Gary Baratta, Arizona Member Since May 2007 Artist Statement Gary is a lo-fine art photographer making his photographs exclusively with toy camera technologies. He embraces the characteristics and limitations of the Holga medium format camera and its guesswork focusing 100% plastic lens. Shooting in chromogenic and black and white film stock, Gary finds the spontaneity of the Holga combined with the physicality of negative film produces art in ways that are not possible with digital photography.
For Gary the use of lo-fi camera technology defies the notion of high and low art. He follows a self-created method of shooting and printing that transcend standard photographic methodologies to produce imperfect perfection.
