Home Sweet Home

Your Lomohome is the center of your Lomographic World. Here everything comes together. Your favorite and most popular photos, your archive of albums and messages from other users.

You can find out about other Lomographers on the LomoHomes overview page. Here we showcase handpicked LomoHomes everyday, putting the spotlight on the creative talent in our community. As it is tradition we will award our LomoHome of the Day a whopping 50 piggy points for being awesome!

Make friends

What would Lomography be without your friends and people whose photos keep you amazed? Simply go over another Lomographer’s home and press the follow button under his avatar and you’ll get a notification about his or her activities in your feed.

That’s what friends are for

A little like goes a long way! Let others know what you like about their photographs with a nice comment, ask them what techniques they used, give them tips for their experiments or just drop by for a high five! Once you’re on a Lomographer’s photo page you can simply move with the left and right buttons and like the photos by pressing “L”.

What more can we say, get some good LomoKarma and spread the love!

We’re far from finished

Our small but dedicated team is working full throttle on finishing your LomoHome. We know that we are still missing some of the features that you were used to like the messaging and LomoWalls but we can ensure you we are on it and as soon a feature is ready to roll out we’ll let you know about it.

    I can't find the lomographers I used to follow, neither get notifications of their newest work. Is it an issue or am I just not looking at the right place?

    @srcardoso We are still working on the feed where you will see all activity from your contacts. It should be ready soon! For now you can only get notification for things that are happening on your photos or articles.

    Am I the only one who hates the new site? So my wall got deleted, and all my awards and friends comments? Also the main part that is a pain is all the links for my photos changed. So everywhere I posted a link to a photo on my Lomo home, I have to go back and change. Why did the links have to change?

    Another issue: since the new site is online, it doesn't really render well on my Samsung galaxy note 10.1. I'm using Chrome (up to date) and all I see us text, as website looked like in the nineties. Why?
    I tested with a same Chrome version and a Galaxy S3 and everything looks fine..???!!

    The new site looks great! However, I can't find my messages and friends…? Should I wait and see when they are added or am I just blind?

    @sibu_sen You can find your messages if you click on the cute paper plane in the top right next to the flash. The friends list is not back yet. I guess we will find it in our dashboards when it's done.

    Hi again. Don't want to be annoying, but there's more issues with rendering. The homepage "www.lomography.com", at the section "some interesting things" all the text is condensed in one column. Seen with firefox v. 35.0.1 on Windows 7.

    @srcardoso Thanks for catching that! We will be looking into it!
