Carl Barat and the Manic Street Preachers - Lomographers?

Film cameras make an appearance in two top album releases: The Libertine's Carl Barat on the cover of his new solo album and the cover of The Manic Street Preachers new release. Does this mean they share a love of Lomography?

Carl Barat releases his long awaited solo album this month and has chosen to use his own photography in the artwork. Carl told NME magazine “The artwork’s basically just photographic,” he said. “The front cover is basically me just taking a photograph in the mirror. Just because it’s a self-titled professional album and I’m just kind of naked and it just shows me how it is.” He added: “I didn’t want to be clever about it. I thought the mirror thing’s quite clever, but I’ve been told that’s been done a lot.”

He talks about his photography in a video interview for NME here

Meanwhile The Manics are sporting an instant camera on the cover of their new album. Postcards from a young man features a black and white photograph of British actor Tim Roth holding an instant camera.

Two album covers, two cameras. Do you know of any other new releases with Lomo connections?

    Awesome... but also I have to say Tim Roth is now one of my fav. actors since he supports instant cameras. :3 He also makes shirtless lomography look good; something you wont ever catch me doing!

    as can be seen by the Jack Holga and Meg Diana+, the white stripes use all analouge photos for their artwork and whatnot. and their newest film, Under Great White Northern Lights, is shot in all film.
