Lomography x Concrete Hermit Rumble

10

Concrete Hermit is a brilliant London based Arts company, who work together with a whole host of creative talent to create amazing works of Art across a range of formats. We've teamed up with them to give you the chance to win a limited edition artwork!

Since starting out online in 2004 Concrete Hermit has been championing various creative endeavors across many fields. Chris Knight, the companys founder has worked together with a host of creative talent to publish books, design clothing and produce prints and artwork. In 2007 Concrete Hermit opened a studio/ shop/ exhibition space in East London that has hosted an exciting roster of exhibitions and projects as well as providing an outlet to represent the work of both established and emerging artists and designers. Chris told us “We’re always keen to try and work with people who really love what they do, people who understand where they are coming from and who can approach any project, whatever it is with passion and integrity”

So, if you didn’t know about these guys already, you should! With such a huge amount of amazing creative talent within the Lomography community, we felt they were a perfect match for a photo rumble. Chris will pick the winning shots, so please submit your photos inspired by the theme of concrete – it could be an urban cityscape, a skate park, a building site, find the beauty in the urban jungle, and show us what you saw!

    Question: Is this competition for colored photographs only? The rules say "- Please submit a colorful ANALOGUE photograph featuring concrete!", and he sample photo is B&W. Can we submit both types? Thanks! :)

    I have the same question as @tallgrrlrocks. B&W or does it have to be color?

In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas.

    True Romance? The Lomography Cine200 Tungsten Film 35mm

    Limited edition. Only 4,000 rolls available. What a way to tantalize the Lomographic community! But could a film billed as bringing back the "romantic experience of cinematic art" really live up to such a claim? Armed with just one roll of Lomography Cine200 Tungsten film, this skeptic had put it to the test.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
