AMERICAN CAMERAS
VICTOR LANDWEBER

July 26 - September 6, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, July 26, 6-8pm
Plastic box cameras, manufactured during the 1940s and 50s to satisfy the visual acquisitiveness of the prospering middle class, here enlarged to 16 x 20 inches, achieve the status of celebrities. Each separated from its background by a glowing halo, appearing a spectacular apparition, suggesting an exalted specialness while belying the marginal utility of these simplest of cameras. 

- James Hugunin, from Victor Landweber Photographs, 1984

In addition to this exhibit, there is an exhibit of surf photographs from the late 1960's by Roy Porello at Harry's Coffee Shop at 7545 Girard Avenue (2 blocks south of the Bellows Gallery) and an exhibit by artists who have murals hanging throughout La Jolla. This exhibit is at the Quint Gallery located at 7547 Girard Avenue which is next door to Harry's. All three exhibits run from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

    Great photos! I bet Dan owns most of them. Check it out if you get the chance.

      I do plan to go and will reschedule another event day/night for this. Curious to see what cameras are featured.

      As it turns out, I think I have or have had, 5 or 6 of the 14 cameras displayed.

    Be aware it's a small display, just 14 prints. You can see them all online if you wish.

    I went but didn't see anyone. I liked the photos, I'm a camera collector. Debated buying a couple of prints at $3500 each ;).

    I will be meandering along Girard checking out the different exhibits. Look for me.

    I will be working at Comic Con and unable to attend. If somebody would be willing to host, I will add that title to your rsvp. Otherwise, enjoy at your leisure.
