The time has come - Toronto is doing its own LomoMatrix! I know all of you analogue fans are itching to participate, and we're digging right into our Lomographic community to find you. If you've got a 35mm camera and interested in creating a masterpiece with the Lomography Canada team, then this is perfect for you!
The LomoMatrix is one of Lomography’s most interesting and unique events. It’s been done in Paris, Manila, London, Chile, Berlin, and we think it’s about time to get one going in Toronto, Canada! What is a LomoMatrix you ask? See for yourself… Check out Paris’ LomoMatrix here!
