The works of renowned Post Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh transcend to film, whether by intention or accident. Here are some photos from the community that resemble so much of artist's paintings.
Not all photographs are meant to be seen in vibrant, saturated colors, and neither are they always suitable for in black and white. Lomography welcomes yet another innovation from KONO!
