Lubitel Love From Waist Level Chapter 43: Lomography and Visual Culture

The social and visual credo of Lomography has influenced lots of different people – from cultural gurus and creative types to business people, educators, and other professionals.

Among these strident supporters and Lomographic camera shooters are quite a few celebrities and well-known creative types, such as Moby, David Byrne, LCD Soundsystem, Vladimir Putin, Master Yuen, Underworld, Giovanni Ribisi, Nobuyoshi Araki, Eason Chan (The King of Canton Pop), Franz Ferdinand, Dalek, Eve, Anton Corbijn, Daft Punk, Danny Clinch, Nikki Sixx, Staple Design, Rosie O’Donnell, Kareem Black, The Cold War Kids, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Yonehara Yasumasa, Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, John Vanderslice, Mark Romanek, Jason Lee, Shepard Fairey, Kirsten Dunst, The White Stripes, Kozyndan, Eva Mendes, Bady Minck, the Leningrad Cowboys, and Meatloaf. So you’re in good company!

The Lomographic credo – “be fast, be open-minded, be communicative” – has spread into an approach that is shared throughout the Lomographic network. This special premise is based on the playful combination of lo-tech and hi-creativity, and the amalgamation of a cultural institution with a commercial photographic and design company. This grants our Lomographic Society an exquisite role in this age of borderless global tele-communications wherever images and visual language are involved.
