Lomography & Death & Taxes Present “The Future is…” Competition

Here at Lomography we all know that the Future is Analogue. But of course, that’s not all the future is. The future can be anything we imagine, and many things we couldn’t imagine.

Here at Lomography we all know that the Future is Analogue. But of course, that’s not all the future is. The future can be anything we imagine, and many things we couldn’t imagine.

For this competition, The Lomographic Society along with our friends at Death & Taxes Magazine want to know what else the future is. Is it the apocalyptic wasteland of all our worst fears, or a world where hope has trumped despair? Is the planet populated by aliens, robots and time travelers? Have we found ways to end our wars, reduce our waste, and fix our environment? What advances will make life easier? What mistakes could set us back?

We want to know these answers of course. But we also just want to know what the future means to you. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 25 years? 50 years? Show us the goals you set for yourself, the dreams you will strive to achieve, and the people you hope will be there when you do. In other words, finish this sentence with a photo: The Future is….

10 lomographic prophets selected by Death & Taxes will be awarded with an incredible Diana F+ Blackjack Special Edition camera as a prize for their visionary predictions.

But that’s not all. Each of the 10 winning photos will appear in Death & Taxes Magazine as part of their November issue dedicated entirely to the question: What is the future?

But wait, there’s more! All 10 photos will be printed in large size to be put on display at the Lomography Gallery Store NYC as part of our very first ever gallery exhibition show beginning on October 13th, the launch date of the Death & Taxes issue!

Since this issue is all about the future, Death & Taxes readers will be able to use Mobot – a new technology that allows you to access more content from each page of the magazine through your mobile phone – to actually vote for a winning image! The one winner picked by the D&T readers will receive an LC-A+ Starter Kit – the legendary snapshot camera that has inspired so many in the past and present, and will surely inspire many in the future.

Winning images will need to be printed in large format for the exhibition and in high-resolution for the issue, so please have a hi-res scan available for print, or a negative of your image to print from.

By submitting to this competition, you grant Death & Taxes Magazine to reprint your photos in their magazine with only a photo credit to you, and you grant both Lomography and Death & Taxes the rights to use your photo for any and all promotions associated with this project. You also grant the Lomography Gallery Store the right to reproduce your work in large size for an in-store gallery exhibition. After the exhibition has concluded, you can pick up your print at the Lomography Gallery Store NYC, or pay all shipping costs associated with sending the print to you.

So take us on a lomographic journey into the future and show us what the future is…

    Whoa, incredible, thinking about something in the future is really incredible. Well, I myself don't really get along with sci-fi stuff.. Perhaps this one could be different. Happy shooting friends.

    Creativity means Connecting Things - A Splitzer for the LC-A 120

    I don’t like to split. A split means distance, separation, it means categorical divergence. We split hairs, we split incomes, we split up. So the first thing we have to know here is that a Splitzer – different from what you might have thought - is not at all a nasty boy splitting things up.

    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.

    Photo Stories: Kīlauea - Volcanic Eruption by russellmcbride

    Venturing into an area when there's volcanic activity is a feat that can only be either courageous or foolish. One thing's for sure, though, it's the kind of experience that not many people share and—should one escape unscathed, like russellmcbride and his friend—a highly rewarding one at that.

    Portraits of Literary Authors

    Because they have faceless conversations with readers, authors are distinguished by their eloquence and imagination. But seeing an inset portrait of a favorite writer can be a delight to a fan: The man or woman whose words seem so immortal is human after all.
