2010 International Juried Plastic Camera Show

Come see the results of our most recent juried plastic camera show.  Beautiful images taken with less-than-gorgeous cameras.  Flawed but not forgotten.  This year’s exhibition features the work of Czech photographer, Michael Borek, from his series Wide Asleep (Day).

Michael Borek Artist Statement
I was obsessed with the sharpness of my prints, and I always agonized overt finding the right values for Amount, Radius, and Threshold to optimize Unsharp Mask in Photoshop for capture sharpening, content sharpening, and output sharpening. Then I met Holga. And my life was never the same. She helped me let go and took me to the realm where imperfection and lack of predictability–thanks to her light leaks and lack of focus–can be inspiring. I did not know where this would take me, but I enjoyed this journey. Suddenly, instead of agonizing over my art, I was like a child playing with his favorite toy. I almost felt guilty.The pictures in this show are from three of my portfolios – Wide Asleep, Half Awake, and the Bridges of Montgomery County. I took them with my eyes closed. By that, I don’t mean that I slid my lids over my pupils to prevent rays of light from transmitting the images before me. Rather, these photographs were taken through an imaginary filter that reveals what is there to be seen in addition to—or in spite of—the bare images themselves. They document my encounters with scenes that felt intense, dark, and strange, yet also oddly familiar. Perhaps they capture dreams that I have yet to experience. Or maybe they seem familiar because I dreamed of them before.
