Trumbull native's photos on display
Seven photographs taken by Trumbull native and Trumbull High School alumna Lys Guillorn are featured in a two-artist exhibition at The Gallery at Still River Editions in Danbury, along with seven photographs by Stratford photographer David Blackett. The exhibition runs from now until March 28.
The exhibition is titled “Fadeless Imagery: Light and Memory” — all of the photographs were shot on photographic film.
“Photography records light at a specific moment, or series of moments,” Guillorn said. “This becomes a memory of light."
Her black and white photographs often depict the shadows of trees on buildings, and objects in nature that appear sculpture-like. She uses a Holga "toy" camera to capture her work, which gives it a dreamy quality and a distinctive square, black-edged frame. After her film is processed, Guillorn scans the negatives and adjusts the files, then has her work printed by Mark Savoia, Master Printmaker at Still River Editions.
Guillorn currently live in Shelton. Since 1998, she has been a Fine Art Imaging Specialist and Photographic Printmaker at Connecticut Photographics / Still River Editions.
The Gallery at Still River Editions is located at 128 East Liberty St., Danbury, CT 06810 and is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 am to 5 p.m. Call the gallery at 203-791-1474 for more information.
