We (15 lomographers from lomographyasia.com) held our very first Lomo exhibition here with the help of sponsorship by Galeriiizu (venue sponsor) and Folio (event sponsor). This is very meaningful to us since we’d worked so hard for this exhibition together from scratch to the exhibition itself. We are really thankful to Mr. Izu for all the help and providing us a great venue to make the “I AM LOMOMALAYSIAN” Lomography exhibition work! We would like to thank Folio for all the sponsoring as well. Without the help from both parties, this exhibition would have never ever taken place.

For this article, I took a series of photos at the Swing Crash Festival in my city, Como, held in June 2015.
