Lomography

Lomography is a new approach to analogue photography. The Lomo L-CA was a camera produced in St. Petersburg, Russia. Using slow 100 ISO film and a unique lens and exposure method, the Lomo camera produces deep vibrant colours and often unpredictable results.

The term is now used in a wider sense as a kind of photographical fashion statement.

Lomography emphasizes a casual 'shoot from the hip' attitude. Never mind when a picture is out of focus or the framing is odd. Shoot first, judge later. Results are often quasi abstract. Other use the technique to document everyday life, not by a well composed picture, taken at exactly the right moment, but rather by producing a series of undirected pictures that together tell a story. Lots of web sites are dedicated to this art form[?].
