The Other Side is a magazine celebrating London's unique culture. They invited us along to their supercool rooftop party, and here's what went down!
The Lomography UK team went along to the rooftop of the Queen Of Hoxton, to celebrate the launch of The Other Side Magazine's festival issue. In true festival style we were armed with LC-A+s, X-Pro Chrome and Diana flashes. We had some rum, we watched some bands, and we took photos of all the great people we met (with varying responses of ‘what a cool camera!’ and ‘geez that’s bright!’)
The time has come to launch our amazing new Lomography Art Lens - the Petzval lens. What better way to celebrate than by throwing a party on August 21 at the Lomography Gallery Store Soho? There will be live music from London-based folk singer Denai Moore, lots of bubbly and the chance to meet the lens face-to-face! Read on for full details.

Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
