"Joyland Toyland" Photographs by Catherine Slye Opens September 20, 2019

Catherine Slye’s brand new series of photographs highlight yesterday’s toys set in bright candy pop colors. All images were photographed with her Sony + Canon Macro 50mm, lit by Lume cubes and Roscolux filters. Slye collected over 40 vintage and antique toys, many of them are made of celluloid - a pre-plastic material used before WWII. She chose toys that had interesting faces and clever eyes, ones that would catch light allowing her to play with their expressions.

Joyland Toyland will exhibit at The Walter Art Gallery from September 20 to October 18 2019. Please join us for the opening on Friday, September 20, 6:30 to 9pm.
