How I Created My First LomoWall

2012-01-17

The LomoWall, a board full of random lomographic photos, was the idea and invention of our lomographic community. This was the first major thing I wanted to make when I first signed in to the Lomographic Society.

I wanted to do this a while back but I didn’t have time. Planning is as important as choosing the right photos.

All I needed were:

  • scissors
  • 100 × 70 cm cardboard
  • photos (I used 49 photos)
  • 2 rulers
  • duct tape

To start, I chose the order of the photos. I then calculated how many photos I can put on the wall and added a space in between the photos. For 7 rows and 7 columns, I included a 1cm space between each photo.

Then I taped them one by one using 2 rulers to get a straight line of photos. If available, you can use cellophane to cover and protect your photos.
