WHAT THE HELL IS LOMOGRAPHY?
At Lomography, we love analogue photography - you know, the kind of photography where images are captured on films rolls rather than LCD screens.
On the one hand, analogue photography is traditional; it's got an amazing history which stretches back a couple of hundred years. But film photography also opens up all kinds of real-time experimental possibilities; you can use techniques such as multiple exposures, sprocket-hole photography and cross-processing to get artistic and beautiful effects. You can't see your photos until they've been developed but that's part of the fun; analogue photography encourages you to embrace each moment and get creative!
Lomography started out as a spontaneous artistic approach to photography in the Vienna underground scene. It's now an international socio-cultural movement, one that uses analogue photography as a creative approach for capturing the world. Today we are a globally active organization dedicated to experimental and creative snapshot photography. The idea of Lomography encompasses an interactive, democratic, social, cultural, vivid, blurred and crazy way of life.
