Flashback to the LOMO Factory


What were you doing in 1999-2000? Where were you? Were you shooting Lomographs already? While in the mood to celebrate the LC-A’s legendary birth, let’s take a trip down memory lane to where it all began – !

These pictures were taken at the LOMO factory between 1999 and 2000 by people who worked there.

Many years passed, but they survived in dust boxes in the Russian Lomo embassy.

There are a lot of pictures and this is only a small part. It’s really interesting to look at these photos don’t you think? It’s like traveling back to the past with a time machine.

That’s is how the LOMO factory looked on the inside 10 years ago.
