About

It seems like only yesterday the LC-A made its first little shots outside the LOMO PLC factory in St. Petersburg and now we're celebrating its 25th birthday! Here, you will find out everything you need to participate in all the birthday parties, Lomographic exhibitions, online competitions and other projects we’ve got planned this year in honour of the little analogue camera where Lomography began!

All your fabulous submissions to these projects, be they pucker photo uploads, peachy postcards or tantalizing tales, will find their way into our special LC-A 25th anniversary touring exhibition which will culminate in a grand slam final event!

    Reminiscent of traveling photographers of the 19th century, Giles Clement tours through the country with his assistant, Zeiss (an Irish Terrier), offering everything from portrait sessions to wildly creative photographic projects for magazines and companies. And although his mode of transportation may have evolved with the times, his photographic method and gear have changed very little compared to the photographers of days past. Now, with over 3 years of tintyping experience under his belt and an impressive list of clients, he's carved a name out for himself as an accomplished tintyper and continues to spread his passion for this ages-old technique everywhere he goes.
