Last night saw Sydneysiders from near and far converge on a street in Paddington for the launch of the Australian and New Zealand Diana World Tour.
Film crews asked questions and filmed steamy Lomo lovers. Our artist clones were admired from near and far and the bidding on Ebay has begun. Get online at ebay and make a bid. All the money being raised is for two worthy charities that need your support: World Child Cancer & See Through Me
Lomocentrics were out in force admiring the numerous cameras from the abundant Detrich Collection. Allan where were you? Who is this man that holds the secret to all the hearts of plastic camera lovers worldwide. What a collection!
Next stop is Melbourne and then we cross the Tasman Sea to Auckland, New Zealand.

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.
It's just like any other night for New York-based photographer Daniel Schaefer. In the city streets of New York, he and his model who goes by Dove Mother grab some dumplings for dinner, with the side salad of night photography using the handy Lomo'Instant Square.
Last week, the TEN AND ONE winners flew in from all over the world to enjoy a week of workshops and exchange about their love for photography. I had the pleasure of spending a day with them and the Lomography staff, going on one of the famous LomoWalks.

1998 was a big time for many interesting happenings -- the unveiling of Apple's iMac, the opening of the world's biggest airport, and a successful launch of Lomography's multi-lensed camera at the largest photography convention in the world!
Photographer Antonio Castello is an old friend of Lomography and has once again taken out our mutual friend, the Diana F+ for a fun night. This time, the iconic medium format camera got to scent the air of the fashion world!
So, here's something not quite new or shocking among Parisians, but a head-scratcher for all the people in the world. Apparently, the Eiffel Tower's been copyrighted when the lights are up in the night sky. In other words, you can't photograph the tower at night.
Hull is currently the City Of Culture for 2017 and what better way to add something special to this creative city than launching an official Embassy Store! Join us on December 8th for the official launch party from 6.30pm!
