For our trip to Arkhangelsk in the deep of winter, my girlfriend and I made sure that we dressed warmly to keep ourselves from freezing to death.
So what can I best recall from our trip to Arkhangelsk? The date of its foundation (in 1594!), its population (now about 350 000 people)? That it is a major seaport and it’s the center of timber and fishing industries in Russia? Although we didn’t really get to go to the museums and theaters that time for such information. Hehe…
For us Arkhangelsk brings back memories of the frozen Northern Dvina River, huge icebreakers which can be found near the Sea River Station, and snow covered streets and monuments. Although it’s not just all snow there, we also saw a large number of wooden houses which were built by prisoners in the middle of the last century, and thankfully, warm window cafés where we usually went to warm up our frozen fingers.
Some people might think that we didn’t really see anything interesting there and it was just a waste of time but to be honest, we really want to go there again and explore more…although during a much warmer season! :)
One of the reasons why we love winter so much is because we finally get to pull out that Game of Thrones saying, "Winter is here." The thought of spending Christmas time with your loved ones and watching the snow falling will warm your heart in a second.
They say nature is a place where we often go to find ourselves. Sometimes a short walk amidst nature can have such an influence on our mind and soul. Nature provides us a getaway from the outer world and helps us to maintain that perfect bond between people and nature.

From the 19th century to today, the concept of 'family' has changed over time -- from families born into ones, to the ones we have chosen for ourselves. Photographers then and now have found the basic unit of society an interesting, continuous study.
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...and before our smartphones, say "07734" to the pager.
Her passion for photography stemmed from a deep bond with her father who taught her the ins and outs of operating a film camera. Now, she writes poetry not only with words but also with light. Get to know our featured community newcomer Sabrina (@rebeccared) in this brief interview.

The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
Pripyat is a modern day Atlantis. The inhabitants of the Soviet town had to run from the nuclear disaster and therefore it has been preserved more or less in the state of 1986. I made my way up to the North of Ukraine thirty years after the catastrophe. This is the second part of this adventure.
Luca's passion for photography brought her from Austria to NYC, made her Fashion & Fine Art Wedding Photographer, Art Director and founder of a print magazine. Her story reads like a modern fairy tale. Though, she likes to tell different stories with her photographs and we can't stop listening. Meet our new TEN AND ONE AWARDS judge!
