    It is said that one should not judge a book by it's cover, but in this case, the camera that was staring at me was too beautiful to assume the contrary. It was because of Rob Ryan's Fisheye design, that I am eternally addicted to Lomography.

    It was the fall of 2003 when I saw a shopping guide in the National Post (a Canadian newspaper) – it was the typical pre-Christmas list of cool things to buy for the person who has everything.

    Back in summer 2004, I was surfing on the internet when I discovered a site making a review about the book "Mes Vacances avec Holga" (My Holidays with Holga) by Fréderic Lebain and I the pictures I saw .... Waow, I was breathless, and wondered what kind of camera could produce such images... I discovered that these amazing shots were made with this cheap plastic camera named "Holga" (and realized that "Holga" wasn't the girlfriend of F. Lebain he spent his holidays with...).

    Two lomo enthusiasts, who felt bored after shooting each other, decided to look for new friends. They hunted around for a local lomo community but to no avail. To satisfy their insatiable hunger for excitement, it was apparent they had to do something about it. Nine days later, on the 27th October 2006, Lomotion Singapore was born. Within months, more and more kids were added to the happy family. They all share the same aim of spreading the love for lomography.

    This is the story on how I got my first Lomography camera...It all started with a knock on the door. It was the postman with a parcel for me. From the stamps and packaging I knew it was from my brother who lives in Taiwan...

    I saw a Lomowall at the Esplanade about 8 years and was intrigued but never took the plunge - until recently.

    Back when I was a social networking addict, I was always in search of new ways to edit my self-portraits; hoping it would spice up my 3.2 megapixel pictures. One day while scouring the Internet for tutorials, I stumbled across a Photoshop Action titled "lomography". The writer had a before-and-after comparison of a normal photograph and the lomo version of that same picture. The outcome, although digitally manipulated, piqued my interest enough to google more on lomography.

    Jerry Garcia once Said "As I look back on it all now, I realize what a long strange trip it's been." Well, my road to Lomography has also been one of those "Happy Accidents" filled long strange trips.

    My Lomo Story

    My friendship with Lomography was a very logical step in my life. It could have started earlier, but luckily it began just in time. All my life I was very interested in old stuff. Old pictures in my grandparents' album interested me more than new technologies with the digital photography ahead. After school I joined Vilnius University, to take my Bachelor's Degree in Archival Science, when one day, we had a trip to the audiovisual archive of Lithuania. I was so touched with all these old photos - they made a deep impression that I decided to try to do some "retro" pictures by myself.

    I have always been interested in photography, ever since I can remember I've had some sort of camera with me. When I was growing up, it was a Kodak instamatic. A point and shoot with a 125 film cartridge. I loved the idea that i could actually keep a moment in time frozen , bring that moment to the developer down the street and then actually see that moment a week later when my films got back to me.

    My Lomo story started roughly around 3 years ago. Believe it or not, I do not have any photos at all to show before my Lomo life. Not one.

    I think I had a friend in school that first showed me some lomographic camera on a website. I first did not show any interest but later I found the official lomographic website and that was when I first entered the enormous, warm and analogue world of these unpredictable, oddly shaped cameras. Sitting in school and studying half the time, wandering through the website the other half. There were so many pictures to look at, so much to read about these eye opening lenses. Lomography gave me this great feeling. To see the world as something great, discovering all the interesting details and documenting, documenting and documenting. Always having your camera with you, looking for shootable things. The next step would be very natural: buying these tools of living.

    “It all started in a beautiful winter morning with the sun shining and snow...”, wait! That’s the way the horror novel I’m planning to write someday is going to begin! Actually my lomo story began in a casual Summer afternoon with an overcast sky! I went to a friend’s store for lunch (Quintal Bioshop) and I found there a Holga exhibition made by a friend of hers. The pictures caught my eyes and I was completely awestruck by them. She explained to me what kind of camera was used to make those pictures and she told me of the existence of the lomographic embassy. Still thinking on those marvelous pictures I went out of the store and went to a cash machine and I saw the Lomoférias sign (Lomoférias 2008), and decided to give it a try, so I went to the embassy and bought my first lomo… a fisheye 2!

    I had been enthroned in the Lomography sphere thanks to "nanuth":http://www.lomohomes.com/nanuth; actually she’s like my master but I didn’t realize that at the beginning… I was like a young Jedi who’s has not reach yet the wisdom of master Yoda !! When I first saw nanuth spending hours on the website of Lomography I was thinking ‘pffff she’s just a geek on an another stupid website’ then she received her Fisheye camera, took her first pictures and I told myself : ‘Wooaw these pics are crazy, this camera is like a toy and this Lomography stuff is like a confidential thing

    The year was ’07, I was in San Fran, and visiting the college I wanted to go to. While wondering the streets, my brother saw a comic museum he was interested in. We went inside and paid for him to get into the museum area. While waiting for him, I wondered around in the gift shop area.

    I discovered Lomography on a tiny article at the last page of a magazine, it had a really tiny picture of a Supersampler (I think it was a yellow one) but no sample picture, that plastic camera with four lens really catch my eye and I remember thinking “that’s awkward, a camera with four lens for 50€, I should get one for me” but time passed by and I forgot that tiny plastic wonder.
