Saturday was a day filled with antiques and lovely old things, clocks and sparkling jewelry and yummy local food! 6 lomographers eager to explore joined us here at the Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy on our trip to the Brooklyn Flea Market located inside the former Williamsburg Savings Bank.
This beautiful piece of architecture, along with the glowing sunlight coming through the windows, illuminated the scene of over 100 vendors selling vintage clothing, jewelry, specialty foods, photo frames… as many things old and charming as you can think of! We each brought an LC-A+ loaded with 800 speed film to capture the indoors, and spent a few hours wandering and snapping photos, occasionally having the joy of running back into each other as we discovered the 3 amazing floors this flea market had to offer.
We definitely had a fun time with each other, and want to go back to explore this unique Market again!

Photography as a medium evolved more than just as a way of documenting and capturing real life. It became an avenue for creation and release of fiction. In Erika Zolli's photography, she translates her cognitions into surreal images.
This talented Chicago-based artist and a freelance photographer amazed us with her work from the very start. Clarissa Bonet is inspired by the structures of the city, their impact on the body and she enjoys exploring aspects of the urban space in different contexts.
Color plays a huge but 'subtly-there' role in films. They give out the message and intention, the mood and feelings without being obvious. And David Fincher is no exception to manipulating our perception through his conflict-loving palettes.
Self-portraiture is synonymous to experimenting and getting to know one's self, it's a classic tradition of art history, but it never fails to be beautiful. And such is Rimel Neffati, who finds amusement within herself, through photography, red lipstick, masks, crowns, and flowers.
Film noir is one of the most unique and stylish genre of film that we all continue to love. Expressionistic in manner, yet pessimistic, fatalist and menacing, film noir isn't just about the dark and brooding.
