The Budapest Embassy store is located in downtown Budapest, where most of the clubs, restaurants, pubs, cafes can be found. The store is in a 170 years old house which was converted to a ’ruin pub” several years ago. It became a determining part of the nightlife in Budapest and serves as a cultural meeting point for citizens and tourists as well. On December 11 the big opening of the Lomography Embassy Store took place there. Check out the pics!
As part of the "ruin pub”, the Lomography Embassy Store is becoming an exciting meeting point for lomographers. They can sit down for a drink, have a chat, read our books, etc. We have a Lomography gallery (exhibitions are changing every third month), which is open every day from 10 am to 4 am and also during parties. We offer film development, workshops, and of course Lomography parties – held every second month.
The very first party was of course the opening! At 5pm we had a short introduction about Lomography and the store for the press. After that we opened the gallery where professional photographers had their lomographic pictures exhibited. During the party nine lomography cameras were mounted to the tables of the pub so people could shoot with them the whole night. More pictures will be available soon on lomography.hu. Thanks to the dj-s everyone was in a party mood until dawn! Hope to see you soon at one of our next parties, workshops or exhibitions!

Derek Woods is an Los Angeles-based photographer who previously got involved in a controversy surrounding a photo that was used in the opening credits of the HBO TV series "True Detective." Coincidentally, Woods happens to be a member of the Lomo community, and it became vital to interview him regarding the issue. The interview was successful and was published in May last year. His current project, 365 of Lomography, will chronicle his day-to-day exploits with Lomography cameras. To jog your memory, and to re-acquaint you with Woods, we are republishing our interview with the controversial photographer. Please take note that some of the photos are NSFW.
In December last year James Wright, editor and creative director of So It Goes Magazine, went on a two-week trip to Sri Lanka, "a place so long on our bucket list, but up until then, as yet unvisited," he writes on the first of his three-part photo diary. Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.
