Special Rumble: New York Around the World

21

New York is more than just a city. It’s a feeling. When it gets its greasy hooks into you, it never lets go. Many New Yorkers can never leave, and the ones who do always take a part of the city with them. Because of this, New York is more than just a US city. It is a city for the world.

New York is more than just a city. It’s a feeling. When it gets its greasy hooks into you, it never lets go. Many New Yorkers can never leave, and the ones who do always take a part of the city with them. Because of this, New York is more than just a US city. It is a city for the world.

That’s why as part of the upcoming New York City MOMA Lomowall instillations, we’d like to see a part of New York in your world.

There is the iconic New York – the Statue of Liberty souvenir at the Pyramids, the yellow taxicab lumbering down some European street, or the Yankees’ cap on the head of a child in Tokyo.

But there is also the New York inspiration that you see in the architecture, street art, faces, signs, bridges, and in the multi-ethnic spirit of melting-pot cultures around the world.

Here’s what we’re looking for again:

Architecture, Street Art, Fashion, Bridges, Bars, Store fronts, Holiday lights and store windows, Faces, Police and Firemen, Churches, temples, & mosques…, Taxis, buses, and other traffic jammers, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, Harlem, Coney Island, Brighton Beach, and every corner of this sprawling city! Freaks, geeks and clowns, Alligators in the subways, elephants coming through the midtown tunnel, black squirrels and other animals,… And everything else that makes New York NEW YORK!

And please do not forget to tag all the pix extensively so we can make things match at the LomoWalls.

We need your photos to be at least 1200×1800 pixels for 35mm shots, or 1500×1500 for square format. One thing you count on from New Yorkers is that they always keep it real. So please do the same and dump your Photoshop tricks in the East River, Capish?

  • Deadline for submissions is Wednesday December 3rd 2008, so don’t dilly-dally!
  • For your participation 5 piggy points will come your way if we include at least one picture taken by you. Winners are set to be announced in the middle of December!
  • No upload limit

Start the submissions now, and get your work shown at a world-renowned Museum of Modern Art location!

Good luck!

    you can tag the photos when they appear on your beta lomohome... this way the photos can be sorted easier for the wall... it really helps, so please do your best!

    thanks!

    @ paper_doll: you can tag 'em in your lab after uploading here... the pics can be found in your unsorted folder...

    My New York City Bike Ride Through Purple Eyes

    What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.

    LomoLocations: Reno, Nevada

    In prime areas of New York and San Francisco, the phrase ‘rush hour’ is always on the menu. Drive up to Reno, and the same expression fizzles. Many roads are framed by mountains and shrubbery, a picture of calm in the city. But the night makes up for the day’s stilly mood. Casinos flaunt LED signs and marquees, a treat for urban photographers.

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.

    Petzval Lenses: The Craft of Portraiture

    The Petzval 85 and 58 Lenses remain favorites among Lomographers because of the quality bokeh, perfect for making dreamy portraits, à la classic paintings. But portraiture is more than just showing off a pretty face in a classic, vertical orientation: It's a marriage of elements. Think of it in terms of attitude and personality.
