As someone whose initial experience with film cameras was usually something “instamatic,” I am only now discovering for the first time the combination of craftsmanship, chemistry, and improvisation that was necessary in the days of film... The author, Rags Raghavan, has since moved on to digital photography. I have been taking photos since I was ten years old with the family Kodak Brownie 620 camera, which is still with me and a treasured family heirloom.

In his current show, he makes reference to well known paintings from art history while providing his own twist with words layered over the images or by adding contemporary objects. Providing an uncomfortable and sarcastic view of contemporary life with titles referring to preoccupation with beauty, self-help and other topics, these lightweight books confront with their garish colors and cartoon-like shapes.
My name is Brian Friedkin and I spend most of my time under the hood working on the Kinoma Create frameworks and built-in apps. On the Kinoma Create home screen, the built-in Wi-Fi, Logs, Files and Samples apps are a few of my contributions. Software design validation As a software engineer, I spend a good chunk of time writing code.
