One thing is for sure - people all around the globe love celebrations. Just the thought of going on holidays and spending time with your loved ones is enough of a reason to celebrate and fully enjoy your days off. In many countries, Christmas is celebrated differently depending on the culture.
Last week, the TEN AND ONE winners flew in from all over the world to enjoy a week of workshops and exchange about their love for photography. I had the pleasure of spending a day with them and the Lomography staff, going on one of the famous LomoWalks.
From a snippet that aired on CBS Sunday Morning, "Capturing the Moment" is a segment that focused on photojournalist Eddie Adams, who won his Pulitzer in 1969 for his famous image of a Vietcong prisoner about to be executed at a street in Saigon. Other photographers share their inklings as well.
Even after a decade after its introduction, the Diana F+ remains one of the most well-loved analogue cameras in the Lomography Community. But what makes this ever classy camera an instant classic? Let these lomographers and LomoAmigos share their love for the Diana F+!
Irene was born and raised in Larnaca, Cyprus. She studied Audio and Video Production in Cyprus and Photography in Italy. She returned to Cyprus and worked as a photojournalist for many years, until 2011, when she decided to open up a little photography shop and introduce Lomography to the locals. She's been the Lomography Authorized Dealer ever since. She is known for her love for analog and people call her "Khal-lomo" (a reference to Game of Thrones' Khaleesi = Queen)!
To celebrate the 25 year anniversary of Lomography we are building an 8.5 meter long Lomowall on Ganton st, just off of Carnaby St in the centre of London. This is one of a series of hundreds of LomoWalls dotted across the globe. Join us for the launch party on November 9th from 6pm.
