As Lomography revives the dwindling popularity of film photography, The Print Room is calling for photo entries for an exhibition in March. Read more information after the break.
Since 1991, and the discovery of the Lomo LC-A, Lomography has become the new Kodak, by re-inventing the film photograph. Some people would say it’s instant art by not knowing the outcome of the Lomo photograph, but whether you love it or hate it, we can all say that the Lomo has revived the ever dwindling film photograph.
As The Print Room aspires to build awareness and enhance appreciation for the visual arts, particularly in classical fine arts photography. We thought that Lomography would be a perfect bridge for the Lomographers and aspiring film photographers to come together.
Images captured using a Lomographic camera should be sent to email@example.com and the gallery will exhibit your work. Images can consist of any subject and format while the minimum print size is A3.
Every month, thousands of film photography enthusiasts from all over the world join the Lomography community. We welcome yet another batch of talented newcomers who stood out from the rest because of their exceptional photos.
In an age where digital cameras provide more room for trial-and-error, practicality, and perfection, the revival of analogue cameras among photographers, artists, and hobbyists marks a shift of the standards of beauty in the art world.
Light Painting is a cool technique that we love to do when we're in the mood for experimenting with photos. It's super easy and fun, and it only requires a dark room, a friend or two to collaborate with, a camera with long exposure mode and a light painting tool to get started. Check out 50 of the most vibrant light painting photos taken by your fellow Lomographers after the cut!
In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.
Raymond Chin, otherwise known as Raywychin, is an experienced and active Lomographer based in Hong Kong. After showcasing photos taken using the LC-A 120, he continues to impress the community with images created using LomoChrome Turquoise color negative film.
