LomoMission 69: Back to the Future!

54

Are you ready to go Back to the Future? Take a ride with Marty McFly as you go back in time. Make sure you have your Lomo cameras with you before you go though!

Great Scott! This month’s LomoMission entails rummaging through old photos and finding matching outfits. Inspired by Irina Werning's amazing art project Back to the Future we have come up with our latest LomoMission! Of course we want everything analogue so please no digital shots! If you’re ready to submit your shots, just make a diptych using Photoshop, GIMP, or other programs. For the funniest and most inventive photo, the prize of a Sprocket Rocket awaits while Piggies go to the runners-up! So get your creative juices flowing and take a trip down memory lane!

Just to be clear, what we are looking for in this mission is that you find an old picture and recreate it as well as possible. Try to take the picture in the same place, with the same subjects and even the same outfits. Once you have taken the picture, make a diptych and post ONE image of both the old picture and the modern recreation. If you are still confused, take a look at Irina Werning's amazing art project Back to the Future. That should give you a sense of what we are looking for.

  • Prize(s): 1 winner of a Sprocket Rocket. The winner will also receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: 5 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

By submitting your photos to this rumble, you allow Lomography.com to use your submitted photos for promotional purposes.

    "Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated"

    WAIT JUST A SECOND

    No one gets it right! The idea is to take an analogue photo of yourself (or your brother, your cousin, etc.) that resembles that old pic your mamma treasures in your family album! So, first you should pick the right photo and try to redo it as exactly as possible... Good luck!

    Uh oh...I submitted before it began. Do I get a "do-over?" lol

    @ ALL: In order to be considered for this competition, you must submit one photo which includes the original image you are trying to recreate as well as your recreation of that image!

    Ahh i need to go back to my hometown to look over the old pictures of me ! This rumble going to be fun ! Good luck to all : )

    @luiggiox if that is what the competition is, then it isn't very clear. Nowhere in the brief does it say 'take a photo of someone to replicate an old one'.

    I guess the confusion results from the embedded pic of the two girls in this article. It had been more clear if some actual work / pohotos of Irina Werning had been included into the description as an example.

    Having that said, this project is absolutely awesome (I had a good time looking at Irina's site) and I will browse through some family albums later this day! I remember there was a picture of my, 1 or 2 years old, wearing my fathers motorbike boots, jacket and helmet and a diaper :D (I haven't decided if have the courage to do this, though ;))

    BTW, how much time do we have for this?

  17. cruzron

    until the end of april!

    @all - please do check out this link - irinawerning.com/back-to-the-fut/back-to-the-future/ for what we are trying to do. thanks!

  19. atreyuthechild

    Ah all makes sense now. Irina's stuff is amazing... I have no idea how she manages to match the colours so well and the backgrounds are unchanged in all these years. It's going to be hard...

    cool:)

    yeah, the explanation is not very clear...!

    hope i understood it right (:
    is meta data ok in my entry?

  25. kobehasanidea
    kobehasanidea ·

    What if we don't know the meta data of the picture that we are trying to recreate?

  26. natalieerachel
    natalieerachel ·

    Ohhhhhh I see, okay. So we still need the matching outfits?

  27. kobehasanidea

    Wow, really excited about this one!

  31. yawny

    @gabysalas, and what if the photo is made of some more then 1 photos merged together on film by accident, like here --> www.lomography.com/homes/yawny/albums/1693111-lyosha/photos…

    not ok for this competition??

  32. gabysalas
    gabysalas ·

    @yawny: your photo is in the running, do you feel it is the best representation of the challange, if so, then it's up to the judges to decide!

  33. yawny
    yawny ·

    well I don't really feel its the best one, but it fits the theme. Just wanted to know if its ok with the rules)

  34. quaisoir
    quaisoir ·

    wow...irina's work is marvelous!

  35. graziosa9

    can you extend the this rumble til 1st week of may please? il fly home this weekends and will find old photos of my parents! pls....:)

  36. atreyuthechild
    atreyuthechild ·

    so many of the submissions do not fit the theme at all.... it's pretty simple - find an old photograph, take a photo which looks almost exactly the same (same location, clothes, props) but the model is older now.

    Sorry @yawny but i don't see how yours fits that description either? I had loads of good ideas but haven't had the time to recreate any... I might just do it for fun when I get the time.

  37. renenob
    renenob ·

    I need extension for this!

  38. renenob

    PLEASE extend this Rumble! My photos will be arriving in 3 to 4 days.

  39. pomps
    pomps ·

    I totally agree please extend it! I´d love to participate but no time to find old photos as my mother has moved all photos are still packed :)

  40. bio_lenta
    bio_lenta ·

    Now that I see most submissions don't seem to be within the rules, I would love it to be extended for another day, at least, lol.

  41. carmenism
    carmenism ·

    I hate to be a party pooper, but extending it isn't really fair to those of us who got our submissions in already. :/ This contest has been going on for weeks and it's not like it wasn't advertised...

  42. bio_lenta
    bio_lenta ·

    Well, that's true. I just hope there is enough "true" competition. Maybe I'll have time tomorrow ;)

  43. renenob
    renenob ·

    Please extend this for two days, please?

  44. bio_lenta
    bio_lenta ·

    So i managed to finish a roll today... last four shots were at home and getting back to the future :) gotta process tomorrow and upload :D

  45. bio_lenta
    bio_lenta ·

    and just realized today is children's day in Mexico :)

    why do so many people submit photos that are completely NOT what the comp is asking for?!!? :(

  49. lizbradley3
    lizbradley3 ·

    Did it get extended? People not following directions shouldn't ruin it for those of us that did. :(

  50. yawny
    yawny ·

    @atreyuthechild well ok, i just thought same person and clothes could be enough. anyways I didnt hope for anything with this as it turned out a bit wrong

  51. carmenism
    carmenism ·

    @lizbradley3, I agree. :(

  52. fivedayforecast
    fivedayforecast ·

    I don't understand why people can't figure out how to follow instructions for this comp...

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
