An Unofficial Lomography Meet-up in York


We thought after the success of the Manchester roadshow, us Northern lomographers would get on arranging or own meetings until we have a store in our neck of the woods. The first one is coming up at the end of July.

So I wrote a blog entry which you can have a read of here

There has been quite a bit of interest so we are going to go ahead with a meet up on Saturday 30 July in York. We will have our very own local guide in the lovely jimw08. I have put 10:00 as a meeting time but realistically I think I will sit in Costa Coffee in the train station from 10-10:30 so people have time to find us, call us if necessary and get organised. I have never actually been to York rail station but I have had a look at a map of it and there appears to be a Costa in a WH smith opposite the main entrance/concourse area. Please anyone correct me if this is not right!
The specifics of the day are going to be decided by our tour guide but I think we are going to head off from the station and visit York Minster first. Then we will be visiting the Shambles (oldest shopping street in Europe), the city walls and riverside at various points through the day. We will finish around 6pm we think in an ice-cream parlour which Jim is a big fan of. Obviously if people want to leave before then that is fine and equally I am sure there may be some stragglers who’ll head off to a pub in the evening.
It would be really great if I could keep a bit of a count up of who will be attending and how many so if you could indicate in the comments if you will be there then I will PM you my mobile number in case you need it on the day.
Anyone is welcome to join us so feel free to send this article to friends and lomographers alike, and hopefully I will see you in York.

    Estonian Intersections of Sight and Sound

    Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.

    Lorenzo Antico's 'Final Shot' Presents Last Shots From 33 Films

    A movie's parting shot is a crucial element in the sense that it could either make or break the lasting impression that it would have on its audience. It could either wrap things up quite nicely and leave viewers satisfied, or it could do otherwise. For many, it's often the first thing that comes to mind long after the final credits have rolled out.

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
