There is a little piece of history in my town and it’s called ‘de pier.’ It was built in 1894 as a tourist attraction also used as a place for boats who can’t reach the beach for loading dock. Built in Art-nouveau style, it became a very popular attraction at the Belgian coast. On the 15th of October 1914 the Pier was burned down by the Germans because of strategical reasons. Only the skeleton remained.
In the year 1930 they rebuilt the Pier. In the second world war the Germans gave an order to sergeant Karl Hein Keselberg to destroy the pier completely but he ignored the direct order and for that he was later honored by the city of Blankenberge.
Today the Pier is still standing and is now a bar/restaurant, also a cinema. Of course they have to renovate it a little bit every once and a while.
Pripyat is a modern day Atlantis. The inhabitants of the Soviet town had to run from the nuclear disaster and therefore it has been preserved more or less in the state of 1986. I made my way up to the North of Ukraine thirty years after the catastrophe. This is the second part of this adventure.

The 25th anniversary of Lomography is not just about celebrating the past, but also the present and future. For this little cafe in Larnaca, there's nothing more regal than to represent and create the LomoWall for Cyprus.
Colors mean differently for all walks of life. The color Cobalt is one of the oldest blues recorded in history. Lomography tries to understand the meaning of each complex color found in the gradient and what it means for most of us photographers.
