Our Thoughts Are With Japan


As we read about the devastating news from Japan, we are stunned and shocked. As a community, we need to come together and help our fellow friends, our Lomography family, as well as people in need.

Lomography would like to offer this platform for those of you who would like to share words of support for the people of Japan. Please feel free to comment on this blog post words of encouragement, advise on how to help, anything we can offer as support.

If you are interested in donating money to help the victims, please make sure the organization you are donating to is valid. Before you donate money, check out the Better Business Bureau, or a similar site in your country, do your research to make sure your money and supplies are being spent in the most helpful manner.

We would also like to ask Lomographers around the world to share photomails with our Japanese community members as a way of showing we care and our thoughts are with them.
