The analogue love was flowing last night at our debut party in Santa Monica! Our new store was christened by a lively performance by the Petrojvic Blasting Company, LA's own nouveau-gypsy band. An abundance of food, drink, and good times were had by all!
Check out the first low-fi photos from our opening party!
The first 25 lucky people at the store were taken on a LomoJourney to the Santa Monica Pier. Armed with Lomography cameras, they learned to light paint and got a free ride on the famous Ferris Wheel!
We are so excited to be at our new home in Santa Monica! Thanks to everyone who came out last night and made us feel welcome in the neighborhood :)

We met our new LomoAmigo Luka Tacon when we danced to the hypnotic beats of his duo Heartbreaker at our Lomo'Instant Wide Launch Party in NYC. Now, the brooklyn-based DJ and electronic music producer is preparing for an EPIC Lover's Ball at House of Yes with his friends at Might Get Weird, experimenting with the La Sardina and LC-A, and feeling the Latin rhythms of Costa Rica. Read more about his inspirations and how he feels analog equipment, whether it be for music or photography, has something that digital just doesn't. As a special bonus, you can listen to his exclusive Heartbreaker set!
Architectural photographer Christopher Payne documents America’s industrial heritage with his large format images. For his project "Asylum," he visited 70 abandoned psychiatric hospitals across to country between 2002 and 2008.
It's human nature to be restless and imaginative. The real may be interpreted as what one sees or how one sees something. For the daydreamer, a scene from nature transforms into a canvas. Suddenly a field makes room for chemical coloring, all those anachronistic streaks that somehow look right. Or else, those beautiful colors amplified or subdued to their most pictorial shades. All in the world of trial-and-process film photography.
