Chris Holmes MBE at launch of Lomo wall
The Museum of London has teamed up with the analogue photography community Lomography to present a 65 meter long Lomo wall, which is on display from today till 6 January 2013.
It’s made up of 30,000 photographs from all over the world, including pictures from the paralympic athletes in training.
Chris Holmes MBE, a keen photographer, attended the launch. When he was 14 Chris became blind, however this didn’t seem to discourage him. As a swimmer he has won 15 Olympic medals for Britain and this includes nine golds. This has made him the most successful paralympic in Britain.
Chris uses what he hears and feels to decide when to take a photo. He particularly enjoys photography and is drawn to the philosophy of “don’t think just shoot” as it values everyone’s artistic expression equally.
The photos which he submitted were from a charity run that he had done with his manager; he would stop and take a photo depending on what he could hear was going on around him.
The Lomo wall has an abstract appearance which is created by thousands of printed images; it’s become famous because of the distinctive waves of colour. The photos close up can be enjoyed as well as the outer picture which also creates a piece of mosaic artwork.
