This image was shot using a LOMO Action Sampler and 400 ASA Superia Fuji Film hence the slight grain.

other shots using the lomo action sampler

One-second has been neatly dissected into four composite parts and lined up in perfect order to give you one shaky piece of 2 × 2 sampled action.
Tis more than a photograph and not quite a movie, you’ve got a permanent documentation of a snippet taken from your very own existence somewhere in the time-space continuum.
Tis also one wacky piece of photographic equipment, tis a real camera which consists of a tacky plastic box with four lenses strapped to the front, and inside are a few springs and cogs that reluctantly turn a full circle when you press the shutter release.
By some strange coincidence a standard boring old 35 mm film fits neatly into this box. Each time you hit the shutter release, despite the inferior quality of the lenses, light actually exposes the film at quarter-of-a-second intervals.
As soon as it’s bright enough the Action Sampler’s lenses go into action, giving you unexpected colours, haze and blur and a whole new world of shapes that’ll blow your mind.
The Action Sampler is not a finely tuned piece of apparatus made only of the finest in hand-crafted modern materials, it’s made of plastic. It is not a precision instrument with settings for the slightest nuance in aperture and lighting, it won’t even take a flash and the lenses are moody little beasties, reluctant to let any light get to the film at all.

    Well I finish uni in a couple of weeks and will have some more free time! We should meet at the Raincoat for a glass of vino or two (or coffee if you don’t like wine)

    I would love to have a go on your Lomo! Never fear I am very good with equipment since the time I was 19 and was working at my great uncles photography studio (training as an assistant) and dropped one of his most beautiful and very expensive Hasselblads I cried for about an hour I felt so bad!

  • oh noooo, holy shit you can’t borrow it! lol
    only kidding, of course you can!
    sounds like a good plan and yes i’m both good with coffee and wine! ;-) xox
    ps training as an assistant like that at the age of 19. wow, you are a purist! ;-) xox

    great work…as usual Aglaia, and an exceptional explanation. By the sounds of it you also have great patience and probably also a born optimist.

  • jim you make me laugh. LOL, that’s me, a born optimist, most of the time.

    the colors together with the unexpected (sorry, just using your words ;-)) distribution of sharpness and blurs creates a very matching feeling for the carelessness and freedom of youth

  • lol, surely they are not my words andreas!!!
    however, i love your comment.
    THANK YOU! ;-) xox
