Lomography UK Top 5 Events of the Year! Number 5

1

2012 has been quite an eventful year for Lomography UK. There have been parties, launches, exhibitions, cocktails and laughter. Now we are about to start a brand new year where the fun starts all over again. So we've collected the most memorable and eventful moments of the past 12 months in our Lomography UK Top 5 Events of the Year! See if you can guess what came in at number 1?

Starting us of with our top 5 round up of the years events is (drumroll) The Lomography London City Guide Launch. That’s right guys, we’ve been waiting to have our very own City Guide for months! When it finally arrived we were super exited.

We held a huge party at The Lomography Gallery Store Soho and all the staff and local lomofans rushed to see if their pictures and articles had been included. We brought a cake in to celebrate and had a great time eating it too!

The Lomography London City Guide has been a great success and is jam packed full of alternative and secret locations around London that only a true Lomographer would know about. The best bit about this book though is you don’t even have to be near London to enjoy it as it’s full of awesome photographs!

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.
