Martha Davis
Dream Scenes: Seniors on the Green Screen

May 15–29
Reception: May 16, 7–11pm

Hashtag Gallery
830 Dundas St W


Hours: Tue–Fri 4pm–10pm
Sat–Sun 2pm–8pm

Part studio portrait, part collaboration, Davis encourages senior citizens to “go anywhere, do anything” using the magic of green screen photography. Her photographs lie at the intersection of the formal and the familial, the public and the private realm. These funny, poignant portraits of seniors “living their dreams” express deep longing; Davis empowers them to accomplish virtually what they have not and are no longer able to accomplish.

Workshop and artist’s talk: May 25, 3 – 5pm.
