Conquering the World, One Doubles Project at a Time

4

How does one travel the world with limited resources and limited vacation leaves from work? For us lomographers, this would not be a hindrance. Conquering the world is within reach.

Von: boobert

It just hit me recently, after some failed attempts going on an out-of-the-country trip, that the next best thing to see or visit other countries is through some doubles project. I have done a couple of doubles project with my fellow lomographers here in Manila and those were very exciting. What could be more exciting and fun than doubles with lomographers from other parts of the world?

My first doubles try outside Manila is with stonerfairy from Singapore. I love the results from that doubles, so I’m thinking, I would like to start this “conquer the world project” with lomographers from Singapore. Recently, I have done doubles with Filipino lomographer friends based in Singapore, b0rn2b1ush and ponzi as a start. The results were amazing.

After Singapore, I’m planning to do a couple more film swaps with lomographers from the Southeast Asia region, then followed by the rest of the Asian regions. As of this writing, in transit are rolls from Malaysia c/o lomographer adzfar and his group. After my Asian tour, I would like to plan my next doubles project/film swaps from lomographers in North and South America. After that, countries in Europe. I just hope I can accomplish all this within the year.

For someone who has limited resources, traveling the world would be next to impossible. But, thank goodness for film swaps, I would be able to see the world and at the same time not hurt my pocket. Films and shipping costs are just way cheaper than plane tickets and hotel reservations. Though it may not be as exciting to be there in actual, it’s still exciting nevertheless. And more colorful! So, let us all go out and conquer the world!
