Fountain is an exhibition of avant garde artwork in New York during Armory week. When they contacted us about getting involved we thought it would be a perfect fit.
“The Fountain Art Fair reminds us of what it is to be young and creative in New York City…” —Wooster Collective.
So on Saturday night March 5th we partnered with the Fountain Art Fair and threw a Lomography Picture Party featuring performances by hip hop/punk trio Ninjasonik and NSR as well as all the great art at the fair! It seemed as if everyone in attendance was taking pictures with a Lomography camera or rocking a sticker. Ninjasonik got the crowed hyped into a Lomographic frenzy as we partied and photographed into the wee hours. Much fun was had and we have the pictures to prove it.
As you can see, this was a fantastic time! We can’t wait for next year!
Join us for an evening with NYC-based fashion photographer Emily Soto. Concurrent with her exhibition at our Gallery Store, "Petzval Portrats: Bloom," Emily will discuss her work and experience using the New Petzval Art Lens in her work. Gather insight into the creative process of one of New York's favorite photographers. This event will take place on July 9 at 6:00 p.m.
Since Lomography launched its new Petzval 58 Bokeh Control Art Lens project on Kickstarter, we've been seeing a variety of pictures, from images of snow monkeys in Japan to behind-the-scenes shots of New York Fashion Week. Many of these pictures were shot with digital cameras, but we've yet to see how the Petzval 58 performs on an analog Canon Rebel camera loaded with black and white, and x-pro film. Join us on a trip through the heart of New York's Chinatown during the Lunar New Year Parade.
Geoffrey Berliner is the Executive Director of the Penumbra Foundation and the Center for Alternative Photography in New York. As the head of an organization whose goals are 'to be a comprehensive resource for photographers at any level' and 'to continue to publicize the impact photography has had and continues to have on culture, history and the arts,' his exposure to photographic materials -from 19th century gems to modern equipment- is so extensive, one cannot even begin to fathom just how much knowledge and experience this man has acquired. His collection of over 2000 vintage Petzval lenses is unparalleled, and the object of envy of both traditional and contemporary photographers. Although such lenses are reputed to require a certain level of skill to be used, Berliner seems to manage them with so much ease, producing splendid results.
In the early part of the 19th century, lantern shows were the equivalent of movies. Photographs were hand-printed or transferred on glass plates, which were then projected on to a wall or cloth screen.
