Digital Lomographic Art
by Ricardo Hage de Matos
About the Book
In "Digital Lomographic Art" Ricardo Hage presents pictures taken from his everyday life using an iPhone and CameraBag. This software transforms the pictures inside the camera phone trying to add the kind of characteristics we found in lomo film cameras.
His photos, obtained wherever he carries his mobile phone, shows his unique composition and color choices, transforming the pictures in a record of another world, full of wonder and mystery. We start to follow Ricardo's images as someone looking for missing elements in a puzzle.
The pictures reproduced in this book are a selection of images obtained with this process. The selection prioritized the visual impact produced by the image and the transformation degree obtained between reality and the modified picture.
