Last year, architecture student Charles Irby let us publish his dreamy and ghostlike lomography pictures of  Père Lachaise cemetery. Here are some great black and white photographs that Charles took while in a class with photographer Mark Lyon. There’s something about using the lomo viewfinder–objects become hyper-real and you become much more aware of the need to frame a scene, something that is a bit lost in digital photography in my opinion. Here, Charles allows the oft-depicted Parisian architecture to find its place in the scene–whether allowing it to emerge  from the embankments of the river Seine or giving it a secondary role, as in the photographs of Saint-Sulpice (third and fourth photographs below). Can you guess where the other pictures were taken?
