A street art Lomowalk by Russell Darling

A community member takes matters into his own hands by organising a street-art inspired Lomowalk in London!

Russell Darling (Aka Dharling!) is an interesting character. By day he digitises the crap out of films such as the Twilight Sagas but by night (and day during the weekends) he cruises the streets of London searching for interesting locations geared up to the max with Analogue photographic equipment.

The best part is that he is a regular at the store. It was a no-brainer to let him do a Lomowalk when he proposed a Graffiti tour in London.

Mr Dharling Spinning

In His own words:

A group of 25 Lomographers met up at London’s Lomography Gallery Store to embark on a tour of one of the greatest collections of street art in the world.

Our three mile walk started from the Old Street underground station where we explored the backstreets of Shoreditch, then finally wrapping up at the tour on Brick Lane.

We discovered and photographed works of art by internationally (in)famous artists such as Banksy, Invader, ROA, Vhils, EINE, and Part2ism. These incredible art pieces featured everything from giant animals and video game space invaders, to portraits and a variety of colourful characters.

Although some street art might disappear overnight, we got some amazing photos that will ensure that the artwork lives on forever. A good time was had by all!
