Lomography X ReStore Living: Personal Photo Pairings Rumble

3

As you shoot each roll of film you'll most often take a handful of snaps on the same day and even in the same spot. In that duration your frame of mind would have elapsed much. Perhaps it's a sunny day and you're enveloped in a daydream while you're snapping your beautiful friend across the café table. We want you to share your personal photo pairings with us and in essence, the essence of a memory.

That being said, perhaps you’re the type that takes one photo a day or assigns themes to the rolls you shoot. Different settings, different feelings, but identical subject matter. These are “natural” pairings, though we’re calling out to you to share not just these but also your “personal” pairings.

For our creative competition we would like you to expand upon the theme of growth. This can for instance be about growth in photography, personal development, growth with your trade, studies, or even a particular individual. These photos can be of two completely different things and not make sense to us observers – the challenge how you convey your story.

Singapore’s vintage store ReStore Living will pick x4 pieces to be displayed in their café! And they’ve awesomely handpicked a sturdy vintage suitcase from their private collection (in which you can stash all your films and photographic equipment when traveling) to be won along with packs of lovely Lomography Film! So start creating and compelling us with your stories so that others may soon encounter them hanging in a vintage and contemplative environment.

    Hmmm the format allows me to upload one photo at a time instead of a pairing..

    Hi @eviesoul thanks for your message.

    You need to use an external editing tool such as Photoshop to simply pair them together. Upload your creation as high-res photo – both images should be flat and clear as in the images shown in this post. If you would like to upload two separate photos put they're meant to go together, that's alright too, we'll understand and be able to view them.

    Lomo-on!

    Playing Detective: An Interview with Derek Woods, the Man Behind the Controversial True Detective Photo (NSFW)

    Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.
