Diana World Tour LA: Diana F+ Vignettes from the City of Angels - Call For Entries!

2010-07-29 13

The Diana World Tour to make it’s stop in Los Angeles this October! Be a part of the sensation that is sweeping the globe and submit your Diana F+ Lomographs to be part of our Vignettes from the City of Angels exhibition!


  • UPDATE * UPDATE * UPDATE *

WINNERS ANNOUNCED!!!


The Diana World Tour is coming back stateside on a stop at the Lomography Gallery Store LA!!! We Want You (enthusiastic finger pointing) to submit your best and most favorite Diana F+ Lomographs to be part of our Vignettes exhibition which will be up during the months of October and November!

Rigidly defined, a vignette is a “short, impressionistic scene that focuses on one moment in time or gives a particular insight into a character, idea, or setting”. With merely a few words and a few specific details, it gives one a penetrating view into the life and motivations of your subject.

What we need from you!
Submit no more than 5 of your favorite Lomographs captured with the plastic lens of the Diana F+ inspired by the city of Angels… be it your favorite people, places, and things; or an image that represents how Los Angeles makes you feel and the way of life it promotes. Whether it’s with multiple exposures of your friends at the Cha Cha, soft vignettes at the Farmer’s Market with the hazy smog-ridden sky, or pinholes of the coastline complete with surf and sand, we want to show the world Los Angeles through a plastic lens.

What you get!
We will choose the very best images to display on the walls of the Lomography Gallery Store LA during the Diana World Tour! Hoards of people will come through the shop to see the traveling Dietrich Collection of vintage Diana F+ clones and your analogue masterpieces starting with our Opening Party on Thursday, October 14. Winners will also get 20 piggy points to be used online or in the store, and will walk away with their large custom print at the end of the exhibition!

How to submit?
Upload no more than 5 of your favorite Lomographs to this post. You may also send us your images in a zipped file via YouSendIt.com addressed to shopla@lomography.com. Please put “LA VIGNETTES” as the subject line, and label all files and the zip with your name, and LomoHome username if you have one. Please size all images to 3,000 × 3,000 pixels, 300 dpi, JPEG 10. Your file size should be no bigger than 3 MB. If you do not have a scan of this size, you may send us your negative and we will scan it for you. If you do not have a scan large enough, or your negative, we unfortunately cannot accept your image for the exhibition.

If you want to barrow a Diana F+ to shoot for this contest, come on by and ask nicely. Compliments on hair or dress will help. We will probably say yes.

DEADLINE
The competition ends Wednesday, August 18, 2010. Winners will be announced by Wednesday, August 25, 2010.

    Trending LomoKino Movies of 2015

    Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires an extra effort. For it to be coherent, one must stay focused throughout the entire process - from planning the story, shooting the scenes, to editing the clips. We'd like to commend these lomographers for taking an extra step to keep the spirit of analog movie making alive!

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

    A Color Remix

    It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
