Hipstography is back!

By on December 16, 2019

At the end of last year I announced that I was going to slow down the pace, mainly because I wanted to spend more time on vegan activism. As per usual though, life likes throwing us the odd curveball… After having lived in the same building for 25 years, I decided to move to a new house so I left Brussels and moved to a quieter, and above all else, greener place. The move was not something I anticipated. It took a good chunk out of my time management and didn’t allow me to publish anything… not even a single picture. I have to admit that I have missed Hipstography badly so, with the anniversary of the site looming, I’ve decided to relaunch the adventure!


I don’t really know how the site will evolve but I figure I’d best just restart the machine. I need to catch up on lost time and will need your help: in 2019 a dozen new paks saw the light of day and I’d like to know which lenses or films deserve our attention. Have you come across any good combos over the past few months? Did you reuse any of the older elements from the Hipstamatic catalogue? Tell us all by sending us a series of your pictures!

The choice is yours: either 25 pictures with the same combo (for the "Combo" section), or a series of 25 pictures with different combos for the "Portfolio" section, make it a  best-of of your best pictures from 2019. A big thank you to Stephen Littrell for the idea! In both cases, it would be nice if you could write a little something to accompany your photos. Please stick to a maximum of 2 formats per series (1:1, 16:9…).

And, as usual, I’m also looking for a few pictures for the "Photo of the Day" section; please tag your pictures with #hipstography… Impatiently waiting for your photos!

PS: I missed you all so much!

    Great news Eric! Do you mayby have some insight in the development of the Oggl platform? The App disappeared from the appstore…

    I am so happy to hear that you found time to re-activate this site. Always loved it and whats posted with the #hipstography tag on IG. Are there other places that you check for this tag?

    Really happy to have you back. I hope you’ll do an article about Hipstamatic X. I’ve been wanting to hear your thoughts on it.
