‘Instead of snapshots drenched in vibrant, summery colors, the [Lomo] community’s eyes were mostly drawn towards moody black and white photographs,’ states the Lomography website.

‘Dramatic silhouettes and reflections are recurring elements in almost every shot. Marvel at this stunning showcase of portraits and landscapes that make up our most popular photos for July.’

The Lomography team compiled their favourite images based on the number of ‘likes’ and comments they received.

The photos can have been captured on any make of film, not just on Lomo emulsion.

A spokesperson today told AP that Lomo encourages Lomographers to ‘experiment with all kinds and brands of film – the more the merrier’.
