    Photo by prabu

    Apart from making stunning photos filled with remarkable bokeh and swirly backgrounds, the Petzval Art Lens also has an amazing story to tell. The Lomography HQ is proud to call Vienna its home – the same place where Joseph Petzval invented his game-changing, top-quality optics. Lomography pays homage to Joseph Petzval’s contribution to photography by recreating the original Petzval Lens and adapting it to the modern age. Aside from that, Lomography also paid respect to the innovator by visiting significant places that commemorate his life and craft. Read all about it on these articles. We also captured our Petzval pilgrimage on video, you can watch it here. Want to join in on our tribute to the Petzval legacy?
