The Monument to the Great Fire of London. Lots of steps, but worth the trek! Will set you back 3 squid though
Built by Sir Christopher Wren in 1677 to commemorate the Great Fire of London and to celebrate the rebuilding of the city, the Monument is one of London’s lesser-known attractions. However, it’s a magnificent structure with one of the city’s most glorious panoramic views – if, that is, you fancy climbing it’s 311-step spiral staircase. Yes, 311 fucking steps. Trust me, don’t go up if you’re in anyway tired or hungover but do if you want a great view having earned it. That and it’s cheaper than a one-day gym membership in the Square Mile! Did I also mentioned that you get a certificate too? I dare you to frame it…
Don't let the cold, wintry weather stop you from photographing outdoors! But before stepping out, take note of these simple yet helpful tips for protecting your precious gear. Don't forget to dress warmly!
They started the year not with a thundering bang but with the soft click of shutter buttons fired in rapid succession. Our heartfelt thanks to these lomographers for providing us with stunning images to admire all month long!
London became a cultural capital in the 60s, wielding influence around the world. Though the golden days of mod were short-lived, Lomography remembers the Big Smoke's contributions to the arts and generations that followed.
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.
The most challenging thing for the creative mind is to materialize ideas. But Isidro Blasco has mastered the art of turning an ambitious concept to a sight worth beholding in "Planets," a series of city sculptures made out of photographs.

This article is dedicated to Bruce Davidson, one of the most important American documentary photographers and a leading figure of the Magnum agency. Recalling his photos of the Worcester Fire Department in 1999, I'll show you my coverage of Como Fire Department's public demonstration, an annual event commemorating St. Barbara.
An old-school movie theatre and a smartphone walk into a bar... It may sound like the start of a cheesy joke your crazy uncle tells you over and over again, but to Luckies of London, it sounded like a chance to merge their love of analogue with modern technology! We sat down with Xavier Unwin, the Creative Director at Luckies of London, to talk about their fantastic Smartphone Projector 2.0.
Andrej Russkovskij loves to shoot analogue. Visit his website and you will instantly see a range of beautiful soft tones and saturated colours that can only be achieved with film. We lent him the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens to test out around the streets of London.
The instant photography market is raving! All you Lomo'Instant handlers and owners out there will soon be able to shoot in classic instant square prints as Fujifilm is set to produce the iconic format.
2015 was a super exciting year for the world of creative photography. We introduced new products, paid homage to analogue photography and collaborated with like-minded folks. If you missed any of the festivities, don't worry - we promise that there will be more fantastic things to come next year! In the meantime, here's a look back into all the happy Lomography memories!
