Lomography – back to basics

Lomo cameras get a strong following in a counter-revolution to digital

Words Ben Morgan

Now, I feel ashamed to admit it, but I’ve only just come across the LOMO camera. I vaguely recall these ingenious devices experiencing a resurgence a few years back, but I hadn’t realised the following they’d garnered.

Lomographic pictures are described by The Lomographic Society (see what I mean about a following) as “moment-catchers; characterized by vibrant colours, shadowy framing, surprise effects and spontaneity”.’

The Lomographic Society boasts over 1 million members who get out and about snapping with everything from ‘fisheye’ cameras to the new Spinner 360˚ – which captures ‘unlimited panoramas’.

Essentially, these lo-tech cameras can create sometimes-blurred, sometimes overexposed and colourful images on 35mm film.  The result is never the same and the process is extremely analogue (does it worry anyone else that the next generation probably won’t even know what ‘analogue’ means?).

Starting with the Lomo LC-A – a Russian-made film camera – Lomography (the company who now sells the Lomo cameras), has since added a range of cameras and quirky accessories to help “document the incredible planet around us”.

In an age of digital photography, this is a counter-revolution we could get used to.
