Lomography Gallery Store LA Grand Opening

2010-02-08 16

The City of Angels is set to experience first hand a truly analogue revolution with the grand opening of the Lomography Gallery Store in LA!

February 18th, 2010 is the big date!

That’s when the first Lomography Gallery Store and official Lomography Embassy will open its doors on the West Coast! To mark the event and usher in the new era of Lomography in Los Angeles, we are planning a huge celebration with an ocean of drinks, live Mariachi music, tacos and tamales, and even dancers! And we would like to invite you to join the fiesta! The festivities will begin at 7:00pm, and run until we are out of drinks! Space on the guestlist is limited, so to ensure your spot at the party, send an RSVP to shopla@lomography.com now!

Lomography Arrives in Los Angeles with a New Store and Embassy!

The grand opening party is just the beginning, Angelinos. Get ready for the full Lomographic experience, as the new store will also be your meet-up spot, workshop location, gallery space, and feature the full line of Lomographic products and services.

Come in and paw that camera you’ve been dreaming about, pick up some film, and soon even drop off your film for processing! You’ll also be able to take part in workshops and exhibitions, or just come spend the afternoons or evenings chilling on our couches and talking shop with other Lomographers and friends!

We’ve got a ton of stuff planned for the coming year, and we hope you’ll take the ride with us!

Check Out a Workshop and Find Out:
What the Hell is Lomography?

We want to come out of the gate running in Los Angeles, so we’ve planned a series of workshops for the first week that will get you caught up on all you need to know about Lomography (and more), so you can begin shooting like a seasoned Lomographic vet. Check out this packed first week schedule led by a visiting Lomographic expert from the New York Lomography Gallery Store:

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
