The Imperfect Lens at A Smith Gallery

My photograph, I could never have dreamed you, is included in the The Imperfect Lens exhibition at A Smith Gallery. 

The exhibition includes photographs made with toy cameras, pinhole cameras, and cameras with homemade lenses. “Plastic and homemade lenses along with pinholes eschew perfection -- like drawing with the charred end of a log or singing opera to the accompaniment of ukuleles. The drawing can be exceptional and the music sublime, unexpected.  Removing the technical and using simplistic tools allows the image maker to focus on what is in front of them to achieve their creative vision.”
The exhibition runs from March 13 through May 10, 2020. With the gallery closed during the coronavirus pandemic, the reception originally scheduled for Saturday, March 28 is being replaced by a Facebook Live gallery walk and talk at 4:00 Central Standard Time.
A Smith Gallery is located at 103 North Nugent Avenue, Johnson City, TX.
The juror for The Imperfect Lens was fine art and commercial photographer, independent curator and juror, and photography writer Michael Kirchoff, who is also Editor in Chief at Analog Forever Magazine and Founding Editor at Catalyst: Interviews.
