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.
