So, just who and what is LOMOGRAPHY? Here’s the scoop!
From Lomography: Established in Vienna in 1992, The Lomographic Society International is a globally-active organization dedicated to analogue, experimental, and creative photography.
In 1991, two students in Vienna, Austria stumbled upon a compact-sized Russian camera called the LomoKompakt Automat (LC-A). Its trademark vignette shadowing, light-leaks, and saturated colors attracted a cult following. Over time, the Lomography community has exploded and now has followers across the globe! Since then, Lomography has continued to produce fun and experimental products to keep creative analogue photography available and accessible to everyone!
Now, Lomography has an ever-expanding range of films including 35 mm, 120 and 110 formats across color negative, slide, redscale and black & white.
