Diane Arbus is known for her black and white square format images. This rumble is inspired by the above photo of twins Cathleen and Colleen Wade. The iconic photo was echoed in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, and just like that, we would like you to submit photos of twins in black and white square format. You can use the LC-Wide, Diana F+, Lubitel, or any other analogue cameras capable of shooting square format.

  • Prize(s): 1st place: 15 Piggies, 2nd place: 10 Piggies, and 3rd place: 5 Piggies. All winners will receive a special award badge straight to their LomoHomes.
  • Film/Camera Type: Black and white film. Any analogue camera capable of shooting square format.
  • Keep in mind the theme of the rumble – twins.
  • Upload Limit: 3 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags).
  • Deadline of submission is on April 20, 2012.
