Visions Seldom All They Seem
Double Exposure Photography by Ellen Marie Lewis
Reception: Sat, Mar 31, 4–5:30pm
Visions is a loving exploration of postwar Americana, temporary locations, manufactured dreamscapes, roadside attractions, abandoned places, and anywhere that is closed for the season.
Ellen Marie Lewis is an undergraduate student at the University of Utah double majoring in Film and Gender Studies. Raised between Las Vegas and Southern California, she has grown up in spaces with histories and heritages deeply entrenched in tourism and a gaudy yet genuine sort of appeal. Inspired by the films of Sofia Coppola, the music of Lana Del Rey, and a love of vintage found photographs, Lewis is currently documenting every elaborate neon sign, county fair, or drive-in movieplex she finds through double exposure film photography.
Lewis's primary goal is to surround herself with creative thinkers and to explore as many creative outlets as possible. She is currently trying on several hats, sometimes as a filmmaker, sometimes as a photographer, sometimes as a radio personality. She has been playing with toy cameras for nearly three years but loves her Holga 135 the best. This is her first exhibit.
