The LC-A 25th Anniversary Postcard Project

31

Time sure flies by fast since the beautiful, timeless LOMO LC-A camerasurfaced over in Russia and changed how the world sees analogue photography today. Along with it are some things that continue to exist because of their very personal, down-to-earth appeal. With this, we welcome you to get your creative groove on and do a mash-up of your favourite LC-A shots with another analogue wonder – postcards!

Time sure flies by fast since the beautiful, timeless LOMO LC-A camera surfaced over in Russia and changed how the world sees analogue photography today. Along with it are some things that continue to exist because of their very personal, down-to-earth appeal. With this, we welcome you to get your creative groove on and do a mash-up of your favourite LC-A shots with another analogue wonder – postcards!

To further heighten the analogue lifestyle all of us Lomographers embark on, we are launching the LC-A 25th Anniversary Postcard Project – and no, we’re not talking e-cards or electronic versions of that beloved 3.5×5 or 4×6 incher. How are we going about this very special project, you say? With your best LC-A and LC-A+ shots (and your creative output), of course!

1. Browse through your LomoArchive or see the world with your LC-A or LC-A+’s f/2.8 Minitar lensed eye and create physical prints of your shots via your trusty desk printer or film developing print shop.

2. Show your utmost creativity with your postcard – brand it with your personal piece of art by drawing/illustrating it, sticking, cutting it creatively and whatnot – possibilities are endless with analogue! Put on your elaborate messages and innermost thoughts on both the front and back side of your anniversary postcard.

3. Send your LC-A/LC-A+ 25th Anniversary Postcards via snail mail ONLY at this address:

Lomographic Society International
Hollergasse 41
A 1150 Vienna Austria
attn: postcard project

4. No envelopes, please! It is a postcard project, after all :)

A select jury from the LomoStaff selects the most creative, mind blowing postcards from the lot. Winners will get fantastic surprises and will have the opportunity to be displayed on select exhibits in celebration of the LC-A's 25th Anniversary!

All your fabulous submissions to the anniversary projects, be they pucker photo uploads, peachy postcards or tantalizing tales, will find their way into our special LC-A 25th anniversary touring exhibition which will culminate in a grand slam final event!

    It would be great to have a gallery with the postcards that have reached your office.
    I am going to send my postcard next week. And I am afraid of pilferers at the post offices. So I would be relieved to know that my postcard arrived safely when it is the case.

    Giles Clement: The Wayfaring Tintyper

    Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
