Got MLIF? Bokeh Gallery Going Old School
The exhibition MLIF features traditional film photography to remind visitors that "making" photographs is a true talent. On display in the Bokeh Gallery at the monOrchid April 4-28, 2014.
The title of this show is "film" backwards, but upon first glance it may cause many to do a double take. This was on purpose, it is a call for people to take notice, think about, and remember what goes in to film photography--
The artists included in the exhibition use various techniques and explore the nuances of their craft. Noe Badillo explores movement, applying modern techniques and theories to change images of classical artworks. Peter B Klein uses infrared photography to create great contrast--deep blacks and bright whites--and capture the range of tones in between. BK Skaggs is a hunter-gatherer photographer, exploring place and capturing images as trophies. Lydo Elise Le captures singlular moments in minimal color film photographs. Together, the artists display a wide range of the possibilities using traditional film photography with contemporary experimentation.
Bokeh Gallery is located in the monOrchid, in the heart of the downtown Phoenix arts district at 214 E. Roosevelt St. with the building open daily from 9am - 5pm. The entrance to Bokeh is through the east alley. Originally a Del Webb warehouse constructed in 1937, thirteen years of renovation and invention have morphed the 14,000 square foot building into a unique space for creativity, celebration, and culture.
