The Store
The Lomography Embassy Store is loacted in a ruinpub called ‘Fogashaz’, in downtown Budapest where you can find numerous pubs, cafés, restaurants and clubs. The ~30m² are designed in contrast to the historic buiding itself – the bright space includes a LomoWall, a lounge area for having a coffee and reading through Lomography books and a scanner service. With a pub right next door and a gallery space you can expect lots of parties, workshops and exhibitions to come up!

The Opening
We officially invite you to join the opening on Saturday, 11th of December. After an introduction for press at 4.30pm the doors are opened for the public at 6pm and with this also the first Lomography exhibition. We will show “accident on purpose” – the lomographic work from famous Hungarian photographers – accompanied by Vázsonyi János on the saxophone and DJ Bem on the turntables.
The pub will host the opening party starting at 8pm with music from DJ Keyser. As a special, we will mount Lomography cameras to the bar, to reduce your waiting time for your drinks and to get some amazing shots!

The LomoWall
Thanks to your help, we could print 4.500 pictures to form a 5.2m long and 4.6m high LomoWall. After two days of creative and construction work, we finally could mount it in its full beauty and where totally overwhelmed.

    Creative Vision, Personified:The Community's Most Creative Lomographers

    As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.

If you haven't been there yourself, or if you have and simply wanted to be reminded of the beauty of the place, we've compiled a few select lomographs taken using no less than the LC-A by our community members!
