First Day Low-Down

Day One kicked off with the unveiling of the magnificent LomoWall, which as you can see looks a bit like a Wizard of Oz, techni-coloured, LomoBrick Road! Two-thousand Photokina visitors streamed through the Lomography Lounge taking in the luminous LomoWall. There were analogue workshops and speeches galore to the tune of the Dj Team Kompott’s set, plus a special performance showcasing the sweet harmonies of the Vienna Swing Sisters.

Find your Images on the great Photokina Lomowall!

Of course you want to know if your image made it onto the great Photokina LomoWall! So Mandi, Lomography Archive Maestro, devised a cunning way of shooting every panel and compiling them into an interactive LomoWall where you can zoom in and search for your analogue masterpieces! You can also feast your eyes in depth on the wonder that is the Photokina LomoWall!

And last, but not least, here are some pictures from today’s happenings in the Lomography Analogue Lounge:

    Jeez, I spent 3 hours scanning through the complete wall. Now my eyes are a little... weird. But I found 9 of my submissions, one of them in supersize :)
    Can't even imagine how long it took you guys to create this wall.
