We broke out the old slide projector and asked our community members to show us some of their favorite slides! The result was an evening of popcorn, beer, and some great artwork.
After getting come refreshments the crew set to work very carefully picking out slides they would like to project. We had three very different sets of work to view. First up was a batch of Kodachrome! As some of you may know back in 2009 Kodachrome was discontinued so this was a real treat.
Next up was a set of slides all about the art of rock and roll. We got to hear some really great stories about each photograph and get a glimpse of what being a musician means.
Last up was a collection of old family photos from between 1960 and 1980. It was great to see how the colors have shifted on the slides with time. Everyone brought some really amazing stuff to share and we hope to have another slide show party very soon!
Join us for an evening with NYC-based fashion photographer Emily Soto. Concurrent with her exhibition at our Gallery Store, "Petzval Portrats: Bloom," Emily will discuss her work and experience using the New Petzval Art Lens in her work. Gather insight into the creative process of one of New York's favorite photographers. This event will take place on July 9 at 6:00 p.m.
Aside from developing his own black and white negatives, he also crafts pinhole cameras out of ordinary boxes. His dreamy, soft-focus lomographs even inspired some of the community members to go lens-less on their next photo shoot. Let's get to know more about our newcomer of the week from Sheffield, United Kingdom, sandy_sun!
Photography has been described as a time-stopping device, something that “freezes” an action. This moment on-pause is the most salient; all conversation about the picture will tend to pin down the beauty of that second. Celeste Ortiz’s photos make us think of something else. A sense of continuation.
