We’ve been working all summer on a film swap with Lomography Peru and we want you to join us on Thursday September 25, from 7 to 10 pm at Strange Beauty Show for our gallery opening! It’s going to be a great time and we hope to see you there!
A “film swap” is a collaborative photo process: one artist shoots a roll of film, then gives it to another artist to shoot over, resulting in a double exposed image of both photographers’ work. The Lomography Embassy Store (1422 N. Milwaukee) has conducted a film swap with Lomography in Lima, Peru featuring artists who are active participants in the Lomography photo community. The finished pieces overlap cityscapes and urban images from both cities. The show invites you to view the familiar with fresh eyes by giving your surroundings new context.
Strange Beauty Show – hair salon by day art gallery at night – provides a fun and relaxed venue to display the project. An all-vinyl set of smooth vintage disco will be provided by Captain T. Captain (aka Vourteque) and Monteblanco Monteblon (aka Mr. Automatic). Complimentary beverages and appetizers with a Chicagoan/Peruvian themewill be available. Free haircut raffle and opportunities to sign up for future Lomography classes and workshops willbe given away as well!

Aside from browsing through beautiful photographs and reading interesting articles, hanging out in the shoutbox is another worthwhile activity to do in the community.

The shoutbox is always brimming with entertaining conversation and it's all because of these Lomographers.
