2013: THE RENAISSANCE OF FILM MANUFACTURING!
For film photographers around the world, it’s time to celebrate! Both Lomography and Kodak Alaris have pledged an unwavering commitment to keep production of a large variety of photographic film emulsions alive and kicking in the 21st century.
Lomography: A few years ago, we discovered that there are many ways to manufacture all kinds of photographic film (color negative, slide and black & white) on both a large and small scale using old & new factories! These are creative opportunities that the film photography community and industry in general was not aware of for a long time, so Lomography took the initiative and started a lot of new photographic film projects. After releasing the world’s first pre-loaded and ready to shoot redscale film in 2008 and bringing back the 110 film format in 2012, in 2013 we have released a completely new film emulsion, LomoChrome Purple XR 100-400, a film that revives the classic Kodak Aerochrome look. We and our friends and partners in analogue film manufacturing are wholeheartedly committed to continue producing innovative, exciting and groundbreaking new kinds of films in the future.
Kodak: It is our pleasure that Kodak Alaris have also joined us on this quest into the analogue future. In an open letter addressed to the Lomography community, Dennis Olbrich (President of Personalized Imaging at Kodak Alaris) firmly states that Kodak will ‘continue to offer the full portfolio of photographic films and papers’. As partners in the mission to keep a great selection of film available for analogue photographers, we at Lomography are thrilled by this news.
