Earlier this week, we had our own go at a Lomo Caterpillar at the Lomography headquarter offices in Vienna in anticipation of the Lomography World Photo Caterpillar that is going down tomorrow at Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide. Check out some of the funniest shots from the middle of the caterpillar after the jump.
Standing in line for a while and then getting back to the end of the line. That idea doesn’t really excite you? Well, add some analogue cameras, different types of film and maybe even some props and you’re in for some fun time! That is what a Lomo Caterpillar is all about. In anticipation of the Lomography World Photo Caterpillar that is going down this Saturday at Lomography Gallery Stores worldwide, we made our own Lomo caterpillar at the headquarter offices in Vienna Check out some of the funniest shots from the Vienna caterpillar:
A Lomo Caterpillar basically consists of people standing in a line and taking a portrait of the person standing behind them. They then hand the camera to that person after taking their shot and that person repeats the process. After taking your shot, you move to the end of the line. This process can be continued until you have reached a certain destination or simply have run out of film. Any kind of props to use in the shots are sure going to add even more fun to the caterpillar. The resulting shots are then edited together to make a stop-motion animation. Of course, we also edited our shots together. You can check out the video right here.

Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
Go retro-futuristic with these photographs by Maria Svarbova that show off extremely controlled scenes and figures in mid-movement, no frill or joy, just austere compositions and the remarkable displays of discipline.
In the olden times, traveling was a rather intimate hobby. How so? To share one's journey to the unknown would require effort. Effort, in the sense you'd have to send them a keepsake with notes on the back. So why not relive the tradition of sending postcards with the Lomo'Instant Square?
The '90s was a memorable, incredible decade. Apart from the founding of Lomography and the community, there were other fads and pop culture icons that made noise, forever etching in the minds of many. Remember those Calvin Klein waistbands? We remember them, too.
London based photographer Alia Wilhelm is a regular contributor to forward thinking teen mag Rookie. She took a handful of Lomography films along to a photoshoot and talked to us about the joys of film photography and the trials and tribulations of being a teen.
Collage has been around since the invention of paper in China, and it has evolved throughout history. The earliest and most familiar point is when Surrealists and Dadaists began adapting the technique in photography. Here, we have today's trends on contemporary collage.
