Deathly Greetings from the Lomography Embassy London

Oh what a night!

Oh what a night!

‘Dia de Los Muertos’- the party to celebrate the launch of the Discovering Latin America Film Festival happened last Sunday at Cargo in East London.

Many people came and took part in what can only be described as a totally beautiful and bizarre evening.

Beautiful girls in painted dead faces and Victorian ball-gowns danced with glamorous boys with painted cut smiles all across their faces and blood trickling from their eyes.

Lending Lomography Colorsplash cameras for the night was a total hoot! Many people took part and enjoyed the experience of documenting their lives, their art and their evening.

Live paintings by the wonderfully creative character Ricardo D’avila who, after finishing each piece, then gaffer taped these beautiful (and still wet) images all around the club and around us!

Hiccup was a performance piece by two bold and beautiful females hanging from the ceiling as thought rapped by a giant spider and teaching us a lesson we should have learned many years ago –DON’T PLAY WITH SCISSORS!

Then a Brazillian funk / punk band called Tetine had the well dead lookin’ crowd screaming with terror and begging for more.

After many hours of DJ’s and dancing the crowd left totally happy.

If you missed this fun last night fear not. Another night is planned to view all the images taken on the night and make beautiful LomoWall panels for a LomoWall exhibition that will hang the very next day at the Notting Hill Arts Club.

Come join in the fun at:

The Railway Pub
18 Clapham High Street
London
SW4 7UR

On Thursday 13th November from 7 – 11pm
Free entry.

Thanks and deathly love, as always, from your Lomography Embassy London
