We’re sorry we have been a little quiet on here recently… we’ve been feeling a little uninspired… but the UK weather is hopefully starting to turn and we are ready to PARTY!!!!!
We’ve been chatting to the lovely Liana from Lomography Gallery store Soho and decided to have a little party to celebrate a number of things (see below), but we would also like to meet the people behind lomolovers… all of you who have contributed and been involved and hopefully have a good old chat and be inspired to make this years set of books!!
If you love all things analogue then load up your favourite film camera and join us as we celebrate the joys of this medium. There will be competitions, prizes, music, drinks and a whole lot more. Lomography are launching the first ever Film Photography day and the best way to celebrate this is with a huge party! This is the perfect opportunity to meet up with fellow fanatics from all over the UK to share your fascination with all things film.
The first 30 guests who bring a friend will get a £5 Lomography voucher! There will be the usual mix of drinks and music AND you can have your photo taken with the Belair 6-12 camera.
If that wasn’t enough there will be competitions, raffles and the chance to have a go on our brand new Smartphone Film Scanner, so bring along your 35 mm negatives and have a go yourself.
All this takes place on Friday April 12th from 6-9pm and is absolutely FREE!
A little while back we asked for people to contribute to our blog, as after all we like to think we are more of a community at lomo lovers as without you we would have nothing to show!
So the lovely Elisa got in contact with us and wanted to share a little project she has been working on….
For the love of Lomography
Elisa had just featured a compilation of lomographs in her current project ‘Marketplace’. She invited nine other lomographers to go to traditional markets in Jakarta and capture the atmosphere and items unique to individual locations with various Lomography cameras. The ten succeed in presenting a sense of nostalgia through the lomographs, creating an alluring marriage between dramatic camera effects and the environments of the markets. They were recently published on online publication Whiteboard Journal, here’s the link to the full article: http://whiteboardjournal.com/features/focus/marketplace.html
Markets are recognized as a place of public gatherings, where buyers and sellers meet for trade, a place not only restrained for its commodities and services but a social setting where livelihood and interaction occur. Markets, in this context, traditional markets found in big cities as Jakarta are known as a knowledgeable witness where culture and identity is formed. As part of our internship programme, the following feature by Elisa Kuswari takes you to visually appreciate 10 traditional markets of Jakarta that captures the vibrant characters through the eyes of 10 selected lomographers. We present to you a nostalgic piece entitled Marketplace: Heritage & Identity.
