Event description

Description

Social media makes photography a ubiquitous way of sharing our lives with each other. But we so often alter those images to make them brighter or more colorful, or to add strange filters and swap faces. We also take multiple photos at a time just to get that one perfect shot, leaving the others to wither a digital death.

But what if you couldn’t do any of that?

In this 365 photo gallery, Mike Higdon used film to capture Reno life as he saw it — without a filter. Because film already makes photos imperfect and gritty, like our lives and our city.

Starting July 1, 2016 and ending June 30, 2017, he used one roll of 35mm film with 36 exposures per month. He took one, sometimes two, shots per day, then developed them at the end of each month at a local film store. He had to live in suspense hoping that each photo turned out as intended. And for the most part, they did.

Come see a year of work at the Potentialist Workshop from Oct. 1 - 26 and a closing reception with Mike Higdon Oct. 26 at 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
