Free Lomographic Art!

47

I've had loads of photos made and I leave them everywhere with a sticker on the back so people can take a look at my home if they want!

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve had a couple of hundred prints made of images from my Lomohome. I’ve stickered these on the back saying ‘FREE ART-(space to write your web address)’ ‘Find more Lomographs on-line’. These postcards I’ve started leaving everywhere and taking a photo if its possible. I’ve also added double sided tape to the backs of some so these can be stuck on to items.

I’ve added these postcards to the backs of seats on trains and park benches. I’ve also put them in books in the library and also in postcard racks in various shops!

Its a great feeling to know that people will look at these and maybe take them home and take a look at your other shots. but some may just get thrown away… it’s their loss! Go on show off your work in way that will make people smile and look at the world in a different light… Start giving people FREE ART!

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.

    Nothing Happens on Color Film: Street Life in Como As Seen From the Bus

    Some weeks ago, I made a tribute to the great photographer Robert Frank and his 1958 black and white series taken in New York from a bus window. He is the master of the ordinary moments, capturing the essence of daily life in a series of free and random sequence of photos where nothing important happens! And as I've written there I wanted to take a similar experiment with color film, which would change the perception of the environment where people live. Read more after the jump!

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    Watch: 'One Day In A Lomo'Instant' Video

    A lot happens in a day, made up of those little moments that we usually take for granted. So we asked some of our friends from the Lomography team to capture some instant photos throughout one day, using the Lomo'Instant Camera. The result? A collection of memories that they could catch, hold, and cherish forever. We compiled their instant moments into a cool video, which you can check out after the cut!
