Plastic Fantastic Show

The PLASTIC FANTASTIC SHOW, features toy camera photography of over 40 photographers from around the United States, as well as from Sweden, Australia, Great Britain and Canada. This group show celebrates LightBox’s love for photographic images made from the use of plastic “toy” cameras. This genre of photography has a huge following around the world, with images made from very low tech cameras with plastic lenses. Fifty images were selected by juror Lauren Henkin as well as ten gallery choice images selected by the gallery. Toy cameras are special with the wondrous and dreamlike images they create, photographic subjects take on a unique special quality that is rarely found from any other capture device. We at LightBox have a special love of these cameras and images and in celebration of our 1st anniversary we wish to feature photographers that share our love of these special cameras.
We are starting an annual tradition here at LightBox with this 1st Plastic Fantastic Show. Congratulations to Award winners Meg Birnbaum, Megan Green, Susan Bowen, Deborah Jaques, John Bridges and Lena Kallberg.
