I was driving home with the tram from picking up my last film and…
Just as I was getting all the missing stuff for our upcoming festival weekend, there she was, the Diana F+, on the big sales promotion of Strauss Innovation. The page was not intentionally about her, but all the same she caught my attention and upstaged the advertised clothes.
Here she is, also on their online shop:
The text says “Bitte lächeln!” which translates to “Say cheese!”
Strauss Innovation is a big retail company in Denmark. Founded in 1902 by Mary and Henry Strauss, it has been around for over 100 years. They initially peddled haberdashery, linen and woolen goods before becoming a full-blown lifestyle outlet.
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.
Among the many public events of last year's winter in my hometown Como (that I documented with my albums and with my articles), I think that the most important was the opening ceremony of the jubilee proclaimed by Pope Francis. I photographed everything with my beloved Canon AV-1. Take a look!

Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
When I went to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone I was deeply impressed by Pripyat. The city was home to most of the workers of the nuclear power plant and evacuated two days after the disaster. Now it's a larger than life museum about the Soviet Union. It is the last city of the CCCP.
Last Month Lomography UK hosted three Lomo’instant Wide workshops at the Wellcome Collection for 14-19 year olds. We covered the Close-up lens, remote controlled lens cap and the multiple exposure button. Take a look at some of the amazing shots from the day.
This summer, Morgane from the Lomography French team spent a few days in Brittany. Among the cameras she brought with her was the Lomo'Instant Wide. Here, Morgane drives you to discover the silent beauty of the Brittany coast, its wild landscape and its ghostly boats stranded during the low tide.
