Hot Shopping: Lomo Photo Mania

As the saying goes, “everything old is new again.” The resurgence of Lomography, the Austrian company known for its brightly hued analogue cameras, is a testament to this adage. The Lomography Gallery Store appeals to this nostalgia, drawing in the brand’s longtime cult followers and attracting new fans with products such as the sought-after fisheye camera, beloved for its quirky spherical perspective. The Queen West outpost—the only such store in Canada—is part boutique, part art space and part classroom, with knowledgeable staff who answer questions or give on-the-spot lessons. Beginners and more experienced Lomography photographers can sign up for workshops. Visitors can also seek inspiration from the thousands of photos curated on the Lomo Wall.
