The Lone Star State of Lomography

4

There have been rumbles, rumors, and reveals, but here is the official scoop on the Austin Lomography Gallery Store. We have a location, we have plans, and we are getting started. Take a peek at the genesis on the Austin home of Lomography!

We have an official address for the gallery store in Austin:
912 Congress Ave.
Austin, TX 78701

We are battling the Texas heat to get these doors open by the time it cools off. There is much work to be done to install Lomography in a space that is in a historic district of Austin. Our building is well over 100 years old and part of the Capitol Corridor. We are getting permission from all different directions.

Just how close to the TX capitol are we? Here’s the view from our door!

We are 2 blocks away from the seat of power in the state. Buried deep in the heart of Texas and it’s capitol city center is truly energizing. There are big plans for us to fit in with the Live Music Capitol of the World, but more on that later. We have some tall ceilings and some big space to fill. We can’t wait to see what kind of Lomo Wall we can fit in here.

Limestone covers all the walls and it’s restored to its original state from when it was first built. The last tenant, called Gem’s Jewelers, was owned and operated by Gem for 60 years. We are honored to take this space and polish it into the shiniest shop on Congress Ave.

Well, we have more work to do, as you can see, so we’re going to get back to it. Stay tuned for more updates on the build out of the first Lomography Gallery Store here in Austin.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    A Hunt for Curious and Wonderful Patterns

    Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
