After ten years of Lomography in Japan, Tokyo is endowed with the country’s first Lomography Gallery Shop – a truly Analogue Space for Lomographic venture and cultural delicacies.

The setup is just finished and the preparations for the celebratory opening events are under way. The famous traditional Encapella G male choir has already been in sound check and is now rehearsing the finishing touches to a secret set from their wonderful blue Danube River repertoire.

In a grand new building between the high-class shopping district and the untamed nightlife quarter in the heart of Aoyama and Omotesando, Lomographers worldwide can touch down on yet another international Lomography domicile and Lomographer Interface.

European style amid of the sprawling Tokyo metropolis: the Lomography Gallery Shop Tokyo features European analogue style classics such as vintage Viennese interior design, glass combined with Japanese concrete and, naturally, the complete range of Lomographic cameras, books, bags and other photography accessories.

An extensive gallery space showcases 5,000 printed images from around the world, and will comprise the permanent display. Temporary collections by Lomographers and local artists will also be exhibited regularly. A collaboration between Lomography and the Kunsthalle Wien (Contemporary Art Museum) will give an additional perspective to the exhibitions.

The shop also offers a fine selection of workshops, various interactive events and get-togethers, as well as a face-to-face access to the Lomographic community.

A great chance for everyone in Tokyo to either take their first steps into the vast field of Lomography or to delve into the Lomographic way of life.

The Lomographic Society heartily invites you to join the enormous crowd of curious Lomographers and glamorous celebrities at the big opening party on Friday 11th July 2008.
