We came, we partied (hard) and we conquered! The Lomography Gallery Store London is now open to all you blokes of the West End!
We came, we partied (hard) we conquered! The Lomography Gallery Store London is officially open! You’ll find the 9th Gallery Store perfectly positioned on Newburgh Street off the legendary Carnaby Street, in the heart of London’s Soho. The store itself is unique, laid out on three split-levels and decorated with an amazing 15,000 photo London Lomowall. Plus, it’s right opposite a pub… doesn’t get more British than that. Read on to find out how it all went off!

Open for Business… the recap
The party went a little bit too well, no dramas (apart from drama queens), no violence (aside from some vicious camera flashing), and no drunk people (aside from everyone who was at the party)! The Diana Mini and The Future Is Analogue cakes were devoured in seconds. Les Apaches and Betty Steeles couldn’t have been more perfect on the night. Les Apaches even turned the street into a party with their blend of burlesque enchantment. All the people who couldn’t get in were entertained by them and our Royal Guard carrying a Mr. Pink Diana F+.
Our aim with the Gallery Stores is to set up truly analogue spaces to explore Lomography in its entirety. Each Gallery Store showcases the complete Lomographic product line-up, provides a place to hang out and take part in workshops, exhibitions and other great events. We are already looking forward to Gallery Store openings in Berlin and Rio de Janeiro before the end of the year. Stay tuned!

These tenderly spoken words will magically slice a nice 15% off your purchase.
It all started with a LOMO LC-A+
What started with a little compact camera called the LOMO LC-A, has grown into a worldwide analogue phenomenon. Now Lomography is celebrating the opening of its 9th Gallery Store in London. As you may know, the LOMO LC-A has been celebrating 25 years in the analogue biz. We’ve had parties, competitions and special edition cameras… and there’s still more fun to be had. Take a look at the LOMO LC-A 25th Anniversary microsite to find out more!
