Wrong on two points.
Lomo is the name of a camera (Lomographische), as well as short for the 'idea': Lomography, coined off of this camera, is used to represent a shooting style. It is supposed to be a relaxed, 'shoot-from-the-hip' type. The idea is kindof about breaking all the photographic rules. They stress not thinking, not worrying about focusing, etc. etc. A lot of the time people will cross-process their film as well, to add to the uncertainty.
It's sort of a semi-guided neo-dada thing (don't think about that too hard even if you know what I'm saying).
I want to be remembered for the
people I helped make memorable;
personal success is overrated if it
doesn't help everyone's progress.
