Sept 8 - Oct 15, 2016
Somerville Toy Camera Festival
Opening Reception: Saturday, Sept 10, 4-6pm
The 4th annual Somerville Toy Camera Festival features exhibitions of lo-fi film photography in 3 Somerville galleries: Brickbottom Gallery, The Nave Annex and Washington Street Arts. Since 2013, the Somerville Toy Camera Festival has celebrated the quirky and creative results that can happen when photographers are forced to loosen their controls, submit to the light and embrace the accidental.
In addition to the three Somerville gallery shows, this year's Festival programming includes artist talks, workshops, and social events, as well as special events planned in partnership with the Griffin Museum of Photography and the Photographic Resource Center.
See the STCF web site for a complete listing of Festival programming, and the STCF Facebook page for news and updates.
For the 2016 exhibitions, juror Christopher James selected work by 87 artists from an international pool of entries. The Brickbottom show includes 49 photos by 36 artists:
