In the 6th edition of Synesthesia, we share our latest music obsessions, combining them with these stunning photos taken using Lomography products. Tune in to a variety of music genres, including emotional electronic, nostalgic disco, and relaxing jazz, and discover how they can harmonize with these selected photos from the Lomography community.
There has been a growing number of users and support for the 110 film format in the past years. Always dreamy and captivating, the format is so portable you have no excuse not to bring it with you. This photo by @mpscheerer uses Lomography Color Tiger 200 and you can see the lovely saturation and hazy grain that comes with each shot. With these characteristics, music with hazy vocals and dreamy lush guitar playing is what comes to mind.
Seeing this studio portrait using LomoChrome Purple reminded me of the great days of 70s disco. With extravagant fashion, and the freedom to be who you are, this photo by @rachfoto got me excited to put on my dancing shoes and have a dance party. The color shift of the film adds to the playful and fun nature of disco and these three selections will keep you dancing all night long!
Lomographers know that any subject can make a good photo, as is seen here with this photo by @lomoteddy1 and a broken ActionSampler. Seeing this photo reminded me of album covers you could find at your local record store that specialize in genres like shoegaze, indie, math rock, and other similar types of music. The faded photos mixed with the trippy colors work well to create a sense of nostalgia and longing when looking at this picture, which is why I chose songs with long reverbed-out vocals and washed-out instrumentals to accompany this picture.
Lowlight LomoChrome Purple is always a delight to see. The photo by @phototee83 looks like it is straight out of a scene from a cyberpunk/sci-fi-inspired film. With this in mind, I chose songs that heavily use electronic instruments like synths and drum machines but mixed with nostalgic and emotionally charged vocals and samples.
This stunning photograph was captured by @ofchanceandchoice using our newest film, LomoChrome Color '92 ISO 400. The image has a serene and calming vibe, with a cool and gentle color tone that evokes a sense of nostalgia. It reminds me of easy-listening, jazz-inspired music, which perfectly complements the vibrant color palette of the film.
