Lomography Keeps Analogue Photography Alive at photokina 2012


In a mission to keep analogue photography alive in today’s era, Lomography partnered up with another analogue company, Das Telefonbuch, to create Germany’s largest analogue map. People all over the world who came to visit both photokina 2012 as well as the city of Cologne were definitely taken aback by this project. Find out what it’s all about after the jump.

From September 18-23, 2012, in front of Cologne’s main train station, you’ll be able to enjoy a massive 1000 meter-squared map of Germany made out of over 150,000 lomographs taken by Lomography’s community in Germany.

Matthias Fiegl, one of Lomography’s founders, explains how photography has changed since 1996 when photokina invited Lomography to present its artwork. Now that the photography world has changed into digital, Lomography is one of the companies that is still celebrating analogue photography.

The LomoMap of Germany is one of Lomography’s efforts to keep analogue alive as well as to invite new people into the analogue world of photography.
