New York, NY—In 1992, a group of Viennese students stumbled upon a little black camera called the Lomo LC-A. Since then, millions of creatives worldwide have come together to build a movement—Lomography. Now celebrating its 25th anniversary, Lomography unveiled 25th anniversary editions of the LC-A+, LC-Wide and LC-A 120 cameras. The special editions, available while limited stock lasts, boast an exclusive leather design and an embossed anniversary message.
