The Mastermind Behind The LGS Toronto

Our team at the Lomography Gallery Store Toronto is made up of some of the finest minds that we know, all led by our store manager, Kimon! Read on to find out more about Kimon and how he runs this ship!

Say hello to Kimon! He is the store manager at the Lomography Gallery Store Toronto and does a fine well job at it. Not only is he an avid Lomography enthusiast, he is also a fine art and freelance photographer on his off-time. Some of his favourite things include bow-ties and mix-matched socks, vintage cameras and everything and anything film. Kimon grew up in Calgary, Alberta watching shows like Fraggle Rock and Inspector Gadget. Kimon found himself in Toronto, Ontario where he got his BFA in Photography and his MA in Communication and Culture. His favourite words from school are nostalgia and semiotics.

His favourite Lomography camera is the Lubitel 166+ and he is most excited for the Lomography Smartphone Film Scanner which is launching very soon!

Check out a gallery of some of his own analogue photos below:
