The SS Great Britain is one of Bristol’s most popular tourist attractions.
It was built in 1843 and was the largest boat of that time. Initially built as a steam ship, the sails were added later on in it’s life. It has had a chequered history – it was used for crossing the Atlantic; shipping immigrants to Australia; and then used as a warehouse in the Falkland Islands. Whilst in the Falklands, it was also sunk! In 1970, it returned to Bristol where it has been restored to near-original, albeit museum-piece condition.
Visiting is a treat for any lomographer. You can get a ticket which allows you to visit as many times as you want in a year – ideal for going back with different cameras/film combos! There are all sorts of brightly-coloured flags, exhibitions, sails, naval artifacts, and other things to see. Well worth the trip if you’re in the area!
Perhaps one of the most underestimated touristic islands is the Spanish archipelago of the Canary. Let's all take a visual tour of the island of Lanzarote, called "Land of the Ochre", through the words and images of wanderer and photographer Anna Garcia herself.
One of the biggest attractions in the "Be An Explorer" campaign is the 80-meter long LomoWall outdoors! It is designed and constructed by the team from Lomography’s headquarters. Each photo was installed one by one. Watch the behind the scenes of this massive LomoWall!

The modern social landscape of Great Britain is delicate. Despite its efforts for progress, many of its executive decisions overlook many people -- the marginalized working class. Little did photographer CJ Clarke know, he was already documenting the presage of the infamous move that shook Europe.

If Paris or any other Western city is the most traveled place as a tourist destination today, the photographers and travellers of the19th century were dreaming and begging to be taken to Cairo,, Egypt. This was the earliest record of travel photography.
Are you wondering what the best photograph on a specific day of 2016 was? Tune in on this special recap where we'll track the daily image that captured the community's attention last year. For May, lomographers mostly played with repeating patterns, minimalist composition, and rough rendering.
