Meg Birnbaum "Corn Dogs and Blue Ribbons" at Griffin Museum at Digital Silver Imaging

We are please to invite everyone to the opening of Meg Birnbaum's exhibit at our gallery on Friday, May 22, 6 - 8 PM. The Griffin Museum @ Digital Silver Imaging Gallery is located at 11 Brighton St in Belmont, MA.

DSI, in conjunction with the Griffin Museum, opens its new gallery space with Meg's work from 14 regional fairs in New England, ranging from small 4H events to huge expositions.

Photographing the fairs using basic, plastic cameras and black and white film Meg says "I purposely wanted to lose sharp detail and instead capture a fleeting moment, a broad stroke, the distillation of the experience in the hope of capturing iconic imagery."

Many of the fairs visited were more than 100 years old, yet she began to wonder about the future of farm animals and farm life. "The future of these summer fairs may rely on a shift away from agriculture to entertainment…mostly food, specifically fried food," she says. "Fried Oreos, fried cheesecake. `We’ll fry anything’ one sign read.’’
