Miami better get ready because Lomography is coming to town. We're sending one of our crew to do some scouting and projects in Miami for a few days. So we figured why not catch up with our Miami branch of the Lomographamily. Let's play!
Hello Lomographamily en Miami! We wanted to let you know, we’re sending a Lomography secret agent to hang out with you. That’s right, the first week of April brings the heat of spring and the saturation of color. Lomography is sending a representative to Miami to make friends and snap some shutters. We searched for a colorful spot to meetup, and there was no shortage of areas. We decided that a relaxed stroll through the Wynwood Arts District would suit everyone just fine.
So, we’ll meet at 5:30 PM in front of Panther Coffee on the corner of NW 2nd Ave. and NW24th St. Once we’ve gathered, exchanged names, and earned cool points with each other, we’ll head out for the Wynwood Walls. We’ve seen a glimps of this space and can’t wait to take it all in with a Sprocket Rocket or maybe a Spinner 360.
After the Wynwood Walls, we’ll walk around the Arts District and discover what new urban art has popped up. Our man Cameron will have some loaner Lomography cameras and film, so you can test out a few of our newer beauties. We can’t wait to meet you, geek out, and share ideas. You Miami folks are about to get a cattle prode-sized jolt to your inspirado. Let’s do this!
Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!
When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
