One year and four days ago we brought to your attention that cult photo brand, Lomography was scouting in Chicago. Today, we got official word that a lease has been signed and the Chicago Lomography Store will be open this year.
The store and gallery, located in Wicker Park will bring the joy of analogue photography to the greatest region in America. The hype starts with meet-ups between now and the opening party in a few months which our confirmation from Lomo email has assured us "will be the greatest opening party Chicago has ever seen". Oh, by the way, we totally called it.
