In our series of unusual stores in Barcelona, we found another pretty different store that specializes in the Lomography camera.
As I’m a big camera lover I was looking for an unusual, specialist camera store in Barcelona. You may say there are plenty of those here in Barcelona but they are just generic stores like Fnac or Fotoprix and I was looking for something more genuine, more unusual. And I found it: the Lomography Store in El Born.
Since the opening in 2004, this specialist Lomography store is one of the favorite stores for all the city camera lovers. You can find this store in a small street of El Born where you will be welcomed by Tomas the manager and Federico who can help you find any camera from the Sardina Camera to the FishEye Camera.
This store doesn’t only offer cameras but also accessories like bags, t-shirt and even books. They also organize workshops at least twice a month, activities and picnics about photography. So if you’re in Barcelona for few months don’t hesitate to go there and take a photography class.
Camera lovers will be happy to go back to their childhood, to grasp all the photographic effects that their grand-parents camera did. They can also make the perfect present. They are pretty classy and can be the perfect start to a collection.
Just name your favorite photography effect and they will find the camera for you !
The cameras look like toys but in fact they are great for real pictures.
They also have accessories like bags and t-shirts to complete the look of the perfect camera-enthusiast.
There are lots of different models of Lomography camera from the Fisheye Camera to the Holga Camera.
