“Dwarf Land” is one of my favorite places in Constanta as it reminds me of my childhood. It is the biggest kids’ playground in town and is part of Tăbăcărie Park. It has a very lively atmosphere and is the perfect place to take some fun photos.
“Dwarf Land” Tăbăcărie is the biggest kids’ park in Constanta so whether it’s summer or winter you will always find children playing around. It doesn’t matter if you like children or not because this is the perfect place to take fun and lively photos! Each time I come here, I remember how much fun I had as a kid: running around in the park with not a care in the world and playing all sorts of fun games with other kids. Back then “Dwarf Land” didn’t exist, but the child-like atmosphere is still the same.
Even though I can’t use all the fun stuff around like the swings, the slides and all the other rides because there is a very strict age limit, I like to come here once in a while and just lay on the grass or sit on a bench, enjoy the view and take photos.
The location itself is very beautiful and inspiring: it has three small hills, lots of flowers and trees that add extra color to the park and of course, some small dwarf figurines. Also, “Dwarf Land” is part of Tăbăcărie Park and is very near to Tăbăcărie Lake, so when you get tired of all the giggling and running around you can always take a quiet stroll on the Tăbăcărie Lake shore or enjoy a nice book on a bench.

When one only knows and experiences one part of the world, he creates an echo chamber for himself. We've heard about the urban lifestyle and modern living in America and Europe, but how about in other places? Cape Town-based photographer Duran Levinson seeks them out in Asia and Africa.
Mitchell Wojcik is based in Brooklyn, New York. He likes "Ghostbusters, and to make whatever comes to mind and document my life as I go." He used to put a lot of thought into things, but now prefers to have fun and not think about it at all. Hmm, sounds like a perfect match for the Lomo'Instant Automat Glass!
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.

In the olden times, traveling was a rather intimate hobby. How so? To share one's journey to the unknown would require effort. Effort, in the sense you'd have to send them a keepsake with notes on the back. So why not relive the tradition of sending postcards with the Lomo'Instant Square?
Go retro-futuristic with these photographs by Maria Svarbova that show off extremely controlled scenes and figures in mid-movement, no frill or joy, just austere compositions and the remarkable displays of discipline.
The '90s was a memorable, incredible decade. Apart from the founding of Lomography and the community, there were other fads and pop culture icons that made noise, forever etching in the minds of many. Remember those Calvin Klein waistbands? We remember them, too.
Collage has been around since the invention of paper in China, and it has evolved throughout history. The earliest and most familiar point is when Surrealists and Dadaists began adapting the technique in photography. Here, we have today's trends on contemporary collage.
Dutch Vice photo editor Raymond van Mil is no stranger to the nightlife. In fact, that's where you can find him most of the time, deep into the fleeting moment but always ready to capture the next big scene.
Russia is the country that mastered resurrection from fallen empires, wars, and doomed anarchy. Like the Firebird, it rises from the ashes. But there is little known to the 21st-century tale of Russia, so here's photographer Frank Herfort to share his images and stories.
