With nature’s skyline I feel no boundaries, no restrictions. Staring at nothing but the rolling hills while listening to this album helps me let go. It eases my transition from city life, on to a greater freedom.

Best Description (selected by Yann Tiersen)

Predrag P.
The melody of the sea overflows into infinity. There was always that feeling in Yann's music but especially on this record, closeness to the water, to the sea. And this environment is where I spend a lot of my time whenever I can.

Official Rules


Established in 1992 by a group of footloose Viennese students, the Lomographic Society International is photography’s wild child. Fuelled by fiery passion and burning curiosity, we blasted off our free-spirited movement when we stumbled across the Lomo LC-A – the most popular Russian camera of the 1980s, now famed for its quirky aesthetic. We wasted no time at all and created our Ten Golden Rules, and we’ve dutifully followed them ever since. Today – with over 1 million creative members – Lomography is a license to let loose; an invitation to ignite your inspiration, and a platform to catapult your shots around the globe. Whether you’re a complete novice or a seasoned pro, we believe that you harness the power to create something incredible. From crazy color-shifting film to bespoke Art Lenses, innovative instants to classic analogue cameras we’re dedicated to designing and producing all the photographic tools you need.
