    Concert Gallery: White Ghost Shivers

    A few weeks ago I saw the White Ghost Shivers. I didn't really expect that much to be honest, since this was a concert at the middle of the week and there was not much coverage about the concert. But once they started playing I was blown away. Their music is difficult to describe, this is what they say about themselves:

A conversation over coffee catalyzed the idea of starting a small company based on their artworks.

    The London Lomography Thursday No. 2

    This year's second London Lomography Thursday event organized by the Lomography London Ambassadors Linda and Karen (with special assistant of Lomography Newcastle Ambassador Helen) stands fully in respectable honour of the princess of plastic: The Diana+ lives up to its name creating dreamy, nearly royal images, while dodging all arrogance. Just like its eponym, the Princess of Wales, she sets her allures in beauty and splendour. Such extraordinary grandeur calls for the finest company!

    Kai Yamada is having fun with plastic. Cameras, that is. "The reason I like shooting with plastic cameras is for the simplicity. Working with the Diana, or Holga or whatever, strips down photography to the essentials. You, the subject, a simple lens to refract the image onto a medium. It doesn’t get any plainer than that!"

    Of Seagulls & Swollen Hearts : Q&A with Liad Cohen

    Multiple-exposure images are easy to do, but quite difficult to pull off. Among the few who can master this trick effectively is Liad Cohen, LSI’s US Online Coordinator, and more importantly, a passionate Lomographer based in New York City. Besides taking long walks with his camera, he likes to write, play the guitar, and read (??Good Omens??, ??The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle??, ??Rule of the Bone??). He enjoys good movies (??Into the Wild??, ??Wristcutters??, ??Rocket Science??, ??Brotherhood of the Wolf??) and good music as well – his latest picks are ??In Rainbows by Radiohead??, and ??Mercy … by Ours??. A man of substance, talent, and good taste – that’s Liad Cohen for you!
