An Evening of Analogue Fun: The Lomography Embassy Shop Vienna Big Opening Party

2013-11-26

It was an evening of sights and sounds for analogue devotees. The Big Opening Party for the new Lomography Embassy Vienna took place just last Friday, November 22. And what a party it was! Just look at the photos after the jump.

Some of our friends brought their own goodies to liven up the celebration. Live visuals and analogue music were provided by the trio of Stefan Sobotka-Grünewald, Volker Paul Sernetz and Lia Rädler, otherwise known as OchoReSotto. This team of projection artists, space designers and experimental film makers will soon be making the Lomography Embassy Shop Vienna its homebase.

Alexander Schuh AchSchuh and Karl Boutros Boutros Bruckschwaiger filled the celebration with even more music as the evening’s DJs, reviving tunes from the first Lomography Club in the 1990s. Robert Mayrhoefer and Tobias Ruger lent a more relaxed feel to the party with and voice and saxophone performance.

For the visually compelled, illustrations by Alexander Djikia were on display. The exhibit featured the illustrations Djikia made for the big LOMO LC-A book in 2008. And of course, a must-have in every Lomography shop, a LomoWall, already occupied a great deal of wall space, but is bound to get even bigger with contributions from more Lomographers.

A new addition to the Lomography Embassy Shop Vienna is the Embassy Lounge. The Embassy Lounge houses a fine café bar, music facilities, and a performance stage in uniquely furnished surroundings. The bigger venue made it all the more easier to freely enjoy the evening’s festivities. A new shop in a much bigger location was indeed a reason to celebrate, and celebrate the Lomography crew did.

With overflowing refreshments, great music, and awesome company, the Lomography Embassy Shop Vienna Big Opening Party was a huge success!

Here’s a video to prove it.

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.
