Got great analogue photos from your childhood? Scan them and share your memories with us!
In psychology, memory is defined as the process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. If you think about it, it’s similar to the photographic process, wherein we encode a moment in time by clicking the camera, store it on film and on print when developed, and retrieve it as needed.
We encode, store, and retrieve memories through photographs. And more often than not, childhood memories are preserved by the bulk more than others. Children are probably the most photographed people in the world.
Do you have childhood photos in a keepsake box somewhere? It’s time to open that box and celebrate those memories. Scan and share them with us.
Tell us the story of your youth by writing an analogue lifestyle piece and including those childhood photos. Find the guidelines on our requested posts here. If you’re not up for writing and you just want to show the world those great analogue shots, join this rumble instead.
And just for fun, perhaps you could change your user photos—-here and elsewhere—-to show everyone how cute you were as a kid.
Let’s take making memories a notch further. Share your photos via Facebook and Twitter and tag them with #MakingMemories and #Lomography hashtags. This will make it easier for us to revisit our memories, and build an archive of those unforgettable moments.
This month is dedicated to #MakingMemories with Lomography. Raid your attic, blow the dust off your photo albums, and share your favorite analogue memories with the world. Scan those photos and upload them to Lomography and your social media accounts, using the tags #MakingMemories and #Lomography. It’s time to celebrate the good old days through the magic of analogue photography!
