Along with team Nixon and Lomography’s latest novelty, the Petzval Lomography x Zenit Art Lens , the LC-A celebrates its third decade at home, in Russia.

But the LC-A + did not only capture the cold beaches of Kamchatka, it also did not let go of the Nixon team and followed the riders all around even during their well earned moments of rest. You can tell it was a little chilly up there, can’t you?

    An epic adventure made reality, the beauty of the place makes contrast with the surfers playing with the powerful waves. The video footage is superb! I have shared with a friend whose parent is Russian in origin, perhaps he will make one day pilgrimage to Kamchatka!
