Lomography World Congress London

Lomography’s 7th World Congress took place in London, England – and also coincides the opening of London’s first gallery store! DJ sets, workshops and LomoMissions were scattered about ol’ foggy London for an entire week. The congress also coincides with the official launching of the classic Diana F+ camera.

The LC-A+ in China
2007

As the Russian manufacturers of the iconic Lomo LC-A decided to stop its production altogether, Lomography decided to look for another producer to keep the LC-A’s photographic legacy alive. It was a challenge at first, and the founders then found a solution – by trekking to China! This Eastern trip gave birth to the Lomo LC-A+, recreating the classic Minitar lens and adding new functionality. This ‘old brand new’ creation stays truthfully to the iconic vignettes and eye-popping colors analogue enthusiasts learned to love 20 years and counting.

A grand Lomowall has been crafted, with over 100,000 amazing film images from Lomographers all over the world.
