Building the First Lomowall in Peru

3

For over a year, we organized the first Lomowall in Peru. With the help of the local and the international community, we managed to collect more than 4,000 photos to build the wall! Here's a small review of the work!

To build a Lomowall is more difficult than it seems, especially for us, as it was our first time! Luckily, after Mandy’s explanation on how to build one (believe me, if anyone knows about Lomowalls, it’s Mandy!) we had a better idea of what to do and not to do.

The first step was to make a local announcement and another one on Lomography.com. Within a few days we had hundreds of photos to choose from. The task was very difficult because each photo was better than the other one!

After viewing and selecting photos for a couple of mornings, we went to the lab to enlarge more than 4,000 photos. I still remember the face of the girl in the lab, “4,000 photos?”

Once we had the 18 bags of photos, it was time to cut them one by one. Hours, days passed and we finally got all the photos cut and ready!

With the help of our Lomo Builders we put up the design on the sheets and started to stick photo by photo. After several hours and pizzas, we finished sticking the photos.

We did a little trip to the store and bought the essentials to build the structure that was going to hold the Lomowall.

We did many calculations and tests, and finally, we had the first column of the Lomowall. The rest was easy; we just repeated the steps.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
