One of the most beloved features on the old site was the user blog – and it’s about to come back. Not to be confused with our Magazine, this is your personal space to write about pretty much anything.
We will launch it later this month, but right now we need some testers who want to give it a try and help us iron out the edges. How to become a tester? Just add a comment to this article with a short entry what you’ve been up to today or what you would like to write about in your own blog… We pick ten (or more) of you then!
Update: Everyone who wants to test this feature please follow the directions here. Or type this url into your browser (replacing your-username with – well – your username): www.lomography.com/homes/your-username/blog, click on “create new blog entry” on the top right and create your first entry. You need to fill out three fields: title for the title, summary for the intro paragraph (to be shown on the overview page and with a bigger font right at the very start and body (which is the entry itself). Let us know here what you think about it and also post the links to your first entries! And please note: this is still Beta and things might be buggy, so don’t enter any super personal stuff up here (yet).
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 Soldiers and laymen whose faces and records have been archived are given another chance to be remembered.
We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
