The Grand Opening Of The Lomography Gallery Store East London!

8

On a cold and frosty night one corner of East London was alive with music, laughter, and Lomography as we opened the second London store in style!

Although the party started at 7pm there was already a queue of devoted Lomographers braving the cold and eager to be the first through the door at half past six. We salute you!

We had a great turn out of people, who were excited to see our beautiful new shop in a corner unit in the heart of London’s trendy East End. People spent time checking out the cameras (including the new LC-A+ White!), meeting the new team, and trying to spot their pictures in the massive new Lomowall, before moving downstairs to what will become the workshop space and lab.

For now though, this was the place to grab a cocktail, meet fellow Lomographers, and enjoy the comedy music stylings of the Moonfish Rhumba!!

The Lomography Gallery Store – East London is now open! Please pop in any day of the week between 10am and 7pm, at 117 Commercial Street, London, E1 6BG

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
