LomoManila's LoFi #3

LomoManila's LoFi #3

The Philippines has a much more active Lomo community than one would expect for a developing country, and one reason why this is so is because of the efforts of Lomomanila to popularize the art.

Lomomanila started out in 2003 as a mailing list of Lomo enthusiasts and has grown by leaps and bounds in membership and activity in the six years it’s been around. They organize contests and exhibits, take photowalks, trade gear and film, share information and technique, and party like there’s no tomorrow.

They also come out with a semi-regular online magazine called LoFi.  

Here is the cover of LoFi #3, which came out last year. It’s a special on sensual lomography, and features some well-crafted ethereal photos and interesting essays. There’s a bit of nudity so you might want to view this when your boss isn’t hovering about. For mature audiences. It’s available for download as a pdf, but you’ll have to sign up on Lomomanila.ph first.  Once in, you can go to this page to find the download:  http://tinyurl.com/bekszp

Another issue, LoFi #2, is available for public consumption at http://lomomanila.ph/lofi2.html

Issue #5 is in the works.  I’ll let you know when it’s in the can.
