The LOMO LC-Wide 13: A Lens Came to Save Us


It’s seeing which establishes our place in the surrounding world. If this is true, what happens when we see, feel and capture the world through an ultra-wide-angle lens?

Is our third eye being opened? Is the elusive 6th sense freed from our imprisoned brain? Is our mind expanded to new, previously unknown dimensions? Are we experiencing a natural high, like a never-ending psychedelic trip? Do colors appear differently? Are we finally able to understand the meaning of life? Are we headed towards a more democratic and free society?

Can we suddenly talk with horses, cats, bugs and dolphins? Are we exploring the hidden depths of outer space? Are we able to grasp the infinity of the universe? Can we turn our heads a full 360 degrees? Is there life after death and why does bread always fall buttered-side down?

And if there are any highly-evolved aliens out there that have long since solved all of these questions – is it possible they invented the LOMO LC-Wide before us?

“A wonderful harmony is created when we join together the seemingly unconnected.”
(Heraclitus, c. 535–c. 475 BCE, fragments)
