Art Gym Denver is thrilled to present I Dreamt in Lo-Fi by Jami M. Guler in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception February 28 from 5 – 8PM. I Dreamt in Lo-Fi is a series of photographs by Jami M. Guler demonstrating the beauty housed in Helga cameras.
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, is clearly displayed in this exhibition. The cameras used for each photo will be exhibited as well, to help educate the observer on the tools used to create these beautiful photographs.
The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday through Friday, 9AM – 6PM. It will be on display from February 28 through March 22, 2019.
