Brighton has a great seafront with a pier, night clubs, restaurants, places to run, bike or bowl. But the best part of the seafront is the beach.
It is not particularly sandy (mostly shingle, pebbles, and rocks) but still fun in the sun, cool and refreshing in the evening with a barbecue and great for hanging with friends. As I live in Brighton, I regularly visit the beach with friends and family and always enjoy it even when it’s super windy in the winter months!
Throughout the year I have taken photos in and around Brighton and always find I have the most of the beach with its burnt out pier on the west and amusement pier in the centre alongside a beach that runs from Hove all the way through Brighton and up to the marina.

"I have been living in Portland for about 8 years now, off and on and it does feel like home. It is a great place to come back to after traveling. But I think I am happiest on the road or traveling, it feels kind of second nature to me," explains Portland-based photographer Jeff Luker.

Travelling like the Chinese is a tough call to make theses days, as they are discovering the planet like no time before. But going to places only the Chinese go is a great choice to make these days. One of those places is the magical island of Gulang Yu.
Since the dawn of time, we humans have been referring to the sky and the celestial bodies for guidance. The stars have been with us all along, and some parts of the world are blessed with dancing lights. Photographer Mika Suutari has dedicated her art and passion to the night.
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
Tigercub is a 3-piece noise-pop band from Brighton. They took the Lomo'Instant Automat on tour with them and have been giving away their instant shots to their fans. They talked to us about the project and shared some of their photos from the tour.
At the dawn of the night, there came bright lights. The city is one spacious dancing place, and it's time to bust those moves and shake off the daytime tension. Every night could be disco night as you blare out those flashes and cameras. The world is your dance floor.
