In this chapter of Lomogon Stories, French photographer Louis Dazy takes us along a night out across Paris with his friends. We also catch a glimpse of brief moments captured with the new Lomogon 2.5/32 Art Lens.
I was back in Paris for a few weeks this summer, my friends and I figured out we should go to the fun fair of La Concorde — and I hadn’t been to a fair in years. The last memory I’ve got is when I used to go with my parents as a kid, so it was quite a while ago.
We had a few drinks before because hey, that makes it a bit more fun. I was carrying my EOS-1 with the Lomogon on it, we got there right when the sun was setting down. I like night time so much more, especially for shooting, you get all these glowing lights and neons, basically, everything I love.
Then, there is this smell of fun fair, well I know there is no such thing but the mix of sugar and fried things is kind of it and makes you feel like a kid again. I shot 3 rolls on that night, we got on a few rides, ate deep fried stuff and had fun.
As soon as the first rides stopped we headed straight to the dark streets of Paris, eventually walked til 3 am and kept drinking.
