Photographers of all skill levels can geek out at this Gramercy spot. Just like the original West Village locale, NYC’s second Lomography Gallery Store features snapshot-covered walls and shills all the necessary tools for creating your own artistic pictures. Scour the welcoming space for inexpensive plastic cameras, including the Diana F+ ($95), a reproduction of a model from the ’60s; action samplers ($30), which take a series of four shots with each press of a button; and color-splash models ($85) that can tint your photos with vibrant hues. You’ll also find accessories such as canvas shoulder bags with pockets for cameras ($65), T-shirts printed with Lomo graphics ($25) and books such as Don’t Think Just Shoot ($60), featuring photos taken with cameras sold at the shop. In addition to stocking film ($4–$10), the Gallery Store also develops it ($14–$30). Not sure what all the nondigital hubbub is all about? Attend one of the store’s frequent weekend workshops ($10) to learn how to use the funky cameras.
