The Lomo: Perfection is Overrated

I can think of nothing more boring than a photo that looks exactly like I planned. Some photographers have the ability to perfectly craft a photo by manipulating an environment until things fall into beautiful alignment. I definitely respect that, but I have no wish to work that way. For me the beauty is in the chaos, not the organization. Lucky for me I don’t have to make a living from working that way because leaving a photo to chance is literally a shot in the dark. You point your film in the direction of something interesting and hope for the best. That mentality puts me in the company of the Lomography fans. Here is a video documenting the rise of the Lomo camera:
