Analogue and consequently lomography, is becoming more and more a fancy theme to “carry around”. For those who thought this movement had its days counted, now you can be sure that it’s here to stay and to embellish a new era. But, aren’t the aesthetics overlapping functionality?
What’s on your mind when you decide to pick the next camera for your collection? Are the aesthetics also important or only what you can do with it? Or maybe both? What concerns me, I really appreciate the camera’s design. For me, most of them are beautiful, and I wish I could have them all, but when I need to choose, their function is what more influences. Whatever it is, the Diana F+ square format or the Lomo LC-A functionality, what comes first in my decision is definitely each camera’s essence.
Next, you can check some amazing examples of some awesome lomographers’ work with their own beloved cameras.
Nowadays, we can find plenty of attractive cameras, with various shapes and colors. Which one do you think has the best looks? Which one catches your attention more? Does the size and weight influence your choice? For me, the Lubitel 166+ is the most beautiful camera, and I’m lucky to have this pretty thing already in my hands. But since they look this way, so attractive, this art’s concept is sometimes misunderstood. More and more, and sometimes just because it looks hipster, you can see people using cameras as fashion accessories. Do you agree with this concept?
Next, you can peek at some interesting photos by lomographers that can’t move away from their small treasures.
