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.

Vivid, surreal, unique, and retro are just some words to describe lomography. Deemphasizing formal technique with the motto "don't think, just shoot" leads to spontaneous moments captured in a rainbow of colors and a wide range of styles.

Here, I've put together some beautiful and colorful examples of lomo photography. I hope they inspire you as much as they do me.
