SOMERVILLE, Mass. - Aug. 10, 2018 - PRLog -- Since 2013, the Somerville Toy Camera Festival (STCF) has celebrated the quirky and creative results that can happen when photographers are compelled to loosen their controls, submit to the light, and embrace the accidental. Each year since, the Festival jurors have selected work from a wide range of toy camera photographers, both US and international, who will exhibit their work in simultaneous gallery shows throughout Somerville. STCF also features related programming, including artist talks, panel discussions, workshops, social events and a darkroom day.

The sixth annual STCF will run from September 6-October 13, 2018, with work displayed at Brickbottom Gallery, Nave Gallery, and Washington Street Art Gallery, making it among the largest toy camera festivals in the world. Showcasing the lo-fi art work of local, national and international photographers, STCF highlights the talents and creativity of artists who use low tech tools to create high art images.

This year's STCF has been juried by fine art photographer Jennifer Shaw. The exhibit "Space In Between," held at the Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, will specifically showcase Shaw's work. "Space In Between" will coincide with the Festival's time-frame, running from September 11-October 5. The Photographic Resource Center in Cambridge will also be taking part in highlighting STCF, hosting several related events during the Festival's run.
