LOMO LIFE - THE FUTURE IS ANALOGUE!
384 pages, over 2900 pictures, 138 cameras, 2 books; tons of creativity! In the run up to our 20th Anniversary, we partnered with publishing house Thames & Hudson to create a stunning two-volume slipcase that catalogues the past two decades of Lomography. Packed with incredible, exclusive photographs dug from the Lomographic archives, these two hardback books retrace the most significant moments in the making of Lomography and features forewords from both cult-author Neil Gaiman and award-winning Thai filmmaker Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Printed on 2 different high quality paper stocks and presented in a slick cardboard sleeve, this beautifully designed collector’s piece is a fitting tribute to two decades of Lomo Life.
