LC-A Big Book Chapter 61: Thank You LOMO PLC

LOMO PLC represents, for many, a lifetime of hard and inventive work and most of its employees, Director Generals, PR managers and many Lomographers would agree with Efim Kaufman, the 68-year old friendly guide of the LOMO PLC-intern museum, when he says: “Earth is the best planet, St Petersburg the best city and LOMO PLC the best company in the world.”

With the end of the LOMO LC-A production in 2005, all that is left from the glory days of photographic and cinematographic production is a small little workshop in the depths of the Chugunnaya Street works. Here a dozen people assemble the famous Minitar 1 lens for the LOMO LC-A+. Today this is the last vestige of the once largest camera production factory in Russia…but who knows what the future will bring? LOMO PLC, however, is still on its way to exploring the world of modern market conditions, to attract capital, to respond to the demands of the worldwide market and to continue to produce and invent products of extraordinary optical quality. It remains one of the oldest Soviet companies and provides a splendid example of an enterprise that mastered the historically ground-breaking operation of leaping from an industrial heavy weight of socialism to capitalism successfully. LOMO PLC represents, for many, a lifetime of hard and inventive work and most of its employees, Director Generals, PR managers and many Lomographers would agree with Efim Kaufman, the 68-year old friendly guide of the LOMO PLC-intern museum, when he says: “Earth is the best planet, St Petersburg the best city and LOMO PLC the best company in the world.”

Have the full glory of the book here
