On Thursday February 17th we will be kicking off our Blue Hour sessions with a live performance at the Greenwich Village shop by Brooklyn’s own Year of the Tiger! The Village Voice describes Year of the Tiger as a “mix of blown-out crunch-fuck noize and cheerful pop chants” and also named their song “Rockit” as best local music of 2010

There will also be festivities at the Gramercy shop. So come along for the first of many exciting evenings at the Lomography stores!

Why Blue Hour?
As you may know “The blue hour” comes from the French expression l’heure bleue, which refers to the time after the sun goes below the horizon and the sky goes into deep blue for a while. The time is considered special for photography, because of the quality of the light at this time of day. Furthermore it has a certain influence in popular culture: As a result of the perceived specialness of this time, there are various restaurants, theatres and hotels called L’Heure Bleue located worldwide. There is also a women’s perfume by Guerlain (1912) of the same name.
