THE 10 PROPHECIES BOOK from Susie Lomovitz on Vimeo.

Why did you choose the prophecy you chose? What does this prophecy mean to you?

Actually I didn’t chose one, I picked the ten prophecies. What I thought was, “why should we choose when we can have them all?”. I think all the 10 prophecies together are stronger than just one. All of them together are a great and powerful philosophy to all lomographers around the world.

Why did you choose to represent it as you did?

As I said before, I chose the ten prophecies because they sound like a powerful “manifesto” to me when they are all together, like a great lomo-philosophy. And I thought they should be compiled somewhere, in something like a bedside book. So I created “The 10 Prophecies Book”, a very analogue handmade manifesto. I also filmed a making-of video while I was making the book, so all lomographers can be there in some way, “we are all making our prophecies”, instead of me alone making my single prophecy.

What do you think would be a good 11th Prophecy?

Be genuine, do what you want,
don’t try to be anyone else but you,

    A Salute to the Masters: Judo (A Tribute to Sabine Weiss)

    This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!
