At Lomography Store Manchester! Although we were only here for just over a year, we managed to squeeze in some truly epic parties, fantastic workshops and Lomographic highlights, here's some of the best bits from Manchester's Analogue universe!
Short and sweet, that’s how we’ll all remember our time at Lomography Gallery Store Manchester! That doesn’t mean we didn’t have time to throw some awesome parties though, starting with our opening party on 16th December 2011, who was here at the very beginning?
We also had some great launch parties that included, in no particular order: live animals, sailor tattoos, live bands, cakes, beach balls and much more! We’d like to take this opportunity to thank every person that came, drank and generally partied the hell out of the store with us. We enjoyed every single party and it was all thanks to you guys!
We’d also like to thank our amazing Street Team, for getting out there and spreading the word of Lomography, so here’s to you JennySparkle, Kneehigh85 and Fletchinski84! If they papped you out and about in Manchester during the summer of 2012 then head over to Facebook and tag yourself! Here’s a few to start with…
One of the most fun parts of being here in Manchester was hosting our regular workshops and teaching all you lovely Northerners all about the world of Lomography, from beginners to advanced snappers, everyone was catered for and we used as many cameras as possible to capture Manchester from as many perspectives as possible!
Being a Lomographer also has its perks, we got to go to some cool events to snap people, places and the madness of Manchester on film, our personal highlight was the Manchester Zombie Walk to raise money for Big Issue North, thousands of zombies took to the streets of Manchester to stumble their way through the city centre. We also went to the opening of the Football museum at its new home in the URBIS. There were parades galore with Pride and Manchester Day being celebrated just down the road and even a few wild nights out, which we only remember from the photos!
Don’t forget, our two Lomography stores down in London, Soho and East, will still be there to cater for all your Lomographic needs and you can send your film to them via the LomoLab Online Development Service by clicking here.
So from David Tester, David Powell, Natalie Ladden, Mustafa Raee, Victoria Schofield and Tom Ambrose, we want to thank you for an amazing time here in Manchester, here’s to many more years of analogue love and remember: THE FUTURE IS ANALOGUE!
