Lost in the Supermarket Rumble


The supermarket is an explosion of different colours and patterns. Perfect subjects for a Lomograph, yes?

Carrying your shopping basket, roaming around the supermarket … there are plenty of photogenic things that you can find there. Lined up neatly in different colours, the labeled cans, boxes, tubes, fruits, and bottled grocery items make a delicious wall of patterns! If you’ve been secretly taking pictures in supermarket aisles, snapping from the shopping cart or basket (there are a few establishments that prohibit picture-taking – but we know you’re quite the rebellious type!) why not share with us your supermarket shots?

    One day I was stopped by a security guard of the supermarket that forced me not to take more photos. I said that there was no warning about not taking photos. Now to the supermarket entrance there is a warning says: NO PICTURES!

    Meet our LomoGuru: zulupt

    Aside from being an immensely talented lomographer, what makes him a perfect LomoGuru is his burning desire to share his knowledge.

To keep them motivated, Hugo organizes workshops and tours on different film photography techniques and DIY tricks.

Roomy shirts, versatile jeans, and soft shoes conform to our ever-busy schedules. On the other hand, a vintage sensibility is about polish. The lesson from men of yore? Tailored fit makes all the difference.
