“And if they don’t win it’s a shame.” Well it seems like the film team is going to win after all. Much like the SF Giants, the film shooters are a band of over achieving misfits coming together at just the right time. And like our World Series Champs, the film team was born out of disenfranchisement . In this case a frustration with digital photography as an art form. I’m certain that The SFAI teaches plenty on digital photography, but isn’t it ironic that many people I meet prefer to explore the boundaries of film and alternative processes. The toy camera, holga, and lomo are the low fidelity player’s choice around here.
This Friday we will hold a reception here at Photoworks to prove the point. Hope you can join us, and meet the members of the San Francisco Toy Camera Club, or as I call them, The Film Team. ( certainly not misfits)
