30+ Beautiful and Colorful Examples of Lomo Photography


You’ve got to love an artistic movement that’s all about happy accidents. In fact, what some consider mistakes, like over-saturated colors and exposure defects are what makes lomography so special. Born in the early ’90s by a group of Viennese students who discovered the Lomo Kompakt Automat camera while on vacation in Prague, lomography has grown into an international movement that uses photography as a creative and cool way to capture the world.
