Lomography is a style of pop photography using film cameras produced by Russian manufacturer, LOMO. Known for quirks such as light leaks and volatility, vignetting and plastic lenses, Lomo cameras create a range of unique and unpredictable photographic effects. It is these quirks that make the Lomo such an intriguing tool for artists to work with.
In this Members Art Class, inspired by the NGV Festival of Photography, learn the basics of Lomography over a glass of wine with Melbourne artist, Mel Dixon.
Bring your own Lomo camera, or try one of ours. No experience necessary.
