2012 has been quite an eventful year for Lomography UK. There have been parties, launches, exhibitions, cocktails and laughter. Now we are about to start a brand new year where the fun starts all over again. So we've collected the most memorable and eventful moments of the past 12 months in our Lomography UK Top 5 Events of the Year! See if you can guess what came in at number 1?
In at number 3 on our Lomography UK Top 5 Events of the Year is the launch of our London and Manchester Lomowalls!
If you missed the action this summer where were you? This summer London hosted The Olympic games. To celebrate this idea of inspiring and achieving London we built a HUGE Lomowall at the Museum Of London (MOL), with over 30,000 images taken by the Lomography community. At the beginning of the year we set up some special MOL workshops and shot some amazing photos of various paralympic athletes in training. All these photos were included in the final Lomowall. You can see some articles here:
Then we received the photos and stuck each and every on by hand onto the panels. We put on our overalls, grabbed our drills and built the Lomowall.
The wall stayed there for 6 months and survived the cold and rain. It’s still there now so if you get the chance to visit the Museum Of London over Christmas, go and see it!
On top of all that Madness, our kids in Manchester made a lomowall of their very own, this one is a little bit smaller bit it totally permanent, go here to see it in all its glory!
Tune in soon to find out who came in at number 2.
