London Primary School Project by Adam Scott

"I was recently asked to do a workshop at a primary school in central London. A class of 30 kids from ages 7 to 8 needed help on a project about the local community and environment. Lomography cameras were needed to give the project an edge.

Armed with some Fisheyes, Supersamplers, a modified Pop 9 and some Holga 35mm i went to the oldest part of London to show kids how to use film, a medium none of them had really heard of (am i that old already?).

The kids learnt fast, shot faster and really got to grips with double exposures, shooting low, high and even stopping tourists to take photos of them."

    As if they have always used lomo cameras!

    Wonderful pictures, very inspiring and very creative! The kids obviously had a lot of fun and it's great that you showed them that photography is MORE than digital handy pictures!
