Dumbarton Lomography Underpass Project


A public art project in Scotland has recently been completed with analogue photos from a selection of Lomography Cameras! In this public art project, an underpass development in a poor part of Scotland was transformed with eye-catching photographs taken by children native to the locale. Read on to discover the images of these talented kids who’d never before worked with analogue cameras!

West Dunbartonshire is one of the most deprived areas in Scotland and is where this community photography project was commissioned.

The Tullochan Trust is an organization that works with young people in this area in hopes to better their lives by offering activities to enable them to become enterprising contributors to society. Together with 6274 Public Art, an public art commissions agency in Scotland, and with the funding of West Dunbartonshire Council, the kids of Tullochan Trust picked up their Lomography cameras to take photos of their surroundings.

Besides learning about analogue photography and the different functions and effects of Lomography cameras, the kids were given the opportunity to experience their environment in a new light. They are now also exhibitors, with their vibrant creations on display at the Strathleven Underpass Development.
