Track Back to the Past Rumble

15

Taking a walk down memory lane is infinitely better when you've got the great Lomography community walking along with you. It's time for nostalgia with this exciting treasure find of a rumble!

Lomography’s 20th Birthday is just around the corner, and we’re getting a little nostalgic of how time quickly passed. There’s nothing quite like looking at old photographs and rekindling long forgotten memories. Old photos carry a ton of emotions and endless stories – from stills of your grandpappy in the military, wedding snapshots of your parents, to photos of you playing dress-up when you were a mere lass.

We want you guys to scan these vintage memorabilia, and send them in so that they get their chance at the modern lime light! The most interesting photos we get receive 10 Piggies each – plus an amazing chance to look back into your personal photographic history. Time to dust off those photo albums in your living rooms!

Details:

  • Prizes: 5 winners of 10 Piggies.
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated.
  • Upload Limit: 10 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px.
  • Submissions must be tagged with approximate date taken (1960s, 1970s, etc) to be eligible to win
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags).

    I'd upload a photo from 1930, but "Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)", no way...

    "Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)" .... yep, same here. I have hundreds funny and crazy pictures from the past. Which film, camera ? I would not know, if those would have been taken one year ago. And I always love the sentence "Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated." too :-)) If any analog pictures has to become digitized, it always needs to be "manipulated" somehow ( scanner settings, etc. ) ... and I often noticed, that it even needs to be manipulated for getting a look, closest to the original picture.

    can the meta data rule be waived? there's no way any of us know what camera or film was used

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

    Argus Paul Estabrook's Surreal Work in Paper Cutting

    The characters in Argus Paul Estabrook's work in paper cutting are the stuff nightmares are made of: unusual forms, jagged edges, arms outstretched as if seeking salvation—all emphasized further by the plain white background on which they are placed. Combined, these details paint a picture straight out of Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy."
