The artists assembled for The Journal Gallery’s City Limit exhibition were chosen for how their work responds to the socialization of our collectively shared space—as an environment simultaneously conceived, perceived and experienced.

video: The last Reel

Photography // Friday, April 17, 2015
Steven Bogner has produced a beautiful short film entitled The Last Reel for The New York Times that looks at the near extinct craft and business of 35MM projection. “I don’t like the way the digital image looks. It looks too flat, too crisp and clean, and cold. My love of 35mm film—I don’t think I will ever lose that. The warmth, the depth of color, the magic of light going through an image—it talks to you. It’s like it has a personality.” says Jenny Cowperthwaite who is the Executive Director of the Little Art Theatre in Dayton Ohio.
