June Workshops and Events 2012


Summer has arrived in NYC, and at the Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy we are excited to present 18 analogue filled workshops throughout the month of June! Join us for walking tours at the Gramercy shop, including a trip to the Union Square Farmer’s market, the 10th annual delicious Big Apple BBQ in Madison Square Park, a Birthday Bash Blue Hour for our very own LC-A+ (and another new little member of our family!) as well as a Bar Hop all out doors and on roofs. At the end of the month, we will be participating in Photoville, an event entirely for photographers to celebrate everything photography that you won’t want to miss!

From celebrating the beginning of summer by soaking in the sun with 4 fun events in the Gramercy Shop, to bringing you 14 different workshops at the all-photography village that will be Photoville, we’ve got you covered for analogue fun in June!

What: June Workshops and Events 2012
Where: The Lomography Gallery Store Gramercy and Photoville NYC

*Saturday 6/2 @ 2 pm – Greenmarket Walking Tour with the Diana F+*
NYC is home to some of the best Greenmarkets around, bringing fresh meats, produce, and baked goods right to our local parks. The best part about these markets besides the yummy food? They are an awesome array of colorful fruits and people alike for us to photograph! After learning all about the amazing medium format wonder that is the Diana F+, we’ll head up to Union Square’s very own weekly market!

*Saturday 6/9 @ 2pm – Big Apple BBQ Walking Tour*
We are thrilled that just two blocks down in our very own Madison Square Park, the 10th annual Big Apple BBQ Block Party will be setting up camp for the weekend of June 9-10th! Bring or borrow your favorite camera, and join us as we enjoy music, lectures, and fantastic food, all courtesy the lovely South bringing us some comfort, right in our own backyard! This workshop is FREE.

*Thursday 6/14 @6pm== – Blue Birthday Bash*==
Enjoy another year of LC-A+ magic with the Lomography crew as we celebrate her 28th birthday! We’ll have cake and punch, and maybe even some party games! We also may be welcoming in the newest (and smallest) member of the Lomography Family, so come greet her as she makes her entrance into the world!

*Saturday 6/16 @ 5pm – Rooftop Bar Hop*
Hop with us as we go bar to bar, taking in the summer’s lovely evening sun! We’ll hit as many bars as we can that are outdoors and on roofs. Bring a friend or two and let’s celebrate the beginning of late summer nights with photography, drinks, and good company! Sprocket Rockets and Spinners will be the stars of this bar hop as we capture the sunset through panoramas.

*Friday, June 22nd to Sunday, July 1st- Photoville!*
For two analog filled weekends we will be participating in Photoville NYC, an amazing event dedicated to all things photography. The Event will take place at Brooklyn Bridge Park at the pier 3 Uplands. We will be a part of an entire photography village made out of shipping containers! Of course there will be a sensational LomoWall made from online submissions covering our space, and we will be holding a whole slew of workshops! For more information, please come into the shop and we’ll tell you all about the fun we have in store for you!

*Friday, June 1st to Saturday, June 30th- Spotlight Exhibition: Staff Member Nicole Neenan*
This wonderful array of photographs will be up in our Gallery Space for the entire month of June, featuring photographs taken by our very own Nicole Neenan on her recent trip to Thailand. Explore another world on film, and come any time during the month to see what amazing things are possible with analogue!
