We have already made 2000 new friends…
The Lomography Analogue Lounge has made a new home here at photokina 2008 in Cologne, flooded with natural light from the glass roof above. This light streams down onto the 100,000 images which are all over the walls and floors, a 360 degree Lomography experience! The area is buzzing with visitors from all over the world, wondering across what brings them onto the fields of analogue scenes, their smiles spread one to another, charging the air with a vibe that moves the soul; a glut of momentary reflections. Meanwhile Helen and Stephanie have started the first workshops with 50 people, Katja Kubikova von DJ Team Kompott is heating up the air, and break dancers have occupied the south part of the lounge.
But this is just the start…
“Clearly the most colourful spot at the photokina!” – Joachim Nickel, Berlin
“It’s surprising, a fresh coloured drop of oil in a glass of water. The atmosphere of the Lounge, the images, the people, the music is original and amazing.” – Eloy Bernal, Barcelona
“Analogue comes from and goes to the soul.” – Richard Wilson Jones, Manchester
“This is amazing I have never seeing anything like this in my life.” – George Gran, San Francisco
“The people come to the lounge and are a bit confused at first, but then the dynamics start!” – Katja Kubikova
“I think there is a drift towards analogue, as a reaction to the digital world. It is very important that Lomography has this strong place here at the photokina!” – Seung-Woo Chae, Seoul
“Never heard of Lomography. Modern, different, not expensive. I wouldn’t have thought that Analogue makes such cool pictures!” – Tamara Berbic, Heilbronn
“I love the Golden Rules!Deleting images is shit!” – Dagobert Ernst, Düsseldorf
We will soon send more news from the evening lounge with the Vienna Swing Sisters!
