Karolina Lewczuk Gallery Openning

We are happy to announce that we will be showcasing the work of Karolina Lewczuk! We will be debuting her photos at our Lomography Gallery Store on Friday, July 19th at 5pm. Come in and see her gorgeous work with the Holga 120, and see why she's referred to as "Holga Hands."

Karolina’s passion for the Holga began in the summer of 2009 when she took the camera on vacation to Poland and quickly fell in love with its non-intimidating nature, small size and ease of shooting. The developed results charmed her even further; the imperfect, but expressive signature characteristics of the Holga perfectly reflected the sunny memories of the trip. Since then she has been carrying the camera with her everywhere and capturing the simplicity and beauty of places, people, and things.

The current works are a developing extension of photographs displayed at an exhibit in Montreal a year ago. Revisiting the past project and incorporating various media was a process of reinvention and finding new in the old. Come out to this gallery showing and enjoy a beverage with Lomography Chicago. See you all there!

The Holga CFN 120 is a medium format icon known for taking lo-fi images. It now comes with a built-in flash that bathes you shots with yellow, red, blue, or clear light. If the Holga misty, vignette look is not enough for you, try the Diana F+ for dreamier, softer shots.

    What Art Can Learn from the Banal

    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.

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    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.
