On Sunday, June 15th, Lomography and B&H Photo will present a mouth-watering Diana+ Workshop at B&H’s event space. Michael Kuhle will briefly run through the history of the camera and explain its many functions. Following that, we’ll hit the streets of midtown for walkabout Diana+ Safari of all the sights. It will truly be “easy like a Sunday morning.” Or a Sunday afternoon, as it were. Here’s the deal:
A limited quantity of loaner Diana+ cameras will be on hand for you to use (first come, first served).
A batch of free medium format film will be provided by Fuji.
The B&H Neighborhood photo safari will begin by interpreting the historic James A. Farley Post Office (which has the longest giant order Corinthian colonnade in the world), documenting the recently closed Cheyenne Diner (a classic chrome NY dinner located across the street from B&H) and other details found around the 9th Ave area.
A local development lab will offer a discount on processing for all films shot during the Diana+ safari.

For a lover of panoramic photos, the Horizon Perfekt is one of the most sought after cameras in the market. Through the revolving glass lens, it makes pictures that are sharp right into the corners at an extra wide panorama format. The distortion that can occur gives its pictures a special appearance.
Manchester based band Oasis rose to fame in late 1994 with their debut album "Definitely Maybe" which went straight to number one in the UK charts.

Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
