Lomographic Society International HQ Vienna Austria

11

This home to the plastic fantastic that we love to shoot with!

Lomographic Society International is located at Hollergasse 41, A 1150, Vienna, Austria. A huge space with a courtyard area to the rear with a red painted wall saying lomography; with as I recall 3 levels to the building making up the Vienna HQ. It appears to be like a tardis as it just seems to grow and grow level to level inside as you walk up the concrete stairs.

One of the most interesting area’s within the building is the archives –in which box upon box of images sorted by colour is stored- I’d estimate that well over a million images must be housed there. Everywhere you go there are lomo walls and memories of all things lomo – the building as you would expect is a very quirky and truly unique feel to it. It actually smells of LCA!

Each level opens up to an expansive larger room which has then been sectioned off into smaller work areas. All in all a center hive of activity with that buzz of energy zapping around. A really fun place to hang in and visit. Of course you can shots lomo’s images every 2 steps ;)

    The Lomography HQ is great! it's like a big Lomo-Wonderland with Cameras lying around everywhere!
    It just looks as if it was founded by the students in the 90s - great Lomo atmosphere!

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!

    The Lomo LC-A Goes to Vienna

    Vienna is the capital and largest city of Austria. It has been mentioned in a myriad of pop culture references in books, music, and film, and is also the home of the Lomography headquarters. The history of Vienna stretches back to a far 500 BC, which is why it’s no surprise that the city is steeped in rich, unique, and fascinating culture and history that has inspired artists of all generations.
