From 20-26th of June the hot-spots of Athens will turn into artistic places, it’s time for Fringe Festival! Right in the middle of it- at the Technopolis area – a whole house will be dedicated to Lomography. Vistors will be able to attend workshops, a scavenger hunt, watch movies and so on. But the main attraction will be of course be a beautilful, big LomoWall. The artworks of this years’ festival evolve around the topic “smile in the mind” and so does the LomoWall.

We know you love to laugh, so show us your smiles and what makes you happy so we can unite it in a LomoWall at the festival in Athens! Forget about fake smiles – we want the real ones! Be creative: lightpaint a smiley, make your teacher laugh, shoot the joyful leaps of your dog or even people crying at a wedding. We will pick the best photos from all over the world to form a 50m² LomoWall that will be exhibited throughout the whole festival.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
