Photo Stories: A darker shade of fun by rikki b

Welcome to Photo Stories, a new series that lives to tell the tales behind photos from the community, as told by the talented Lomographers who shot them.

Credits: rikkib

Contrary to what you might have thought upon seeing the image, our photo story this week is not one inspired by vampires or immortal creatures. The tale is actually a very simple yet nostalgic one. Here the story from rikkib herself.

“This pic was from the second roll of film I ever shot with my Holga. I remember how excited I was to get the shots back from the lab. The shot is of my friend Julia mucking around on the river foreshore after one too many special drinks. I think the wine flying from the glass looks pretty ace.”

The magic and power of analogue photography to make your everyday extraordinary is exemplified in this photo.

If you have a story to tell behind your photo, feel free to send us a message through the Lomography Magazine LomoHome or shoot us an email. we look forward to sharing your stories.

Photo Stories is a series dedicated to sharing the tales behind your photos — from your point of view.

    Meet our LomoGuru: zulupt

    Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge. The city where he lives is full of people who are interested in analog photography, but the lack of easy access to film and equipment poses a challenge for them to pursue their passion. To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks. Let's give a loud round of applause to Hugo Pereira, better known in the community as zulupt, our LomoGuru from Marinha Grande, Portugal!

  • Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois on My Last Day at Seventeen

    Doug DuBois spent five summers photographing the small neighborhood of Russell Heights in Ireland to capture the essence of coming of age: the inevitable loss of youth and the imminent transition into adulthood. Those four years resulted in his latest book, My Last Day At Seventeen. The book is a visual tale told through a collection of photographs and gives an alternative perspective through a comic narrative around the same subject. This creative combination of two distinct narratives in one book not only works wonderfully in visual terms; it also serves as an essential tool that lets the reader dig deeper into the story being told, making one go back to the book over and over again, yet from a new perspective, every single time.
