11 and 17 February 2011

Took portraits of participants coming from indigenous communities in the provinces of Davao during the opening ceremonies of the 3rd International Rondalla Festival. Doubled the shots during the picnic-by-the-beach treat courtesy of the mayor and his wife before the closing day of the plucked string music festival. Despite having a drizzly day by the beach and the sun not smiling at all, we all had fun specially the foreign participants seeing the beach and savoring fresh sea foods.

We’re fizzing with excitement to introduce our latest Kickstarter project: the Lomo’Instant Square. We’re talking about the world’s first analogue camera to produce square-format Instax pictures. It features a 95mm glass lens for super sharp photos, an advanced automatic mode that takes care of exposure, all of Lomography’s signature creative features — and a compact, foldable design. The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
