Lomography is analogue photography. It is the new way of expressing yourself through film photography. Lomography's plastic cameras leak light and need film, making them a digital photographer's worst nightmare, but a dream for those who want change. Half the fun is not having a clue what the photographs will really look like until you peel open the envelope to reveal your vibrant and expressive Lomo pictures. "Lomography" details the history of the Lomography Society and it explains the minimal technical knowledge you need to achieve these experimental pictures. With a diverse range of photographs from portraits to pets, and from action shots to architecture, this shows the world captured by Lomographers from around the globe. The pictures are divided into themes and under each image there is a caption detailing what method the photographer used to capture the photograph. All the photographs in this book are from Lomo fans so it proves that anyone can do it! Lomography has been around since the early 1990s. It began when two students in Austria stumbled on the Lomo Kompakt Automat and started taking shots with it from the hip, sometimes looking through the viewfinder. This ignited a new style of artistic photography that we now know as Lomography. Lomography is now a global community and there is a dedicated website where Lomographers across the globe can share their Lomo shots.
