Beautiful LomoWalls in Washington DC's Union Station

A LomoWall is created from a flood of authentic, colourful and awe-inspiring analogue snapshots, also known as Lomographs. Part exhibition, part experience, a LomoWall is the sum total of thousands of Lomographs taken by Lomographers from every corner of the globe. So far Lomography have built LomoWalls in many a far-flung place, for example, the Photokina in Cologne; Trafalgar Square, London; Beijing, MOMA in New York.

Recently, Lomography and the American Red Cross teamed up to create two beautiful LomoWalls in Washington DC's Union Station.

"Last March, hundreds of kits with journals and our cameras were sent to people all over America who at one time or another had been helped by the American Red Cross. They were asked to share their stories. Made of these photographs and alongside their stories, these fantastic LomoWalls now reside in Washington DC's Union Station.
The wall construction began last week when a box of blank LomoWall panels arrived at our headquarters here in New York City. For days, our team worked nonstop to beautifully arrange the photographs taken by those helped in some way by the American Red Cross to create a very unique wall with the Red Cross logo. In partnership with creative agency BBDO, the two Lomowalls will also be exhibited alongside story walls featuring Lomographs and inspiring handwritten stories just in time for American Red Cross Month!" - via Lomography Magazine.
