From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what’s exciting, unique, and important in the art world.

In the modern art world, there are few museums on the planet as esteemed and revered for their ability to recognize important artistic movements as the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what’s exciting, unique, and important in the art world. So it was only a matter of time before Lomography had its moment in the MoMA spotlight!

Beginning mid-January and continuing through the beginning of February, three separate locations of MoMA Design Stores in NYC will feature impressive LomoWall installations with over 16,000 Lomographs. The images used to build the LomoWalls were assembled from two online photo rumbles that resulted in submissions from 28 countries around the world. While checking out these massive and breathtaking installations be sure to check out the latest array of Lomographic products available at the MoMA Design Stores, including the special edition MoMA DianaF+.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Lake Toba

    Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."

    From Experimental to Ordinary: LomoAmigo Martin Dietrich Tests the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
