Yes, lomogoraphy. (Not a typo!) Before the digital photography obsession, a basic auto-exposure 35-mm camera called the Lomo Kompakt Automat created magnificent photos, or shall I say lomos? I was convinced this art form that encourages spontaneity and has nothing to do with Photoshop had faded into oblivion until I stumbled across the work of Gavin Hammond. He’s a lomo genius!
Hammond shoots in low-light settings and creates his own light, unique shadows, and sillouettes. His focus is on framing, composition, and mood. He keeps his Lomo with him and is obsessed with capturing alll the little things in life. We love that,right? Hammond says his biggest inspiration is the urge to create, not consume. Oh yea, he’s also a writer, producer, and musician. We love that, too.
