We had the Lomo LC-A Race some three years ago and it made Lomographers giddy and anxious of the huge results! And now we’re bringing back the intense feeling with The LC-Wide Race! Yup, our photos are wider now!

The LC-Wide Race will compose of 5 teams from 5 continents and will be held over 5 stages (a stage being one stop with a Lomographer in the team.) Each team will receive their corresponding guidelines, an LC-Wide camera, films, a notebook, and certain cool stuff for every task/mission. These are each team’s essentials as they shoot and pass the camera around for 10 weeks or even more. With these, challenges and big prizes await every Lomographer!

So you think you can be part of this world wide event? Then let us know by dropping us an e-mail at lcwiderace2012@lomography.com with the following details:

  • Subject: Racer Wannabe
  • Name:
  • LomoHome
  • Full Address
  • E-mail Address

We will be accepting applicants until September 2 who we will then short list into 5 teams. Get on with the LC-Wide Race!

    Black and White Photography: The Forms of the World

    Colors may be amped to look unreal, like nothing of this world. Shots may be doubled, cross-processed, post-processed, mixed up into collages. The possibilities are infinite, yet some photographers still prefer black and white. Even in 2016, it is an ode to classic values of precision and balance. Light and shadow must be one pleasing dance. And just like in a well-choreographed piece, forms are obvious or playing coy. It all depends on how you're looking.

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    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.

    Vintage Gallery: Headpieces from Around the World

    A hat is in the position to be noticed before any other item of clothing. Its shape and texture can immediately call to mind cultural associations. A cloche is to 1920s fashion as a picture hat is to the 1900s. The wide-brimmed or fur-lined variety, on the other hand, is more functional for tribes.

    Kamila K Stanley: Boundless Imaginarium

    For this young artist, photography is not just a tally of sights. Set in light or dusk, it is a record of sensations. Shared bliss and awe are as much part of the scenery as the clouds. There is a sense of flight even on land.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.
