I almost don’t want to include this for fear of it becoming too popular. But I can trust you to keep it to yourself right? Situated down a flight of steps, behind a seemingly ordinary door that reads ‘number 57’, it’s a great hangout to have a few late night drinks in Soho. The bar feels like an exaggerated version of a Prohibition-era New York speakeasy. The walls are covered in so much Italian-American memorabilia that it feels like a joyous pastiche of itself. Al Capone, Joe Pesci, and Marlon Brando all watch over you while you sip. The drinks are cheap, the atmosphere is always buzzing, and in a city where everything seems so over-hyped, it’s nice to feel you’re in on a secret. At least it was, until I wrote this.
This month Lomography Soho are hosting an evening workshop at The Museum of London as part of their London Nights series. You'll also get the chance to discover the Queer History of Carnaby Street whilst learning all about the classic Diana F+ camera. Places are limited so book your spot today!
The best kind of street photography is the type where an outsider can see and learn so much about an unfamiliar place. Wherever he may go, London-based analogue photographer Claudio Gomboli possesses the gift of seeing and capturing daily street life with truth and beauty in them.
This month come and see the new exhibition by Brian May and choose your own camera for our workshops. Either test out some LomoChrome Purple film in the Soho streets or have a go at chasing shadows, light trails and reflections in our evening workshop.
