Evolution of the Lomo LC-A to the LC-M, LC-A+, LC-Wide and now the LC-A 120

The lomo LC-A was introduced to the Soviet Union in 1984 as a camera for the people. The idea was to design a camera that anyone could use, lomo took inspiration from the Japanese Cosina CX-2 and toned down the Japanese design with some communist magic. The LC-A was the camera that changed the way I thought about photography as it gave me a lot of creative freedom, the fact I could take it anywhere and that it could be used in low light was a game changer at the time. It seems funny now but when I got my LC-A in 1998 there was not much to choose from if you wanted a half decent camera that could fit in your jean pocket. Compared with the proliferation of camera phones now it seems quite bizarre, compact digital cameras did not exist and they did not become affordable until 2003.

Interviewed by the BBC about 20 years of Lomography

I have been interviewed by the BBC’s online magazine for an article that coincides with the 20th anniversary of Lomography. It’s quite nice to see that another Brighton photographer, Toby Mason, has also been interviewed for the piece; Brighton represent! The article was written by Stephen Dowling, the same journalist that interviewed me on the subject of Instagram in April this year. You can read the BBC’s Lomography article here and I thought it would be nice to post my responses to Stephen’s questions in full in case you’re curious to read more.
