These days, that would mean robots. But in the good old days of making by hand, artist Angryblue shows us what.
Angryblue is Justin Kamerer, who may be angry and blue but definitely talented. He has been into printmaking for a few years now, with an overwhelming archive at his official website, Angryblue.com.
Based on his choice of subjects as well as colors, anyone could easily describe his style as dark. This is why a lot of his watchers were surprised by his latest print called “Weapons of Mass Creation.”
On the poster are drawings of old-fashioned pens, brushes, rulers, cutters, and other traditional implements. They are neatly arranged inside an outline of a missile, hence the clever pun.
We can only imagine what the past was like. Experiment-ready film photographers often recreate it in rose-colored filters and tints. On the other hand, some artists reimagine old photos by manually coloring them.
Lomographer Carina, or landei in the community, regards the Sprocket Rocket as a "versatile plastic camera." For her, it doesn't only take great travel snapshots but makes an interesting conversation starter as well. In this interview, Carina expounds more on what makes the Sprocket Rocket her go-to camera.
Influenced by the work of Caravaggio, Berlin-based photographer Klara Johanna Michel hand-painted photographs are reminiscent of Renaissance art. The images are highly stylized and the subjects are posed to mimic the appearance of religious beings. Who would have thought that such mystery and old world charm could similarly be achieved with the help of an instant camera?
Inspired by the seventies, this young artist makes it seem that such an epoch lives forever in her photographs, perfectly maintaining the spirit of the time which was characterized by a multitude of colours, contrasts and famous disco moves.
It's no secret that the community is a treasure trove of film photography tips and techniques. And this artistic atmosphere is what exactly piqued Kellie Leming's interest. In this interview, our newcomer of the week from Nashville, Tennesse opens up about how the music community in her hometown inspires her to be positive and creative and what shooting on film means to her.
What can be done with old printed photographs which no longer serve fascination in the digital age? Polish artist Weronika Gęsicka re-imagines these vintage prints in to new images and frames of passed time and emphasizes the importance of print in the matter of memory.
What makes an engaging image? What makes a photograph seem more like a memory than just an image? How is it able to make you feel as if you were right there, in that moment, experiencing the scene first hand?
The Brazilian Artist Misha Assis is an expert when it comes to the Petzval 85 Art Lens. A visit to his LomoHome will show what we mean. Here he tells us a little about himself and about his love for the Petzval 85 Art Lens.
We love a striking photo as much as the next person, but a unique point of view makes us head straight to a feature. Who should the world know more about? Who has rocked our perception of beauty, sexuality and creativity? These questions populate our notepads, and our list of photographers is quite long. For International Women's Day 2016, we whittle the directory down to our current favorites, photographers who resist labels (even the ones we give them) and dare the world to see what they see.
Here’s what happens before we interview a photographer. We gush about the work though we have yet to find out the cameras and processes behind the brilliant composition or the light architecture. And even when they haven’t used a Lomo camera, we feature them anyway. But every once in a while comes a pro who uses one of our premium lenses at work and our fun cameras off-duty. This makes us mighty glad, more so when their images are good and worth sharing. We count cinematographer Michal Dabal's work among them.
Travelling like the Chinese is a tough call to make theses days, as they are discovering the planet like no time before. But going to places only the Chinese go is a great choice to make these days. One of those places is the magical island of Gulang Yu.
