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…

    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.

    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.

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.
