What: Happy 20th Birthday Lomography!
Yep, that’s right, It’s our birthday and we’re ready to celebrate! We are a child of the 90’s so what better way to celebrate than a 90’s party! We’ll sport our favorite high tops, rock out to the best 90’s music (aka the best music EVER) and who knows, maybe even show our favorite 90’s movie. There will be snacks, drinks and a birthday cake for all you Lomographers! This will be the best party to hit Chicago since our Grand Opening Party! Bring your cameras and your friends and celebrate the birth of Lomography with us while we’re getting jiggy with it!
