Some random street photos from all of Mumbai (Bombay). Some streets are quiet while others are chaotic.
Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) is many things. It’s the economic capital of India as well as its richest city. It is also the most populated city of India and the second most populated urban area in the world. It’s also home to one of the most prolific film industries in the world (Bollywood!). Also this city has been home to me for 19 years of my life!
I think what everyone can agree on is that Mumbai is a city of contrasts. Rich and poor. Penthouses and roadside shanties. Lamborghinis and Bullock Carts (though Bullock carts are very rare now!) you will find it all in this city. When I loaded up my ActionSampler with its first film I was determined to capture the streets of this city in all it’s liveliness.
Here are some photos I took with the first film:
Mumbai has been a target for terrorists in recent years and the government is trying to take safety measures, though it can be difficult because the city is large and over populated.
These are some of the street photos I took with the ActionSampler. Sorry for the random post, it’s just that these are places from all over the city! I have a lot more photos of different locations in Mumbai and I plan to put them up soon.
First of all, I really appreciate being able to join the TEN AND ONE Residency Week in Vienna along with super cool Lomographers! We could never have any forgettable memories. The members are 11 people from 10 countries. I thought it'd be difficult to communicate with each other because of our different cultures, languages, personalities, etc. But we didn't have any worries. We respected each other, above all we are Lomographers!
A while back I had the unique chance to hang a little with Muhammad Yunus in Uganda. The professor from Bangladesh is no other than a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate for the implementation for micro credits and a shining icon of social business. Now he and his supporters are trying to make the world a better place, in real.
It's just like any other night for New York-based photographer Daniel Schaefer. In the city streets of New York, he and his model who goes by Dove Mother grab some dumplings for dinner, with the side salad of night photography using the handy Lomo'Instant Square.
Where’s the fun in analogue when you can only take one photo with a single exposure? Bring back the photobooth era with some Warholian four-frame portraiture! Lomography’s ActionSampler is about to make you an instant pop art master in no time.
Most of us organize our photo albums according to events or places. Some prefer to classify their photographs according to film or technique, while others compile their best shots. Have a look at January's most noteworthy albums and learn how to tell your stories through visual organization.
Deeply inspired by her own relationship with others, photographer Jana Ludwig's surreal, Kafka-esque images are how memories of old, new, special and mundane look like, but all in all, they are all fleeting. And so, Jana captures them with her camera.
It's been over a month since I left Vienna after spending a fantastic week with all the 2016 TEN AND ONE winners. Looking back at the photos I captured brings a smile to my face as I remember the fun memories of the experience I had with my fellow Lomographers.
Distortion Unplugged hosted a Charity Event in Brooklyn to celebrate International Women's Day! The event included an exhibition of photos of the most famous women in music taken by women photographers. All donations from the event went to My Sister's Place in New York.
The December holidays are the best times to spend a week out somewhere away from the buzz and noise of daily life. Here we line up some unique places all over the world for a unique and memorable winter 2017.
