The Beijing LC-A birthday party took place on June 19th at a small café called Wild Strawberry in the old yet funky quarter of Houhai not far away from the Beijing Lomo Shop. Every participant got a cool Lomo tatoo and a Diana+ Instax head shot (for lucky draw that happened later) at the entrance of the café.
The party officially kicked off at 8:00 pm with a video prepared by the Beijing Lomo Shop to warm up the atmosphere together with beer and soft drinks. Then a local rapper and a duet band was invited to give live performance on “the smallest stage” the hostess had ever stood on. They performed their most well-known songs with adapted lyrics specially for lomography. The performance was followed by a lucky draw where the lucky ones had to answer two lomography-related questions to win the prize which was a paper pinhole camera. Then came the fun part of “forming words with human bodies”. Three teams of lomographers were invited to twist their bodies to form simple words and sentences like "LC-A’ or “I heart LOMO”. The best team won. The climax of the party arrived when the big LC-A chocolate cake was presented and shared with specially designed paper plates. A few of the best lomographs shot by local lomographers were printed large and carefully framed to give away at the party. To get one of them home, one just needed to raise their hand and say why they loved it. At the end of the party, the head of the Beijing Lomo Shop nicknamed Xiao Qiang and three fellow lomographers played one of their favorite tune un-plugged.
