Favorite Lomo LC-A Snaps from Long Ago

When a group of Viennese students stumbled upon the Lomo LC-A a couple of decades back, they were astounded with the images the small enigmatic Russian camera could create. The photos were bathed in saturated hues and cloaked in lovely vignettes – unlike anything they had ever seen.

You’re probably familiar with the photo above, but have you ever wondered what the rest of the photos taken by those inspired students from Vienna looked like? Ever wondered how those vibrant images made such an impression that more and more people wanted the hard-to-find camera? You can stop guessing, as we are happy to take you on a walk along memory lane with some of the LC-A photos taken decades ago no other by the people who started the Lomographic Society and nurtured it to become the creative, passion-fueled movement that it is today.

The Lomo LC-A is the camera that started the Lomography movement. With full controls and wide ISO range, this automatic gem is perfect for beginners and professionals alike. Get your own Refurbished LC-A in our Shop!

    Fantastic article. Such great shots. Do you happen to know what film would have been in the camera? Were they photographers before they became Lomographers?
