Artomatic 2008 - Meet the Artists Night Holgas
This past Friday was "Meet the Artists Night" at Artomatic. Because I attended Meet the Artists Night last year, I knew that 3 hours of staying in my 12 foot exhibit space was going to be absolute murder. I'd get bored, start wandering around, and not actually get to meet anyone who came to my display. So my strategy this year was to bring a Holga setup and make photos of visitors to my space. And guess what? Time flew! People were reluctant at first to let me photograph them, but as the night wore on, everyone loosened up and had fun with it. Most of the images you see here are of other artists who came to visit, but some are of non-artist visitors too. If you see yourself here, feel free to leave a comment. Heck, you can leave a comment even if you are not pictured here. I shot a lot of people that night...
Thank you to everyone who allowed me to Holga them! I hope you like the results as much as I do!
