Photography Lomography

Tonight the Lomography company is opening a new gallery and store in the Big Apple. The party will include a live performance by A Hawk and A Hacksaw, plus food and drink and other Lomographic goodies.

The Lomography Gallery Store features the largest LomoWall in North America; made o of 35,000 hand-picked lomographs.

In addition, the store will offer events, parties, and exhibitions, including a stop by the Diana World Tour in November 2009 where hundreds of classic Diana cameras from the 60s & 70s will be on display.
Their photo technique is inspired by the "charmed unique, colorful, and sometimes blurry" images that the camera produced.

Lomography emphasizes casual, snapshot photography. Characteristics such as over-saturated colors, blurring, and alternative film processing are often considered part of the "Lomographic technique."

i <3 lomo. too bad i had to work!! i have several lomo cameras and i intend to get more. there is something really special about the images you create with lomo cameras.

i have a series of photos i took in texas, california and mexico with my lomo; over my desk. everyone is always intrigued and want to know more about the camera and development method used . the answer is pretty simple, i use a lomo and when i take it to get developed (at cvs!) i ask for matte or semi-gloss paper.

the end!
