Lomography Gallery Store London - Open

36

400+ bottles of beer... 30 bottles of champagne, 50+ bottles of wine (some soft drinks) Vodka and even some water. Two fantasticly unique bands added to the atmosphere of the stunning crowd at the opening party of the Lomography Gallery Store London.

We were scared. More than 800 RSVPs for a store that fits 72 was a little worrying. Luckily our lomographic community are patient, relaxed, decent and cool. So everyone was happy to wait their turn to come and visit the most elegant store in the Newburgh Quarter.

The party started calm with everyone enjoying strawberries and cream while browsing through our weeks of hard work.

Things however turned vicious with the arrival of our first band Les Apaches. They entertained us with pure burlesuqe, analogue individuality and decided to pick up and turn newburgh street into an improvised street party.

Many more picks and stories to follow. But for now; good night!!

    It's very weird to see the back of my head in such detail. I find it very unsettling. Great video though! And a great night!

    "wait, 800?? jesus, there are hardly 800 people who even know about lomo in SoCal. as far as i know anyway"

    Youve got to realise that London is pretty damn big. Plus a large amount probably came from around the country :P. Lots of arty times in London.
