KOMONO X Lomography: Conceptions of Time

6

“Imagine a world in which there is no time. Only images.” ― Alan Lightman, Einstein's Dreams. We want you to show us what time is like for you, in your own world.

We’re teaming up with the retro-futuristic watchmaker KOMONO to bring you a perfectly ‘timed’ competition to kickstart 2014. Actually, there’s no collective ‘perfect’ when it comes to an understanding of time, which can only be individual, or at most, ‘similar’ to inhabitants of a specific city or society. We want you to share your concept of time in an analogue photo!

You can draw inspiration by browsing through the photos on our site that have been tagged by Time.

So go on, pickup your time-capturing device and share your perception of time with us.

    There is nothing better 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. And you showed us what it's like to be on time.
