You guessed it! Of course we went to the NYC Lomography Gallery Store Opening! How could we resist? It was a splendid gathering of toy camera lovers drooling over the newest, coolest Lomography gear! To make the night even that much better, drinks, food and music were provided. We knew Lomography could throw a pretty gosh darn good party.
Michael sported his modified Diana F+, which was a great conversation piece. Even Liad took photos of Michael’s little, masterpiece. Michael will be posting his Diana pictures shortly, just waiting to get them back from the lab.
Although I own the Diana, Diana Edelweiss and a Holga, I grabbed the intant camera known as the Fuji Instax 200. I felt a little guilty as I knew this was not a Lomography product, but I just had to have instant gratification of the Lomography party.
Here are some of the great highlights:
1. The space is really well lit with a photo wall galore!
2. Gadgets!!!! Including the fisheye, fisheye underwater case, Pop 9, Colorsplash, Diana F+ deluxe kit, Diana Glow in the Dark, Lenses, Horizon, Lubitel, Holga, Holga Pinhole, Lomography bags and much, much more!!!!! There are also rolodexes highlighting photos from each camera demonstrating all creative possibilities!
3. And of course the really awesome people!!!!
Apparently, in November 2009 they will be showcasing Dianas from the 1960s and 1970s. This location will provide workshops, speakers, events and etc….
So hurry to 41 W. 8th St New York, NY 10003 and check out the new Lomography Gallery Store.
Rock that analogue!
