In the Jules Verne’s novel “Around the World in Eighty Days” , Phileas Fogg attempts to circumnavigate the world in 80 days.
I and Goonies , inspired by this novel , have decided to create a funny project ….
… Around the World in TWENTY-SEVEN SHOTS !
But we don’t need trains, boats, hot-air balloons, sleds or cars. We have only a DISPOSABLE CAMERA and this one will cross ALL THE FIVE CONTINENTS.
I will take the first shot around my city (Naples, Italy) then I will send the camera to one of you , in another country or continent, that will have to shoot just one picture and send the camera to another lomographer in another country . . . this one will have to shoot just one picture and send to another lomographer . . and so on !
At last, the camera will be send in Italy, to Goonies, that will shoot the last picture, develop and scan the film !
But our “Fujifilm Quicksnap Flash” disposable camera allows to take only 27 pictures.
The first one will be taken by me and the last one by Goonies.. so we need only 25 lomographers who live in different countries.
If you want to partecipate in this project, write your Lomo-Home as a comment under this post.
☆ Only the first 25 lomographers can partecipate in this project
☆ if two lomographers live in the same country, will be selected to partecipate in this project the lomographer who first wrote his LomoHome in the comments
☆ When the list of partecipants will be full , I will contact all the 25 lomographers, that will have to write me their home address and e-mail address by private messages
☆ When the camera will be in the hands of the “X” lomographer , this one have to contact me and I’ll send to him by private message the address of the “Y” lomographer, to which will send the camera. When the “Y” lomographer will receive the camera, I send to him the address of the “Z” lomographer and so on
☆ Each lomographer will send the camera to another one at his own expense
☆ Each lomographer will take only 1 shot
☆ At last, we will send the scanned image files to each of you.. and you have to post them in your Lomo-Homes !
