We announced the Lomography Embassy Store Bratislava and the Slovakian lomographers welcomed it with a lots of analogue love! Check out the pictures:
After a little warm-up at the shop’s very own ping pong table (don’t hesitate to pass by for a match), we had to dissemble it again very soon after officially raising the blinds and welcoming all Lomography lovers who joined us for the opening of the official Embassy Store Bratislava.
Champagne, vodka, a buffet with Slovakian cheese and caviar and music heated up the vibe – even the people on the street that couldn’t fit into the 30m² store anymore and waited passionately outside. Never before has this area in the middle of the historical center of Bratislava been so crowded and full of partypeople for the whole night! We are looking forward to the next party at the Lomography Embassy Store Bratislava!
Here’s the upcoming event schedule:
November, 12: Opening of the pinhole exhibition “Posledný deň v Stoke” by the community member Ivan Vaňo, (showing the last day at Stoka, a well-known alternative theatre in Bratislava right before its tear-off)
November, 20: Pinhole workshop with Ivan Vaňo
November, 27: DIY C41 workshop with thisispinkfu (another well-known Slovakian community member)
The Lomography Embassy Store Bratislava will serve all lomographic needs (including free scanner service and ping pong) at least until February 2011.
On the fourth day of Residency Week in Vienna, Lomography organized a day trip to Bratislava for us. The capital of Slovakia is only an hour away from Vienna by train so the trip turned out to be a wonderful idea. We were supposed to meet on the main railway station Hauptbahnhof.
Lomography Soho celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Diana F+ with a special, sparkly photo booth complete with groovy cocktails and lots of 70's sparkle. We documented the day with the Diana F+ with the Instant back and a prototype of the Lomo'Instant Square.
Last month Lomography UK celebrated 25 years of Lomography by building a great big Lomowall on Ganton St, Soho. We launched this on the same week as the Carnaby St Street party and it grabbed a lot of people's attention.
The TEN AND ONE Residency Week has been very intense and full of activities. From 11 to 18 November, we did LomoWalks around Vienna, guided visits to museums and magazine editorial office, a workshop, a trip to Bratislava, worked on our LomoWall and of course LomoLunch and LomoDinner. We had the opportunity to attend a Cyanotype Workshop at Lomography Head Quarter held by Michael Wuermer, a young and nice photographer and printer.
