We’ve been having these Stop Motion Sundays for a while now, but before we proceed any further, have you ever wondered how the first stop-motion animated films looked like?
Stop motion animation has been around since the early 1900s, where artists used the technique to show objects moving as if by magic. One of the pioneers on this field was the Russian photographer and entologist Wladislaw Starewicz.
The stars of his early stop-motion films are unlikely – he uses real insects such as beetles, dragonflies and grasshoppers, which he controls using wires and sealing wax, and directs them in meticulously-made miniature sets.
In fact, one of his early masterpieces The Cameraman’s Revenge (1912) tells an amusing story of a beetle couple who are both involved on extramarital affairs with a dragonfly cabaret dancer and another beetle artist.
You won't believe what we have in store for you with the launch of our newest mystery product. What a crazy idea, they thought. It can't be done, they said. But at Lomography, we know that there's a first time for everything. So we've decided to travel back in time and have a quick look at some of the unbelievable ‘firsts’ of photographic history. Could these milestones have anything to do with our mystery product?
If we are to make literal interpretations of parallel universes, they would probably look something like these. Step into our gallery and while you're at it, find out how you can earn piggies and have your own photographs be featured on the Online Shop!
Everything about a person can be read upon the sight of his face -- the squint of eyes, turn of lips or raise of brows immediately paint one's feelings like an open book; but these elements are shrouded in English photographer Toby Harvard's portraiture.
