The LC-Wide Race: Lomographers are Meant to DIY

The DIY craze is all around the Lomography Community nowadays. We just can't really help working on our own when it comes to craft, eh?

But did you think that Lomographers just got into the DIY craze? If yes, then darling you got it wrong! For even long ago, Lomographers have been gaga over the thought of “doing-it-yourself.” So gaga that it was even a huge part of the LC-A Race!

Just like this diary from spendospend which was a part of the LC-A race. Spendospend was a racer for the Euro Team 1 and he sure did an awesome job with this DIY diary (a very important task of the race, I tell you!) Just look at those swift handwritings, cut boxes and photographs, and that lovely purple case! Just can’t help but adore it!

Here’s another one from racer dirklancer who was part of North America Team 1. Another creatively done journal which he, of course, did by himself! Check out photos from his journal below.

Finally, let us not forget the packages from various LC-A race teams which all arrived beautifully done in DIY. Check out those LC-A’s and its adornments!

Browse more LC-A Race journal updates here.

Aren’t they just lovely! And it is such an awesome thing to know that they were done with creative hands and analogue lovin’ hearts! It makes us all excited for the upcoming LC-Wide Race and the DIY stuff that will result out of it! Hooray for DIY!
