In the early 1990s, two students in Austria gave a whole new dimension to photography. Russian made Lomo Kompakt Automat was the camera that started what is known today as Lomography.
Those students had the idea to take photos from the hip. Take mindless shots (usually) without even looking into the viewfinder.
The idea was just crazy enough to work… and it worked magnificently.
Vibrant high contrast high color images received awes of everyone.
Today Lomography is a brand with a cult like following. Lomography is still done on analog cameras and requires no special photography techniques at all, and that’s why this post does not include any photography tips. Now let’s have a look at some Lomographs.
