This is the book that you simply can't shelve. It has lots and lots of images and LomoWalls and also an extensive history about Lomo and cameras in general. Want inspiration? You got it.
What makes film photography so much more fun than digital? I believe that since every frame costs a little, it requires you to think. You’ll want to get more knowledge to take better and more fun pictures. You train your eyes to see the pictures before they are taken. Another thing is the result, the negatives or the printouts. It’s something you can hold in your hand and look at and think “Hey I made this”. It’s real. Combine the words “real” and “knowledge” and you have a book. A big book. Like this one.
It contains 664 pages. More than half of these are high quality prints. Both full page pictures and LomoWalls. It’s a blast to just browse these and the selection is in true lomostyle. It puts the finger of something that is often overlooked in the digital age, the printout. Why buy generic paintings and posters when you can create your own art and hang them on your walls? Most of these images are from this website, but they are from 2008 and earlier. Think of it as a collection of more than 3000 great pictures all in one book. It is either easy entertainment or eye training for great snapshot photography.
The book is more than prints. A big part of it consists of history. You can read about the detailed information about Lomography and it’s roots in Russia. Some parts of this already exists in the smaller Lomo LC-A book that you get when you buy the camera, but not all of it. It’s very interesting to read this and it strenghthens the feel about the LC-A as something that is not just another product. Other classic compact cameras are also covered. From the first Kodak No.1 to Leica and Cosina CX-2, the model that LC-A was built after.
Lastly, there is information about the workings of the LC-A and film in general. Pretty basic stuff but great for beginners and people new to film.
What it is: A statement of analogue excellence. Interesting read or great eyecandy. Something for people, be it yourself or guests at your home, to easily browse or read parts of. It’s a book that draws attention.
What it isn’t: A manual on how to take pictures. It’s also not a bigger version of the LC-A book.

Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria. It has been mentioned in a myriad of pop culture references in books, music, and film, and is also the home of the Lomography headquarters. The history of Vienna stretches back to a far 500 BC, which is why it’s no surprise that the city is steeped in rich, unique, and fascinating culture and history that has inspired artists of all generations.
Aside from his pictures, there is more to admire about Stephen Dowling. His extensive knowledge and insight into film photography and cameras are inspiring. Dowling, a BBC editor and analog photographer, tested the LC-A 120 camera and became a LomoAmigo last year. He has since rekindled ties with the Lomo LC-A 120, and brought it on a trip to Malta.

Whatever the reason, there's almost always a story behind a picture, no matter how significant or trivial it may be. And for lomographers, nothing beats the feeling of having that story unfold in your hand, in the form of a print.
