the crap shoot exhibit
LomoManila goes to Mag:net Bonifacio High Street

Local photography movement LomoManila splashes its vibrant images on to the walls of the new Mag:net Café High Street in The Fort Global City from August 13 to September 10. The ever growing group of toy camera lovers unveils their collages of exciting and colorful lomographs with a launch on Monday, August 13, 8pm featuring five themed lomowalls and musical performances by Kate Torralba, Mozzie, Shoulder State, Mobster Manila, Top Junk, Free Beer and Sanity Kit.

Lomomanila is a community of toy camera photographers who advocate the use of film and a non-traditional approach to photography, disregarding the basic rules of composition and exposure. With hundreds of members in the community, this exhibit will have more than 250 lomographs from about 50 active Lomographers using a variety of film and toy cameras.

"We have taken Lomography and Lomomanila into the mainstream, exhibiting in a high profile location such as Mag:net in the Fort. We hope we can get the interest of more people in Lomography and appreciation for our style and brand of images. We appreciate Mag:net for supporting our movement and the art community in general," Robert Rojales, comments.

The exhibit, dubbed the Crapshoot, dedicates entire walls to shots of body parts, flash photographs, self portraits and the best work of some LomoManila members with over-the-top angles, colors and techniques. “LomoManila’s exhibits are not only exhibits, they are a celebration of creativity and friendship. When you join LomoManila you’re not only joining a photography club but an entire barkada full of fascinating and wonderful people,” LomoManila Founder At Maculangan emphasizes.

The group started in 2003 as an e-group of Filipino artists drawn to the lomography movement which started in Vienna, Austria. Since LomoManila’s inception, it has held exhibits in BlackSoup Projects in Marikina Shoe Expo Cubao, Route 196 Bar and Mag:Net in Katipunan, and DPI Photography Center in Ortigas. It is a mix of artistic individuals from students to corporate executives, writers, visual artists and professional photographers.

“Lomomanila is the most vibrant, the most exciting and the most welcoming photography community I have ever come across. We are very proud to have them in Mag:net Bonifacio High Street," Mag:Net’s Gabe Mercado comments.

LomoManila’s “Crapshoot” at Mag:Net Bonifacio High Street runs until September 10. For more information, contact Bong Rojales at rrojales@gmail.com

Location: Philippines

Sometimes bored. Most of the time oddly alive. Phobic of butterflies. Creatively suppressed. Hungry for coffee and shoes. This is my subconscious talking... at times interrupted by my reality.

soundtrack of the moment
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea. Swimming through sick lullabies, choking on your alibis. But it's just the price to pay, Destiny is calling me. Open up my eager eyes 'cause I'm Mr. Brightside -- "Mr. Brightside" The Killers
