Bob Wilson’s (mostly) Plastic, (somewhat) Fantastic Cheap Camera Film Photo Show

July 9th - September 10th, 2015
Please join us for the Artist Reception: July 9th, 2015 4-6pm

Today, these very basic type of plastic cameras made in the late 1940s through the 1970s are sometimes referred to as junk or toy cameras. Most really started out life as simple inexpensive cameras that a family might have around the house to take on vacation or to a day at the beach for some quick and easy photos of the children and family. Some were certainly made for young beginners, yet are still capable of making a nice photo. It can be quite a surprise what the results may be. Bob Wilson

Bob’s camera collection will also be included in the exhibition.
