The Store
The Lomography Embassy Store is loacted in a ruinpub called ‘Fogashaz’, in downtown Budapest where you can find numerous pubs, cafés, restaurants and clubs. The ~30m² are designed in contrast to the historic buiding itself – the bright space includes a LomoWall, a lounge area for having a coffee and reading through Lomography books and a scanner service. With a pub right next door and a gallery space you can expect lots of parties, workshops and exhibitions to come up!

The Opening
We officially invite you to join the opening on Saturday, 11th of December. After an introduction for press at 4.30pm the doors are opened for the public at 6pm and with this also the first Lomography exhibition. We will show “accident on purpose” – the lomographic work from famous Hungarian photographers – accompanied by Vázsonyi János on the saxophone and DJ Bem on the turntables.
The pub will host the opening party starting at 8pm with music from DJ Keyser. As a special, we will mount Lomography cameras to the bar, to reduce your waiting time for your drinks and to get some amazing shots!

The LomoWall
Thanks to your help, we could print 4.500 pictures to form a 5.2m long and 4.6m high LomoWall. After two days of creative and construction work, we finally could mount it in its full beauty and where totally overwhelmed.

    Trending LomoKino Movies of October 2015

    Creating a movie, no matter how short it is, requires a certain amount of discipline.

    Simeon Smith Shoots with the LomoKino

    Several months ago, Simeon Smith recorded all the bleeps, whirs, clanks and snaps that analogue cameras make. He then used these samples to create rhythms and textures for his music. He has since ventured into other projects, and recently made a music video using the LomoKino and an Actionsampler.

    Passionate About Film: Since Alive

    Since Alive was founded in 2010 with one mission: to uphold film photography despite the steadily increasing popularity of digital imaging. It aims to provide guidance and information to analogue photography enthusiasts through its website, which has become a platform for showcasing the creativity and techniques of its followers. Since live has also ventured into developing products to bolster the practice of analogue photography and its Bento Film Case has proven to be very useful.
