Analogue by Tom Sheehan: Private View Recap

On the first Thursday of every month, the galleries and museums of East London open their doors late for a chance to see amazing art, culture, and events after hours. In November, after months of planning we finally launched the first solo exhibition by music photographer Tom Sheehan. We think it was well worth the wait. See how we got on and who we bumped into here.

Analogue by Tom Sheehan Private View

This exhibition had been planned way back in the summer so by the time November came around I was itching to tell everyone about the new show from Tom Sheehan. We got everything set up and were kindly given two big boxes of lager from the wonderful Saint Beer company.

The show had already attracted lots media with articles in The Quietus, Mojo, Q magazine, The Arts Desk and even a news flash on BBC6 Music.

The show opened at 6pm and by 6.45pm we were already at full capacity. I couldn’t open the beer bottles fast enough!

Everyone wanted to know more about the photographs and Tom spend lots of time talking through is work with people and explaining the techniques used.

At one point I started chatting with a guy called John who was a music producer. He told me he’d produced The Stone Roses XTC, The Fall and was responsible for The Bends by Radiohead. It wasn’t until the next day I realised that it was super famous producer John Leckie. EEK!

The night was such a great success and there wasn’t a drop of lager left!

Accompanied by my LC-A+ and Fisheye No. 2, here are my highlights of that evening in photographs.

    Cast of Dark: Dusky Purple

    By now the Lomography site is like a pail of candied purple. Our confection LomoChrome Purple has produced forests and flower beds the shade of lavender macarons. Hard to resist the fantasy! But lately we have noticed darker, late-afternoon-sun versions. And we like what we see.

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

    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 won't be reflected on 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.

    Travel Stories: The Bolivian Highlands by lonur

    My wife and I suffered a family loss in October 2013 so we decided to shift things around and have a celebration of life—a wedding, actually—to associate our loss with the beginning of something positive and memorable. We have been together for nearly 13 years and after getting married, we headed off on a three-month trip to South America and a few other stops to complete a round-the-world loop back to Australia.
