Trend Hunter Features The Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner

Toronto-based blog Trend Hunter tracks down the latest trends from photography to art to technology, and many more! This time around, the Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner was on their radar - Check it out after the loop!

Calling it a “Film-Saving Gadget,” the Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner was featured on Trend Hunter, the world’s largest, most popular trend community. With 35,000,000 views a month, we’re honoured that the Film Scanner made its way to this well-known website.

Some of the notable quotes from the feature include mentioning that this “incredible success [from the Kickstarter pledges] says a lot about the longing photographers feel for the now nostalgic film medium.” We most definitely agree with that!

Trend Hunter has also been great friends and supporters of ours at Lomography Canada. Check out the time they took over the LGS Toronto during their Andy Warhol workshop!

    Lomography Singapore and Parallel Planets Present: 'Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition'

    Lomography Singapore plays host to Parallel Planets’ first exhibition, "Façades: Neo-Noir Portraits Exhibition," featuring all-analog photography: a sea of black and white film portraits. This exhibition serves as a platform where both local and international photographers can express themselves by injecting individual perspectives into their craft. It also encourages viewers to look through the lens of the photographers, to see the subjects as who they are – flawed, alive, and breathing – and to also see beyond the façades we all choose to don.
