Nowadays our lives are digital, finding inspiration in apps from Instagram to Vine. Sure, we've all been there—thinking these apps are predictable and trite as we scroll through five or six swipes of food photos and selfies on throwback thursday—but your life doesn't have to be like that. It doesn't—life can be more exciting and fulfilling with the anticipation and mystery of what film photos turn out like. And to celebrate this spice of life, Lomography has announced that this Friday, April 12 is Film Photography Day.
The Chicago Lomography Store and gallery on Milwaukee Ave is hosting a party with lots of events to celebrate and to make sure you're properly equipped, we're giving away a beautiful free camera: the Lomography Diana Mini and Flash Package in Twilight Blue.
