The Lomograph

Audrey Grey, contributor to PictureBusiness magazine, created an article about how the Lomographic Society is keeping the breath of life in artistic film photography and process. The following is an excerpt from the article, as printed in the June 2009 release.

The craze started among feather-weight belly shirts, distressed denim minis and gift books like "The Big O." Prominently displayed there in the windows of Urban Outfitters stores nationwide was a selection of vintage-looking plastic "toy" film cameras which could produce artsy, light-streaked prints.

The Diana, the Holga, and the Lomo LCA+, along with various pinhole camera kits and mini-Leicas, have been huge sellers for the clothing chain which caters primarily to the under-30 crowd. Now, The Lomography Society, the Vienna-based manufacturer responsible for the resurgence of many of these hipster-adopted film cams is trying its own hand at direct retail in the U.S.

Early in 2009, on a tony lane in Greenwich Village, the Lomography Gallery Store opened its doors to a throng of young enthusiasts who'd become familiar with "lomo" cameras and shooting techniques through Urban Outfitters and an impressive viral marketing campaign.

Though a full retail environment, the Lomography Gallery Store also offers seminars, film processing, parties, photo walks, camera loan programs and a space for customer exhibits. We asked store manager Nicole Bogatitus to tell us about what's developed in the first 100 days...

PB: We're fascinated by one of Lomography's tag lines: "The Future is Analog." Can you tell us about the rebirth of interest in film cameras and techniques in the U.S.?

NB: Film still has warmth and depth to it that digital has not yet been able to duplicate. There are many that are still fiercely loyal to film and will not go digital, as they realize that digital is not a replacement for film but simply an alternative. There's also the spontaneity that shooting with film allows you; with film you don't know what result you are going to get until you get your film back. It seems there is a whole generation that has grown up with the completely digital lifestyle and film is something that is entirely new and exciting to them.

PB: We've heard tell of a "Lomo Wall" featuring 35,000 hand-mounted photographs. True story? What other design elements are you planning for the show room?

NB: We have a three-story tall structure in the rear of our store which has affectionately been dubbed "the tower". It is plastered with the LomoWall, which has the 35,000 photos you mentioned. These photographs were culled from an online submission where we called for New York photographs, so they are from Lomographers all around the globe. We also have in the works Gallery showings, so we will have removable gallery panels where we will have Lomography exhibitions. []

Just for fun, try running the term "lomo" into a search engine to see distinctly lomo images. Or view more at www.lomography.com
