About Lomography

The Austrian-based brand Lomography has since 1991 created a positive, thriving community around analog photography and creative processes. In recent years they have even established The Lomo School for Photography – The Ultimate Guide to All Things Analogue – where professionals and newbies can get inspiration for their particular level of creativity and skill. 

“We’ve provided information about all the exciting experimental techniques that have been inspiring the imagination of Lomographers far and wide over the past 30 years. Users can learn how to shoot mesmerizing multiple exposures, uncover handy tips and tricks like mastering the pinhole, and read detailed explanations (that they understand) about what the hell pushing and pulling mean, and so much more.”

Fang din by 2023

“Fang din by” (Capture your city) is back! 

The Danish Architecture Center is collaborating again with Copenhagen Photo Festival for their photo contest open to everyone with a camera or a phone. Do not miss your chance to participate! 

 

Fang din by (Capture Your City), 2023 edition

This year’s theme is “No Filter”. You can of course use a filter or edit your image but the idea is to capture the purest aspect of your city. What does the city look like if you strip away the sunshine and sunsets? If we look at the city through honest eyes - what other types of motifs crop up? The challenge is to avoid picturesque shots and capture the beauty of the raw, the unpolished, the abandoned in your city. 

The best photos will be exhibited on the Bryghuspladsen square outside the Danish Architecture Center, as well as in other cities. 3 winners will be designated by the jury formed by Maja Dyrehauge Gregersen, Copenhagen Photo Festival director; Emile Hertling Péronard, film producer; Marie Hald, photographer; Mia Heil Rasmussen, head of Marketing and Communication DAC and Tanja Zhigalova; winner of last year’s edition. 

 

How to participate?

You want to participate? Use the #DACfangdinby2023 on Instagram or send your photo with your contact information to fangdinby@dac.dkl with “Fang din by 2023 – hovedkonkurrence” in the subject line. You have until May 1st 2023 to participate, so grab your camera and explore your city with a “No Filter” perspective!
