Appreciating visual imagery can vary from one person to another. Young and talented photographer Dennis Auburn had us staring at his works for minutes before clicking on to see the next one.
Every day we browse through hundreds if not thousands of photos here at the Lomography HQ , both coming from the digital and analogue territories. But there always comes a time when we have to do a double back to see if the amazing visuals are indeed done in-camera. *Dennis Auburn* and his photographic body of work on film did not disappoint us during our search today.
Dennis Auburn is a 21 year old photographer based in Houston, Texas and his young career is already littered with commissioned work for different sites and publications. One look at his photographs and you already have an idea to why his works stand out.
Auburn is all about shooting with film cameras and his photographs offer a dream-like look into reality. While most of his works center on the idea of youth, his approach in taking photographs can be considered timeless. No matter what age his audience may be, acknowledgement and praises like “stunning” and “beautiful” are almost always expected.
One thing to watch out for in Auburn’s photographs is his constant use of natural and artificial light as a means to create amazing in-camera effects like light flares and intentional light painting.

In 2015 we had been fortunate enough to talk with photographers, with practices and insights unique from one another, from all over the globe. And not only were we able to see their works; we were also able to dig a little deeper and find out what makes each one of them tick. In this special recap, we present a handpicked selection of insightful quotes from some of our most memorable interviews this year.
In the work of Binh Danh, art is space for the unnamed to be seen. When war is the theme every detail counts. How does one person tackle this massive issue, where death and the value of lives intersect? A one-man job becomes a job about other men. And so for his series "Immortality: The Remnants of the Vietnam and American War" he made chlorophyll prints to express the indelible mark of war on various lands. Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
