Thank You Lisa!

I just want to send a quick thank you out to Lisa D. Iacobellis for her donation to Brownie In Motion! Lisa is an extremely knowledgeable enthusiast of  photographic history. As  Assistant Curator for Rare Books and Manuscripts at OSU, she has been kind enough to share some wonderful examples of 19th century photography with my photography classes over the past few years!

Thanks you so much for all that you do!

Brownie In Motion visits the Ohio Camera Collectors Society

 

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in the Ohio Camera Collectors Society (OCCS) Show and Sale on Saturday, May 17 at the Aladdin Shrine Center.  The club’s president, Daniel Hausman, has been following the camera obscura project since the very beginning and was kind enough to invite Brownie In Motion to their event.

Little did I know,  the Kodak Brownie Target Six-16 camera  holds a special place in the hearts of OCCS members, who, in the year 2000, designed and produced a Millennium edition of this camera. Only 100 of these commemorative cameras exist, which honor the 100th anniversary of the Brownie and the start of the new millennium.

The Brownie In Motion IndieGoGo Project Launch

My Indiegogo campaign to bring the camera obscura out west and begin a new series of ULF photographs of artisans launched on Friday at Imagine400 here in Columbus. The turn out was amazing and I was proud to be part of it such an interesting mix of creators! Many thanks goes out to the organizers & my fellow exhibitors (including Gavin Bruce, Roman Holowinksy, Reese Nader, Mikey Thomas, TLA, Linda Diec, Chris Howel, Stephen Pence and the whole Art Party crew.) I appreciated everyone who donated money and sat for a portrait at the event AND a great big thank you to everyone who has backed this project online!

A shout out goes to my fellow artists Amy Ritter (http://amybritter.blogspot.com/) and Lauri Lynnxe Murphy (http://www.laurilynnxemurphy.com/) who made the first donations online on Friday afternoon. You guys rock!
