At the very famous Louvre museum in Paris, you can find the magnificent Arteum gallery store. The products will satisfy everyone there: paintings, art books, design objects, and other lovely things, Lomography cameras for instance!
We interviewed Thibaud, purchase director at Arteum:
How did you start your Lomographic experience ?
I bought my first Lomo camera without knowing the Lomography brand. In Montreal, I literally felt in love with the Fisheye 2 that I constantly kept with me. The Fisheye 2 was also my first analogue camera and I started to become passionate with analogue photography with it.
Which one is your favourite Lomography camera and why ?
My favorite camera is the LCA+.
In my shop, I would choose the Diana F+. The medium format, that’s life.
Where is the best place to shoot some Lomographic masterpieces in your city ?
Belleville is lovely! Alive, full of people, exotic and moving, this is a pleasure to print all the energy in this place.
