In this digitally dominated age it’s refreshing to see images produced with film and actual analog cameras. With that said, I invite you to view Low Tech/High Art, work by artists who have chosen to use toy cameras to create their compelling images. The photographers are a diverse group from across the country united in their passion for producing images using cheaply made cameras with substandard lenses
for everything from commercial work to fine art.

A display of Toy Cameras will be featured in the gallery.

The work will be on display through December 31st.

I ended up going today, little did I know there was a major event in Manitou Springs today (coffin racing). Luckily the gallery had its own private parking, so we got in fairly easily.

It was worth the trip. Many of the prints were silver gelatin and there were some split toned prints and salt prints. The vast majority were taken with Holgas and Dianas and were very well done. The people there were super nice and good to talk to. So, you all should get down if you can and support our analog community :)

Thanks for the heads up on this one Mike. I think I will try to make a trip down too. It sounds like a nice excuse to get out a bit.
