Stephen Takacs – The Brownie In Motion Project

  • Bushwick Community Darkroom 110 Troutman Street Brooklyn, NY, 11206 United States (map)

Stephen Takacs is a fine artist and editorial photographer based in Columbus, Ohio with a passion for analog processes. In 2013, Takacs built a one-of-a-kind camera obscura modeled after a 40’s era Kodak Brownie box camera that is roughly the size of a Range Rover. Since that time, he’s traversed the country with his bigger than life Brownie photographing inspiring craftspeople who continue to work with their hands in our increasingly digitized world. His portraits are shot on large pieces of B&W film and photo paper that are often developed inside the camera itself.

This October Stephen and the Brownie in Motion Project will travel to The Bushwick Community Darkroom in New York for a solo exhibition of photographs running October 17th through December 1, 2019. The camera obscura will only be on view from October 17 – 26th so visit early!

Opening reception October 17, 2019 6:30-9:30pm
