Press release from Lomo__
January 2009 was a huge month for Lomography in New York City. The first month of ’09 saw the grand opening of the ultimate Big Apple Lomography destination, the Lomography Gallery Store NYC! There is finally a place in New York where Lomographers can pick up any Lomographic product, or haul away rucksacks full of film before exploring our photogenic city.
On the evening of January 26th, Lomography USA threw a grand-opening shindig of skyscraping proportions. The party was the place to be in NYC that evening, with a long line of LomoLovers stretching down 8th street eager to get in. With the drinks flowing, the music thumping (sorry new neighbors), and hundreds of bodies grinding up against each other, Lomography was here to rock New York. Oh, and to the people taking pictures in our bathroom... we're still waiting for our copies!
The party was packed with so many great friends, including guest photographers, and past Lomo Amigos, Nicky Digital, Gavin Thomas, Keren Fedida, and Dave Ortiz – as well as future Lomo Amigos Amber Tamblyn and Alexis Bledel, who invited their buddy America Ferrera. With nearly 500 guests, a mind-blowing performance by A Hawk and A Hacksaw, a river of Austrian beer and piles of delicious snacks, and the unveiling of “the tower” – a 3-story 360-degree LomoWall comprised of a whopping 35,000 photos submitted by Lomographers from around the world, Lomography had arrived in New York City with style!
