Lomogon lens launched on Kickstarter
Lomography has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the manufacture of their new art lens the Lomogon. It was designed to recreate some of the classic Lomography aesthetic you get from the Lomo LC-A, but now for DLSRs, Mirrorless cameras, and good old film SLRs.

Lomo LC-A 120 medium format camera hands on review
When Lomography released the Lomo LC-A 120 last year I got really excited. It’s a compact medium format camera with a modified glass lomo LC-A lens with automatic exposure which is a huge step up from the light leaky plastic Holgas and Dianas I’d previously used. I’ve never really been a fan of plastic 120 roll film cameras as I’ve never seen the point of shooting expensive film on a camera with no light meter, a plastic lens, and something that you only use on a sunny day.

Lomography Petzval DSLR Lens hands on review
The Lomography Petzval lens is a relatively new lens inspired by the past but designed to work with modern Nikon and Canon Digital SLRs. It’s totally manual and the images it produces have a dream like quality to them which is down to the super shallow depth of field and circular bokeh (blurring). Anything in the centre of frame will be highlighted by the circular bokeh and blurring patten. The lens is the equivalent of an 85mm on a full frame camera (like any Canon 5D) and its maximum aperture is f/2.2.
The roots of this new lens lies in the original Petzval lens designed by Joseph Petzval in 1840, and although Lomography’s Petzval is technically a little different from the original, they’ve definitely nailed the 1840’s aesthetic. In August 2013 Lomography ran a successful Kickstater campaign to fund the manufacturing of a new version of the Petzval, they smashed their $100,000 funding goal 13 times over. After the Kickstarter backers receive their lenses Lomography are selling them to anyone who wants one.

Analogue Tribes Fragmented Portraits Documentary
Photographer Anton and founder of Lots of Little Ideas has been working on a series films titled ‘Analogue Tribes’ about photographers that still use film in a predominately digital age. Today he released the First Analogue Tribes film featuring me talking about my montage portraits. Last year we met up in East London and he documented me as I shot montage portraits of some hip East London cats. After a little wonder we went to the basement of the East London Lomography store where we had a little chat about my use of film.

Interviewed by the BBC about 20 years of Lomography
I have been interviewed by the BBC’s online magazine for an article that coincides with the 20th anniversary of Lomography. It’s quite nice to see that another Brighton photographer, Toby Mason, has also been interviewed for the piece; Brighton represent! The article was written by Stephen Dowling, the same journalist that interviewed me on the subject of Instagram in April this year. You can read the BBC’s Lomography article here and I thought it would be nice to post my responses to Stephen’s questions in full in case you’re curious to read more.
