New Public Art Made From 14,000 Lomographs - The first permanent lomo photography wall has been unveiled in Manchester.
A 30m x 3m long artwork mounted on a concrete wall, forming a mosaic reflecting Manchester’s industrial heritage, is now on show in the Piccadilly basin area of Manchester city centre.
The project, which opens to the public today, contains 14,000 individual Lomographs and has been created by Lomography, the global organisation dedicated to using experimental and creative snapshot analogue photography.
Two Lomography fans, Tom Ambrose a University of Manchester student and Monica Sagar an Arden School of Theatre graduate and native Mancunian, have spent three weeks with the Lomography UK team carefully creating the masterpiece using over 1,000 different images of Manchester submitted by over 500 people.
Up to three hours free parking is available at the nearby Urban Exchange retail development off Great Ancoats Street for anyone wishing to visit the LomoWall.
