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
