Legacy: The Daguerreotype Achromat in the 21st Century Exhibition Launch Party Soho

On November 18th the Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 lens will be available for purchase in the Soho Store. We had huge support on Kickstarter for this wonderful, soft focused lens and we will be celebrating with a huge party and exhibition of Daguerreotype Achromat Lens shots from photographers around the world. Join us for your chance to test this lens out and enjoy some complimentary drinks.

When: Friday 18th November 6-9pm
Where: Lomography Soho Store

Lomography are thrilled to announce the arrival in store of the newest member of the Lomography Art Lens family, The Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 lens. Thanks to the huge support on Kickstarter, we were able to produce this soft focused lens that is directly inspired by the world’s first photographic optic lens – a 19th century invention created by Charles Chevalier for the Daguerreotype camera.

We will be hosting an exhibition opening featuring shots, taken on this new beautiful lens, from the likes of Chris Pollard & Emily Soto. You'll get to try out the lens and talk to Chris Pollard about his experiences using this lens. There will be free drinks throughout the evening.

Everyone is welcome so do join us!
