Artist Reception: December 6, 2019, 6 – 8 PM
“In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.”
— Alfred Stieglitz
Photography has long been a rapidly evolving medium with the introduction of new technologies, making it ever easier to capture an image. Very few artists continue to produce images using tintypes, wet plate negatives or for that matter even rolled film. The introduction of the cell phone camera jettisoned these past image methods to art appreciation lectures and history books for the most part. These compact mobile devices provide a viable instant image capture with the possibility of multiples at a time. Long gone is the stress of waiting to learn if you got that perfect shot or waving the Polaroid in a futile effort to speed up the developing time. Both artists of Celluloids and Light Voidsutilize their cell phone cameras for convenience and inspiration.
