I always like to watch the city from inside my ride. A few years back, I was surprised to see paintings and graffiti in every corner of every neighborhood.
One of the biggest urban changes that happened all over the world, particularly in Rio de Janeiro, was the rise of artists bent on taking to the streets for self-expression.
There is something about this new tradition, how it changes as the days pass, as people add to the drawings or paintings. It’s such a nice thing to pass on to other generations, who can also add to the never-finished works of art.
The ephemeral nature of these works, and the fact that many of them have no visible signature, make them more interesting. They are gifts to the city, art that does not require status to be displayed and appreciated. Artists who wish for their designs to change, evolve, degenerate a bit, perhaps mingle with the local fauna and flora, will find this avenue appealing.
I’ve been going out with my Pentax to capture the beautiful walls while they’re still there.
I have been constantly returning to the Sahara, and my last visit was the fifth in a row. Every visit was full of excitement and surprises. I feel like this place has become my second home. This year, I decided to travel there for a fortnight.
I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

We've been constantly impressed by Lomo community member Duffman's ability to see a moment. He tested the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens on the streets of New York City and brought back some breathtaking results. Check out his first impressions of the lens here!
I traveled to Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in May 2015 with my twin sister. Our birthday was on the 31st, and for the last few years we've had a silent pact to try to spend our birthdays traveling as much as we could (and as long as we’re single!).
A year and a few months since it was introduced, the Lomo LC-A 120 continues its exciting journey around the world—from busy streets to scenic far-flung places and everywhere else in between. Here are just some of the many places and faces encountered by this trusty, compact medium format camera (and their adventurous owners, of course!) in recent months, in photographs.

Last year, my wife and I visited the Parque Natural de Sintra-Cascais close to Lisbon. It was a gorgeous hike from some beautiful ruins to the most western point of the European mainland, Cabo da Roca.
Last summer we were lucky to visit 4 cities in 3 different countries, just within a few days. This was reason enough to give my very first LomoChrome Turquoise a try. Afterwards I was astonished by the absolutely unexpected colors of the shots.
Mere days before my two week adventure I spontaneously inherited Lomography’s original gem of immediate satisfaction. Armed with the most creative take on instant photography yet, I was able to see Salamanca, Oviedo, Santander, and Madrid through a rare lens.
An indie band from Singapore, Take Two, released a music video for their song 'In Your Arms' earlier this year. The video was shot and produced by SNAP productions with the Pixelstick to create stunning light-painting effects. Read on to know more about the production of the video and what the people at SNAP Productions think about the Pixelstick!
One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.
