In conjunction with Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair, Slow Culture & Deadbeat Club are proud to launch the first iteration of an ongoing installation entitled: “The Fotomat” As an homage to drive thru Fotomats of yore, we will be re-creating a full functioning kiosk to be installed outside The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.

All weekend long we will be offering 24 hour film developing services, film, custom photography accessories, zines and more. In addition to photo ephemera for sale, there will be guest clerk photographers selling limited edition prints exclusive to the booth. Our goal is to create an immersive, traveling installation aimed to both educate and celebrate the legacy of film photography.


Deadbeat Club is an independent publishing group dedicated to the production of small run & limited edition publications rooted in contemporary photography, curated by Clint Woodside.

Established August 2013, Slow Culture is an independent art gallery located in Chinatown, Los Angeles. From art shows, commercial projects, to off site exhibits, all forms of media are explored. Having developed an extensive network of artists and creatives, Slow Culture aims to offer a digital and physical platform to support artists and creatives across all mediums.
