If you’ve long been an ardent lomographer, you must already be familiar with the little Russian beauty that sparked creativity and passion among analogue-loving people around the world. The Lomo LC-A was that one camera that started it all—the enduring analogue photography movement, the massive cult following, and the vibrant community that has become part of our daily lives.

The Lomo LC-A's colorful history tells us that the analogue wonder was born in 1984 in St. Petersburg, Russia. That makes it 28 glorious years of analogue goodness and quality craftsmanship. In its career that spans nearly three decades and counting, the LC-A has also been redesigned in several enduring guises. Let’s take a look at them once again!
