Real Life Beauty LomoWall Competition

26

Contribute to the biggest Lomography exhibition Chile has seen so far! We will show “Real Life Beauty” in form of a huge LomoWall on the National Day of Photography in August.

Lomography Chile invites all lomographers worldwide to help us building our biggest LomoWall (almost 88.5 ft!) so far. It will be part of the “National Day of Photography” organized by C.N.C.A. and exhibited for one whole month! Join us in this project and let’s show the world that analogue photography it’s more alive than ever:

Real Life Beauty
Everyone sees the world in a different way depending on the environment where they move. Everyone identifies themselves with certain places, things, people, moments, textures… To us, the analogue lovers, film is the most meaningful way to absorb everything around us, the way we capture real beauty in things that no one expects to be pretty. It’s our battle flag, we defend analogue photography with teeth and nails because it’s our ceremony, a process fulfilled with charm that allows us to bring some magic into our lives. We love waiting at the lab, choosing one film instead of another and watching these “printed moments” that will surely last forever. We don’t care about the “rules”, we take pictures with the consciousness implied in looking twice and based on the school of experience. We love our Lomographic cameras as much as we love the ones we buy at a flea market because each of them becomes an extension of our eyes, a full time partner that allows us to capture the Real Life Beauty that surrounds us – and all the things that we love to frame – to have a living memory of our own world: those special LomoLocations, our friends & family, the road to work, the beach house, textures, smells, light, everything that is part of our real life.
Show us your interpretation of the prophecy “Lomography will bring back overtones, nuances, smells, shades, dirt & dust and real life beauty to you”.

    @ dreamzeequence: no, it's not related to the make your prophecy rumble, it's related content-wise to one of our prophecies, but for a LomoWall exhibition in Chile!

    The Art of Picture Taking: An Interview with Filmmaker Catherine Dauphin

    At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."

    Sohvi Viik – What Is Real Is Imagined

    Ever since photography has been invented in the early 19th century, people had themselves being photographed. However, in times of smartphone cameras, selfies and social media, recording our daily life in pictures has become a Leitmotiv, a metaphor for a restless society. In her latest solo exhibition, Estonian fine art photographer Sohvi Viik questions the necessity of modern photography.

Unlike the fashion industry, the trends for fashion photography do not change as frequently as the season showcases.

    Lomo In-Depth: The Defining Role of Women Photographers in Art History

    It is general knowledge that history—ruled and written by austere patriarchy—has not been so kind to women. Photography is one of the rare exceptions; womankind has set its pervading presence and participation in photography since the birth of the camera in the 1800's. Lomography traces the role of women in photography with a special, comprehensive summary for International Women's Day.
