What: Sub-Cultures of Carnaby discussion with Ted Polhemus and In-Store performance from China Rats
When: Thursday June 7th 6 – 9pm
Where: Lomography Gallery Store Soho

Based in London, PYMCA is the World’s premier archive of Youth Culture. This unique collection sourced from all over the world, documents the lifestyles, fashions, music and subcultures of young people from the 1960s to the present day.

“Our goal is to celebrate through photography the energy, self-expression, idealism, frustrations, resilience and creative vitality of youth, the world over, and the subcultures and movements they inspire and create.”

The evening will start at 6pm with an in-store discussion from Ted Polhemus. For more than thirty years Ted has explored and celebrated the extraordinary ways that popular culture opens a window onto a broader understanding of the world we live in. Here at Lomography Soho, we are honored to be based right on the very street that was the geographic centre point of Swinging London. Ted will be here to give a talk around this theme and also on the 35mm camera as an icon for this time.

Following this we invite you to enjoy a drink courtesy of Saint and soak up the exhibition in its final day. PERFECT!!
