Photos from Lomography Austin's SXSW Kickoff Party and Exhibition Opening Reception!

Despite the uncharacteristically cold rainy weather, the Lomography Gallery Store Austin kicked off SXSW in true analogue style. No Badges. No Wristbands. No Rules.

SXSW is one of the world’s largest music festivals, which has expanded over the years to include interactive and film festivals. Here in Austin the tourists come flooding in by the thousands and the locals search for any excuse to party down!!

As Lomographic law dictates, our night was complete with an open bar thanks to Tito's Vodka, Maine Root, Topo Chico and Lone Star; analogue tunes as spun by Sam from KVRX; and our very first exhibition made up of photos from our SXSW Exhibition Rumble paying homage to the 10 Golden Rules of Lomography!

Here are some photos from the night, with even more to come… including a film made with the LomoKino!
