A group of 17 brave souls ventured out in the chilly night last Thursday to meet the ghosts that haunt the streets of Soho.
We had a spooky guide, only known to us as “Sydney”, who led us through the narrow alleyways across the west end theaters, the red light district and chinatown with only a small rickety lamp to light the way.
We even made our way as far down to the Thames and captured some ghostly apparitions.
What a brave bunch they were despite only being armed with LC-A+ cameras in attempt to lure the supernational beings from their hiding places…
This month Lomography Soho are hosting an evening workshop at The Museum of London as part of their London Nights series. You'll also get the chance to discover the Queer History of Carnaby Street whilst learning all about the classic Diana F+ camera. Places are limited so book your spot today!
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.
A little while ago, Lomographer Matthew Alexander organized a LomoWalk for analog photographers in his hometown, beautiful Beacon, NY. He wanted to get to know and connect the film photography community of his town and invited everyone on a Saturday walk on Main Street.
Lomography have teamed up with the Museum of London to offer you tickets to see the London Nights exhibition, a collection of over 200 works by 60 photographers that document London at night. You could also win some Simple Use Cameras and some groovy MOL merch too!
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.
From a snippet that aired on CBS Sunday Morning, "Capturing the Moment" is a segment that focused on photojournalist Eddie Adams, who won his Pulitzer in 1969 for his famous image of a Vietcong prisoner about to be executed at a street in Saigon. Other photographers share their inklings as well.
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.
The ever experimental rock band from Alaska, "Portugal. The Man", gave a stellar performance of both their old and new tunes on September 17 in Gasometer, Vienna, and we brought our Neptune Convertible Art Lens System to capture their musical magic.
On November 10, we celebrated our 25th anniversary at the W Hotel New York. We kicked off the night by revealing our newly installed LomoWall as well as camera packages that will be available to any guests who book rooms at any of the W Hotels in NYC.
