If you happen to be in Hong Kong, at Times Square, the most popular and functional shopping mall located in Causeway Bay you can visit the Times Square Lomography Exhibition from 11th April to 3rd May 2011.
Times Square is considered a public artistic place and it holds various art exhibitions, cultural projects, charity events as well as movie promotions. There you can find a giant LomoWorldMap and the Lomographic cameras grew multiple times larger than the original size. From the ground, you can see gigantic Fisheye No.2, Diana F+, Sprocket Rocket, and Lubitel 166+. LomoWorldMap Project is a giant walkable map, made up entirely of individual, beautiful analog photographs, documenting a perception of the world using geotagged pictures. All of these pictures have been taken by Lomographers from all over the world using analog film cameras. Once these photos are amalgamated together, they make up this incredible representation of the world. During the digital era, this exhibition is a unique way to introduce people to the amazing world of analog photography. There you can play, interact with cameras, learn everything you ever wanted to know about analog photography, and much more! During this exhibition, there will be Mini LomoWall Workshops every Sunday afternoon at Times Square 2/F. Kids and adults are welcome to join this workshop. Every Saturday you will have a very warm welcome because Lomography will give away free cameras. Besides the giant LomoWall and giant cameras, there will be a pop-up store, art juror, trampolines! This wonderful exhibition will feast your eyes and your mind will be blowing.
