Keynote Due to popular demand, Booth-Clibborn Editions is reprinting its highly successful official book on the image-making phenomenon, Lomography. Sales Points - The only guide to this revolutionary photographic medium - Features an amazing array of images, selected from 200,000 photographs taken by Lomo enthusiasts around the globe. - Compiled by Fabian Monheim, well-known graphic designer and Lomo Ambassador - The images form an unprecedented record of people's lives in every part of the world Description The Lomo camera, an icon of mid-20th century Russian design, is perceived as unable to take a bad picture, due to the unique glass lens and capability for handling low-light levels. This antidote to all things digital and slick has found a vast international following of people who use it to document every aspect of their lives. It has spawned fan clubs and competitions the world over, culminating in the 2001 final in Cuba. Lomo: Don't Think Just Shoot! features many images by keen Lomographers, alongside facts, figures, anecdotes and ravings. This lively book charts the visual language, history and lifestyles of a unique cult: an extraordinary camera and its global audience. Editor/Designer Fabian Monheim is a graphic designer and Lomo enthusiast. He initiated the UK Lomographic movement and is a curator of the London Lomo Gallery. He is co-founder of Fly Productions, a studio that has created exhibitions for the British Council and the Barbican Gallery, London; restaurant and club interiors in London, Tokyo and Hiroshima; spreads for Time Out and Dazed & Confused magazines and projects for clients including Issey Miyake, Yves Saint Laurent and Cartier.
