Get your portfolio ready. The Midwest Large Format Asylum will hold it's fifth portfolio review on Saturday, January 28th, 2012 at the Best Western Indian Oaks Motel in Chesterton, Indiana. If you love images made with large format capture, this will be the place to be.

Many participants arrive a day ahead on Friday for an afternoon of shooting as Chesterton is only a few miles from the Lake Michigan shoreline and the Indiana Dunes. Many others come just on Saturday for this free event.

We will expect to show between 15 and 25 portfolios. If there is time, we have also offered short talks on such subjects as carbon printing, mixing your own chemistry and creativity, to name a few.

Photos from our previous years "lockdowns" and more up to date information can be found in the FORUM section on our website:

Hope you will consider joining us. Large format photographers from Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio will be joining us.
