The Midwest Large Format Asylum will hold its second annual portfolio showing on Saturday, January 10th, 2009 at Starved Rock State Park in Illinois. We will spend the day looking at images made with large format cameras starting at 8 am.

Everybody is welcome and it is free. The lodge has a great restaurant & each person is responsible for their own breakfast & lunch.

All portfolios are welcome...the only requirement is that the image was captured with a large format camera.

If time permits, we will arrange short talks. Last year's topics included mixing your own chemistry & creativity. Many people came in early last year & took advantage of the location for some shooting as well.

Last January we had 17 portfolios show up which I find amazing! We hope to make this next showing even better. More information can be found at

Hope you will consider joining us.
