Saturday May 25th @ 2pm – Lubitel Lovers!* (Must pre-pay to RSVP for this workshop)*
The Lubitel is one of our all time favorite cameras here at Lomography Chicago. Come learn all about this magical twin lens reflex camera.

We’re excited to partner with Brooklyn Industries this spring for a super fun rumble, exhibit and of course, party! To lead up to the big day, send us your analog photos with the theme “five”—whether it’s a high-five in action, seeing the number five miraculously in Mother Nature or a photo of your five favorite people. As their Chicago store celebrates its fifth birthday this year, and is conveniently located right next to our Lomography Gallery Store Chicago, we’re also throwing a joint party and exhibition on Thursday, May 30, 2013 to celebrate!
