Lomography Russia invites you to the photo exhibition on the topic “Simple Things” in St. Petersburg. Not only will every lottery ticket contribute to a charity project, you can also win a Fisheye 2 camera, listen to the lomography lecture and see the photographic / lomographic work from Pavel Aglish and Anna Chernysh.

“This exhibition is our response to the problems of children with disabilities. We sincerely wish that they could become active participants in life, that for many healthy people just became routine."

“Simple Things” is an exhibition of two young photographers that will take place on 23th of January in The library in Kirov Islands (Saint-Petersburg, Russia). It will include two works: digital photographs by Pavel Aglish and lomographs by Anna Chernysh both shooting things from unusual angles and moments of emotions.
