Have you heard about the massive LomoMap in Cologne? The one Lomography is setting up to celebrate photokina 2012? No? Then let us fill you in on the impressive details – just read on to find out all about it!
We all know that incredible feeling of being the first one to achieve something very special. Thanks to some great collaborative work, Lomography and Das Telefonbuch have done just that! And we’re organizing the very first exhibition to take place in the square in front of Cologne’s main train station right next to Cologne’s famous cathedral!
A short 20 minute walk from our legendary Lomography Gallery Store in Cologne, the LomoFloor will represent a giant map of Germany’s finest Lomographs, taken and chosen by our incredible community. Together with Das Telefonbuch: we set up an online competition beyond comparison asking our German community to submit Lomographs featuring all facets of Germany. The result is a 1000m2 space filled with 170,000 analogue pictures and 1560 LomoPanels. How long did all that take you ask? Over 1,500 working hours!
You can walk right over this photomap and this will allow you to stroll over the lush fields of Bayern in the South, cross the Thuringian Forest, enjoy the party scene of Berlin and return to Cologne in a few steps.
To keep you busy, we also planned a lot of exciting games and treasure hunts! Want to discover Germany’s best-kept secrets? Then make sure to head to the opening party starting at 6pm on the 18th September 2012!
