    Hong Kong Artist 'Sellwords' La Sardina DIY Black Camera

    When Sellwords started, it arose from a romantic sentiment. On the 1st of January 2013, Sellwords started to regularly upload their words to social networks and to send to readers. They would run down the street, chasing people to present them with their words as a gift, only explaining briefly, so as to allow the individual to discover the meaning for themselves. It is hoped that this rather frank and random behaviour will catalyze peoples romantic spirits to come out and play! Lomography couldn't resist a collaboration with Sellwords to see how they would integrate their romantic words onto one of our La Sardina DIY Black cameras!
