Lomography lands in LA for some good, clean, photographic fun

Last Thursday night, the world of analog photography grew exponentially in Hollywood.
The global fans of the world of LOMO will rejoice with this new west coast flagship of the plastic camera kings.

When you want to slow it down a bit, shoot some film, and take a bit of a risk, in your photography, you have to hit this store.

Sure, you can visit on-line as we have done for many years. Or pick up some bits from stores like Freestyle or ICP.
This is the motherload.
Here is an overview of the first floor of the space.

Cameras, film, books, bags, T-shirts, and most importantly: a giddy love for photography in it’s most freeing sense.
the opening celebration began with mariachis and Mexican food, and included a cake in the shape of a classic Diana camera

Everyone was checking out the goods.

Sometimes love was blooming over a sweet plastic camera.

What appeared to be almost a wailing wall of photos, the acolytes camera to touch, photograph, and choose their purchases wisely, knowing they were among film friendly legions of photographers.

They tipped us to the fact that not only are they selling film, but in the future, they will offer processing of that film.
Yep, you now won’t have to mix the chemicals and store the jugs.
They’ll do it all for you.
There are some classes coming up right now to introduced to this world, new for some, and a blessing for the loyal.
