“Hat Trick”

I am frequently asked, “What is a plastic camera”? Simply put, it is a camera made of plastic or more specifically a lens made of plastic. In other words, low quality, crappy optics. For me using a plastic camera translates into freedom from the technological aspects of photography allowing me to concentrate on the graphics and design of an image.

These photographs were created using a Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic” disposable camera that I reload with Kodak Tri-X black & white film. Like most artists I’m a control freak when it comes to my art. I process my own film and do all my own printing, both optical and digital. I make my own scans and print these images digitally on Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper using an Epson 7890 printer with K3 ink set for an archival quality print that will last for generations.

The Opening Artists Reception is Wednesday, March 9th from 6-8pm.

The exhibition runs from March 9th through April 29th, 2016

The Opening is free and open to the public. Many of the artists will be at the artists’ reception. Please support the arts by attending arts events and buying art. Hope to see you there!

Burning Man 2015

Burning Man 2015

Burning Man has never really appealed to me. Maybe because I become uneasy at the thought of large crowds, let alone a really large crowd in a place that Trish and I have been camping in for decades. Camping without a crowd, or without seeing … Continue reading

Renown Healing Arts

03_Deon_Reynolds

“Stillwater Windmill”, photographed on film with a Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic 35” disposable camera, is one of 15 framed prints from my “Where Cowboys Roam” portfolio purchased by the Renown Healing Arts Program in Reno, Nevada. I am thrilled to have my limited edition photographs in the largest art collection in Nevada! As a board member of the Nevada Arts Council, we were given a tour of the amazing art found within the walls of Renown Health. Truly, a hidden gem of art in Reno and well worth the time to explore.

Find out more about the Renown Healing Arts HERE. Renown has just added my work to their website. The website shows all of the artists in the program and where you can find the art within the facility. Click HERE to view all of the artist in the Renown Healing Arts Program.

Annenberg Space for Photography

Last month, I was contacted by a photo curator at the Annenberg Space for Photography. She was seeking the work of photographers who have been creating exceptional photography that explores the world, its creatures, history and evolution and requested a submission of my plastic panoramic images for an upcoming slide show night. Once I returned home, it took me more than a day to edit, file prep and up-load the thirty images for the high resolution slide show. The theme for the slide show follows their current exhibit “Country: Portrait of an American Sound“. This special, one-night showcase at the Annenberg Space for Photography will feature work from 25 “Noted Photographers“. What a thrill to be on this list!

Date: Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Location: Annenberg Space for Photography

The following images are but a small sampling from the slide show. They were all created using a Kodak “Fun Saver Panoramic” disposable camera re-loaded with black & white film.
