This summer we've teamed up with the wonderful, legendary Strand Bookstore for a very special series of LomoWalks throught the summer. New York City is an inspiring place for writers and photographers alike. So we thought we might as well combine these two forms of art and find out what people will create when the written word is supposed to inspire your creative eye.
For our upcoming Strand Book X LomoWalk, we are thrilled to have the author of the blog and novel Vanishing New York on board to provide some inspiring written quotes for the participants. In addition to that, Jeremiah Moss took one of our Simple Use Film Cameras out for a journey through the city beforehand.
Whoever is familiar with Jeremiah's work, will have a similar feeling of curiosity, as we had, when we gave him the camera. Moss knows this city like the back of his hand and has been studying its changes and gentrification closely for more than a decade. What does he capture in the streets of this city that, according to his novel's subtitle, lost its soul? How does he express his feelings towards New York City with pictures instead of words for a change?
Here is a little sneak peek:
Come join us and Jeremiah for our second Strand Book X LomoWalk on Saturday, July 14th and see the author's complete photo series taken with our Simple Use Film Camera.
