I never really got over the consumerism that took over Lomography in the past five or so years. Just a few minutes ago, I browsed through the Lomo site and nearly wept because they revamped the style completely. It isn’t rough around the edges anymore and it feels more like a site that’s trying to sell you everything. Thank God for the shop and how it managed to retain the old site format. I feel like even that’s about to change soon. I’ll miss the cart and the little logo man-head.
I’m a proud Lomo Baby. I grew up in technicolor ’cause of it. It’s been a cool 6 years I think? 6 years since Tito At’s show and the arrival of the LC-A for Christmas. I hope I can scan all my negs soon. There’s so much to dig up!
There are haters out there and even posers. Everyone’s out to smash the Lomo. makes me kinda sad. I remember how it felt to take fun pictures.
I remember growing up with Lomo. As soon as I find my negs and have them all scanned, I’ll know what to say. In the meantime, keep analogue alive and spread the Lomolove!
