Opening Reception – I Dreamt in Lo-Fi
February 28, 2019
Art Gym Denver is thrilled to present I Dreamt in Lo-Fi by Jami M. Guler in Common Space Gallery with an opening reception February 28 from 5 – 8PM. On display through March 22, 2019. Free and open to the public.
Photographer Jami M. Guler first found her passion for Holga cameras in 2000 while working in a gallery in Phoenix. Since then she has collected and experimented with a myriad of variations on the Holga. Her newest series I Dreamt in Lo-Fi explores the dreamlike quality of photographs made with Holgas. The photographs were taken during a trip to Akumal, Mexico, and give the viewer a sense of trying to remember a vacation you never took. In her artist statement for the series she explains “These photographs are similar to the way your mind’s eye might recall a dream, and what that dream might look like after a long time has passed, opposed to the crisp image a digital camera may convey.” Guler’s passion for photography, and Holga cameras in particular, come across in this exhibition. The cameras used for each photo will be displayed as well, to help educate the observer on the tools used to create these beautiful photographs.
