Lomography x Agnes Obel: The Riverside Rumble ended over 2 years ago

Agnes Obel is one of Europe's biggest female musicians. Her album Philharmonics has gone platinum in France and Belgium, and triple platinum in Denmark! Now we have teamed up with her to bring you a competition inspired by her beautiful single Riverside.

The last year has been a whirlwind for Agnes Obel. Since releasing her disarmingly beautiful debut record Philharmonics last year, the Danish songstress has turned heads worldwide. Stripped down and centered around her evocative voice, Philharmonics flows with a blend of melancholy and optimism, embedded with further character by Obel’s love of combining sweet melodies with carefully considered lyrics. Often compared to artists like PJ Harvey, Joanna Newsom and even Roy Orbison, Agnes has earned praise from a wide range of critics worldwide. The album has become something of a phenomenon, having been at #1 for seven weeks in Denmark, top 10 in both France and the Netherlands, and has gone platinum in France, Belgium and triple platinum in Denmark.

This is the beautiful Super-8 video to Agnes’s single Riverside, watch it and get inspired! We want you to submit whichever of your shots best fits with the mood of this amazing song. Then once you’ve submitted your shots online, come and see Agnes Obel live at Lomography Gallery Store Soho!
