Lomography is in the process of reinventing the Polaroid picture, with the Lomo’Instant. This camera is considered to be the world’s most creative instant camera. It not only captures moments, but also our desire for immediacy and the reemerging love for analogue (non-digital) photography. The uniqueness of the camera lies in its advanced lens system, variety of filters, ability to shoot both automatic or manual, and much more.  The camera includes three lens options - a built in wide angle, an attachable fisheye and portrait lens.

 What truly makes this product special is that unlike the hundreds of photos taken on your smartphone, this camera instantly prints a tangible memory. Twenty-eight days remain on their Kickstarter fundraiser, however the company has already crushed its goal and is set to start producing the Lomo’instant November of this year.

Just when we thought couples couldn’t get any closer, Japanese condom brand, Condomania, shows us they can. The advertisements aptly titled, “Flesh Love,” feature images captured by Japanese photographer, Hal, who photographed over 100 couples inside plastic bags, with the air vacuumed out. He constructed the set with vacuum-sealed backs in his very own kitchen. Hal moves quickly, as he only has 10 seconds to catch the photo before the couple begins to lose their breath.

To celebrate the 125th anniversary of the No. 1 camera, Kodak has released a selection of images taken with the iconic camera. Touting the slogan ”You Press the Button, We Do the Rest”, the Kodak No. 1 camera came preloaded with 100 exposures and required the user to return the entire camera for film processing. The resulting images were circular due in part to the poor photo quality in the corners of the rectangular negatives.

FILMography is an ongoing photo project by New York City journalist, Christopher Moloney. He finds very specific locations where popular movie scenes were filmed, and holds a printed photo from the movie in front of the real location. He chronicles these experiences on his Tumblr.  We’d assume this takes a serious film buff and some hardcore research to find the actual locations of where these movies were filmed. Moloney also sells a limited number of signed prints through his site.

'Harlem, U.S.A.' is a collection of black-and-white photographs of Harlem residents taken in the late 1970s by photographer Dawoud Bey. As a young New Yorker, Bey got inspired after seeing the 'Harlem on My Mind' exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In 1979, he made his debut with a solo show at the Studio Museum in Harlem. Over 40 years later, 'Harlem U.S.A.' is being exhibited in it's entirety at the Art Institute of Chicago along with other works by photography trailblazers, including James Van Der Zee, Irving Penn and Roy Carava. 

The exhibition will be available for viewing until September 9, 2012.
