Introduction to Lomography presented by Lomography
Saturday, June 23, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
Join us at Photoville, NYC (www.photovillenyc.org) for Lomography's "Introduction to Lomography" workshop!
We’ll explain how the history and philosophy of Lomography. Afterwards, try out a Lomography camera for yourself as we take a photowalk around the park. Lender cameras and one free roll of of film included!
What started out spontaneously as an artistic approach to photography in the Vienna underground scene developed into Lomography becoming an international socio-cultural movement using photography as a creative approach to communicating, absorb and capturing the world. Today we are a globally active organization dedicated to experimental and creative visual expression, a playful combination of lo-tech and hi-tech and the amalgamation of a cultural institution with a commercial photographic and design company focusing entirely on the unique imagery, style and approach of analogue photography and its further development.
Photoville (photovillenyc.org) is a new Brooklyn-based photo destination - a veritable village of freight containers transformed into temporary exhibition spaces, taking place this summer from June 22 to July 1, 2012.
Photoville will feature a feisty mix of exhibitions, lectures, hands-on workshops, nighttime projections, a photo dog run, a camera greenhouse, and a summer beer-garden with food trucks that will create a photography destination like no other.
