Last Friday was our second PHOTO CAFÉ talk with Seeing Collective and it was amazing – and so was the turnout!  The room was filled with photographers and analog fans and the open discussions were entertaining and insightful – our hearts are filled ❤️

Thank you to our awesome speakers, Geoffrey Berliner of Penumbra Foundation, Birgit Buchart of Lomography, Rachel Jun of Gowanus Darkroom and Penn State University professor and photographer, Lonnie Graham for sharing their personal experiences and wonderful insights on the world of analog + photography! 

*Video of this talk is coming soon (!) but you can enjoy some photos below and clips from our last discussion on Seasoned Photographers hosted on the Seeing Collective YouTube channel.
