Want to take part in an amazing Lomographic experiment? On March 23rd, we will be creating a Photo Caterpillar at Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide. Not sure what a Photo Caterpillar is? Slide your way past the jump to get the full details and see an example!
Ladies and gentleman, on March 23rd 2013, history will happen. We are planning a mega-fun and monumentally long analogue Photo Caterpillar! For those of you who don’t know what a Photo Caterpillar is, the idea is simple:
1. We all stand in a loooooooooooooong line and shoot photos of each other with analogue cameras
2. The photos are then edited together to form a stop-motion animation.
We did an awesome Photo Caterpillar back in 2010 in London (check out the video below), but to celebrate our new Analogue Day campaign, we would like to take the idea global! We will be having a Photo Caterpillar shoot at every store worldwide on March 23rd. We’d love for you to come down to your local store and help make the video; it’s sure to be a ton of fun! Once we have done the photo-soot at each store, the scans will be edited into a video showing all the people who took part across the globe. Let’s show the world how many dedicated analogue photographers there are!
Interested in joining the fun? GREAT! For the exact time of your local Lomography Caterpillar, check the local articles for your Store below (more will be added over the coming days). See you on the 23rd!
Between this October and March next year, the public will finally be able to see for the first time what is now believed to be the oldest existing movie starring a cast of black actors. Details about the exhibit after the jump!

There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.
A vacation is a trove of vibrant objects: the countertop of sublime-looking drinks, the mosaic tiles that line an Olympic-sized pool, the nautical stripes of beach chairs. We remember in detail, and photography is our way to anticipate what we will catalog long after the break is over. This Lomography Color Negative gallery celebrates the still life wonders of these dreamy holidays.

In more ways than one, Lomography is an art form as much as it is an effective tool to communicate. This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin. Read further to learn more about the project and event.
Other than the exciting range of products, there’s more to see in the Lomography Embassy Store Vienna. There is also a new exhibit of works from various photographers around the world. A new exhibit by the artist Ona B., will be kicked off with an opening party on the 9th of December.
