Malaysia is home to many Lomographers old and new. As such, countless encounters between Lomographers, film swaps, Homes of the Day, and even a touching Lomography documentary called The Negative Effect have come out of Malaysia. Clearly the passion for the analogue lifestyle is rife in Tanah Melayu.

Throughout the month of October we will be visiting different states in Malaysia in our “Let’s Go” Malaysia newsletter series*.
