Happy 4th of July to all today and a special nod goes out to all of our men and women who are serving in our armed forces this holiday weekend. Please stay safe out there and a big shout out from the folks at home for all that you do.
This is a lensbaby shot, one from the archives, posted today because I’ve been eating a lot of fruit lately. I had some watermelon today to mark the 4th holiday and, I have to admit, it was some of the best watermelon I’ve had in a long time. Wow, it was good.
To hold, point and shoot a (plastic) Diana camera implies a conscious decision to relinquish control. To concentrate your creative powers on capturing the moment and telling a story – rather than fiddling with a bunch of knobs and levers.” This quote from the Society of Lomography sums up the goal of this exhibition. Fantastic Plastic will feature the work of selected avant-garde artists who challenge themselves to create compelling images with plastic cameras and other “lo-fi” cameras such as Holga, Lomo, pin-hole, Lensbabies lenses, cell-phone cameras, home-made cameras, TtV with vintage cameras, etc.
One of my more recent black and white images, taken with a plastic lens, will be included in the show.
Until next time…
