Lomography, or Lomo in short, what is it? Simply put, it is a form of photography where you take pictures without looking through the view finder; not from eye-level but more from waist level; non-intrutive; more fun; more special, using a Soviet/Russian-made toy camera - a Lomo camera. The cost of a Lomo camera varies, it can be as cheap as less than SGD$100, to around SGD$1000. Lomo brings more fun to photography, anyone can do it; and you can do it anywhere, anytime, it is part of your life.

More information about Lomography and Lomography cameras can be found at the official Lomography website:

There is rising interest in Lomo from Asia, especially Hong Kong, Japan & Singapore.

Below is a BBC documentary on Lomography. It is interesting to know the current President of Russia, Mr Putin, actually had a hand in helping Lomo to survive the difficult years after the collapse of Soviet Union.
