feet images I took along the promenade of the lake Como. Take a look!
