It was our very first go round at offering up our space here at Lomography Gallery Store LA to the person with the best idea for an exhibit—and we couldn’t be happier with the results! Winner Laura Austin presented us with an offer we couldn’t refuse— a photo show featuring images by prolific LA area creatives, using different Lomography cameras and film types—a Lomographic grab bag! You know us, we hosted a big party in celebration, check it out!
What: “Everyone’s A Photographer”: Exhibit Opening
When: Friday, November 2nd, 2012
Where:Lomography Gallery Store LA
We gave each participant a camera of their choice and with this amazing group we knew we would see nothing short of brilliance! Along with curator Laura Austin, participants Chad Muska, Corey Smith, Jared Eberhardt, Jeremy & Claire Weiss, Natas Kaupas, Ian Ruhter, Danny Zapalac and Jason Lee Parry each had a month to shoot photos of anything their hearts desired and we displayed the resulting analogue magic, 5 photos from each participant.
To celebrate the exhibit’s opening we threw a huge bash and we were blown away by the turn out! Great photos, great music, a dance party erupted and everyone got their drink on courtesy of Pabst, Peligroso Tequila and Coconut One.
If you didn’t get a chance to make it out for the party, no worries! The fun doesn’t stop here. The show will be up through November and we want you to contribute. Shoot your photos using a Lomography camera, and submit them to hang up in a public space in the gallery. If you aren’t local you can submit through Laura's Facebook page to be featured. All photos will be considered for feature in a book about the exhibit.
So stop by, check out the show and get inspired! Don’t miss your chance to become part of our very first Dream Space exhibit!
