World's first permanent LomoWall unveiled in Manchester
Lomography has teamed up with two Lomo fans Tom Ambrose, a University of Manchester student, and Monica Sagar, an Arden School of Theatre graduate and native Mancunian, to create the world’s first permanent LomoWall in Manchester.
The wall measures 30m by 3m and showcases the city’s industrial heritage. The first-of-its-kind wall was unveiled yesterday on Tariff Street in the Piccadilly basin area of Manchester city centre and is open for the public to view today, Friday 27 July.
Containing 14,000 individual Lomographs, it is the world’s first permanent LomoWall and the only LomoWall to be built outside this year.
The project celebrates the 2012 Canal Festival, brought to Manchester’s Piccadilly Basin by the Piccadilly Partnership in association with CityCo, Manchester’s city centre management company, in conjunction with Town Centre Securities, owners of Piccadilly Basin and previous owners of the Rochdale canal.
Linda Scott, Marketing Manager at Lomography UK said, “The area is full of design agencies, trendy music venues, bars, cafes, a craft centre and fashion boutiques and is perfectly suited to the dynamic visual delights of a local LomoWall from Lomography.”
