Lomography Gallery Store Opening party. Time for the full story!

16

I know it's taken a while but as soon as the party stopped the customers started. It's non-stop here but finally a gap allows me to share some images. Thanks to Jaypeg and Uslan we have some decent analogue shots of the opening party for the Lomography Gallery Store London.

We came, we found, we signed, we partied (hard) we conquered! The Lomography Gallery Store is officially open! The after-party clean up is nearly over and still we are finding boxes of stock in random places (shhhhh).
The party went a little bit too well, no dramas (apart from drama queens), no violence (aside from some hard camera flashing), and no drunk people (aside from everyone who was at the party)!

The Diana Mini and The Future Is Analogue Cakes were devoured in seconds. Les Apaches and Betty Steeles couldn’t have been more perfect on the night. Les Apaches even turned the street into a party. All the people who couldn’t get in were entertained by them and our Royal Guard carrying a Mr Pink Diana+

Many guests managed to leave with a voucher giving them 15% off one sale during the month of Septmber. We don’t want anyone to feel left out so if you come in and say: “The Future REALLY IS Analogue” you’ll get one also!
All you have to do now pop in! The full range of Lomographic products are available; 14000 images on our lomowall to see, a hang-out area and books to check out. Don’t forget to look out for the upcoming workshops starting in October and join us on facebook!!

    Lomography x Nixon Petzval Video

    Last month, Lomography Gallery Store Soho held an exhibition of photographs taken at the Nixon Surf Challenge in Russia. Free drinks and live music from Swim Mountain overflowed at the opening party. Using the Petzval lens and a star-shaped aperture plate to give a beautifully soft, dreamy effect, the folks at the Soho Gallery Store created a video of the event. Watch this video after the jump.

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
