Sunday, June 5, 2005, from 7 pm.
Russian Cultural Centre A'dam, Salon USSR and East Area present:
LOMO-party "The show must go on!"An interactive exhibtion of unique photographs made with the legendary LOMO snapshot camera from St. Petersburg. Take your own LOMO photo's ("lomographs") with you: the best will be added to the exhibition.
Sometimes a blurry shot is just blurry, but other times it is pure and absolutely brilliant!
Bad News! The original and one-and-only Lomo LC-A camera has been taken out of production. Some of the most beautiful items ever created (the original VW bug, Constellation, Tupolev, Concorde and Illushin airplanes, Polaroid SX-70's, Olivetti typewriters, Lambretta scooters, Commodore 64 computers, Wacker Innsbruck, etc.) have disappeared despite the enormous love and respect that they command. According to the LC-A's Russian factory (LOMO PLC), the LC-A has proven to be too expensive to continue its production. Engineers and craftsmen experienced in 35mm cameras are a dying breed. Wages and energy costs have skyrocketed. BUT THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
