Be The Dice Man

Ever heard of the book called 'The Dice Man'?  Well the book tells the story of a psychiatrist who decides to make decisions based on a roll of a dice.  As you can imagine handing over your life to dice means anything can happen.

So Lomography Gallery London decided to base a workshop around this.  'Be the Dice Man with the Diana F+'.  The idea of the workshop incorporated the chance aspect of Lomography.  As a group we wondered the streets around Carnaby Street with a dice in one hand and a sheet in another telling us what to shoot depending on the roll of the dice.

Some of the options available included: -

  • Shoot a tourist
  • Walk 15 steps, shoot up
  • Shoot Love
Some of my photos are below: -

(I had spun round 5 times and took the first thing I saw - double exposed though! - Diana F+)

Definitely a fun workshop and something I tried again today (more on that later).  Maybe one day I may use the dice to decide what lottery numbers I should choose!


P.S.  The book is highly rated, so if you are looking for a book to read, give it a go xoxo
