From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what's exciting, unique, and important in the art world. So it was only a matter of time before Lomography had its moment in the MoMA spotlight!

In the modern art world, there are few museums on the planet as esteemed and revered for their ability to recognize important artistic movements as the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what’s exciting, unique, and important in the art world.

The images used to build the LomoWalls were assembled from two online photo rumbles that resulted in submissions from 28 countries around the world. While checking out these massive and breathtaking installations be sure to check out the latest array of Lomographic products available at the MoMA Design Stores, including the special edition MoMA DianaF+.

    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.
