Lomo snapshots add colour to London’s Design Week

19. October 2007

Vienna based International Lomographic Society celebrates Seventh Lomography World Congress in London, 17-23 September 2007 
 

This year’s London Design Week saw the biggest exhibition in Lomographic history: the LomoWorldWall on Trafalgar Square with more than 100.000 snapshots of artists from all over the world.

Lomography is a way of photography that is characterized by over-saturated colours, off-kilter exposure, blurring, and alternative film processing. Probably the most popular Lomographic camera is the so-called Fisheye Camera, which has a built-in wide angle lens and shoots fisheye-distorted photos. There exists a huge worldwide community of people fanatic about lomography and the pictures for the LomoWorldWall were submitted via online competitions or created during one of the numerous events of the International Lomographic Society .

Besides the LomoWorldWall the Lomography World Congress 2007 featured a Lomographic city exploration and numerous workshops by Lomographic experts, concluded by the final bash at a Big Lomo-Boat-Party, where the best snapshots taken during the congress were presented on a LomoLondonWall.

The commercial trademark for products and services related to Lomography is owned by the Austrian company Lomographische AG. The Intertnational Lomographic Society, organizer of the World Congress, is also based in Vienna , Austria .
