The Lomographic Embassy in Chile proudly presents its first photo intervention project: the Pano + Lomo + Graphy. A two stage community action... come on in and take a look to the video of our project!
Last August, Lomography Chile was working on a secret project to be part of the 2nd anniversary of one of the biggest and most important cultural center in Santiago: Centro Gabriela Mistral (aka GAM).
In an open call, 10 Lomographers and their Diana F+ where invited to be part of this event. The goal: to make a big panorama of GAM using Analogue techniques.
In the first stage, we met to shoot the facade and the central patio with our plastic cameras and some 800 Lomography Film as the area to be photographed didn´t receive direct light. We even had to push some films for the darker spots!
Later, with all the rolls processed, we made a selection of 112 shots that would be used to give life to this huge panorama!
Finally, to build up this exhibition we used the “band poster” thechnique. We printed all the pictures in 70 × 70 cms and stuck them to a big wall with wheat paste. After 6 hours of work and 20 liters of wheat paste, our analogue present was done!
We loved this project, especially the production of it as it perfectly resumes the analogue experience in photography of not really knowing what will be the final outcome, and having a dose of classic “lovable errors” like double exposure, light leaks, etc.
Thanks to all those who helped in making this project come true: Centro Cultural GAM, the Diana team, the Harinaguas team and the film team (Clickr) // Coca, Peropero, Gabriela Castro, Macarena Becas, Fram, Iaki, Paloma Mas, Javier Díaz, Felipe Cáceres, Tam, Alfredo Peñaloza, Sabino Aguad, Lomochile, Vania Contreras y Zeube.
