Multi Exposure Lomography (13 photos)

This picture above is taken by Jeansman….using a type of lomography that focuses on multi exposure. The film is used twice and sometimes even more often than that. In some collaboration projects, one photograph is composed out of three images from three different photographers. This results into surprising compositions.

Lomography started out when two students one day decided to use a Russian camera called the Lomo Kompakt Automat. With it they made a series of experimental unusual looking snapshots. In other words..snapshots in an unorthodox way. It became widely popular very quickly and lomography was born.

Nowadays, different things like panoramic and fish-eye lenses are used. There’s a collection of materials that are widely used for Lomography. They are all available on the website.

Lomography does have some rules…A set of ten to be exact.

At the very base of this lie the 10 golden rules that define our philosophy and approach towards photography. Memorise them, recite them by heart, or break all the rules; whichever way, be ready to throw all your inhibitions about photography to the wind.

1. Take your camera everywhere you go
2. Use it any time – day and night
3. Lomography is not an interference in your life, but part of it
4. Try the shot from the hip
5. Approach the objects of your lomographic desire as close as possible
6. Don't think (william firebrace)
7. Be fast
8. You don't have to know beforehand what you captured on film
9. Afterwards either
10. Don't worry about any rules

If only it were really as easy as it sounds…
Even looking at a picture is not as easy. The images are layered and transparent. I had to look at some of them very closely to figure out what I was really seeing (apart from the main composition).

Liberating Portraits of Ballerinas Elegantly Dancing in the Streets of Cairo

Like many dance photographers, Mohamed Taher has a knack for beautifully capturing the body in motion. His interest in movement is evident in his Ballerinas of Cairo series, and the captivating collection of photos also serves a more poignant purpose: it helps women fight sexual harassment and reclaim the city’s streets. After learning about the Ballerina Project, an ongoing series that documents dancers in urban settings across the globe, Taher was inspired to carry out a similar undertaking in the Egyptian capital.
