iAkron: Portrait of a City

Artist and filmmaker todd v can usually be found roaming around the city of Akron with camera in hand, documenting the city he loves. Whether its telling stories of its rich cultural history, or the latest gallery opening, you will usually see todd capturing it for posterity. And at ALL times, he’ll have his iPhone in hand. Following the lead of photographer Chase Jarvis “The best camera is the one you always have with you”, todd began chronicling his life in Akron. “Along the way, I’ve been able to meet some amazing people in this city. I’ met so many people who amaze me and inspire me to work harder every day” says todd. “As I’ve gotten to know this city, I am constantly amazed by all the incredible things I have come to learn about it, and I wanted to share it with everybody else!”

This exhibit will be a collection of carefully selected iPhone photos from his daily life in the city. Using the iPhone as if it is an older ‘holga’ style camera, these photos will be shown in a series of 6 x 6 inch black and whites, and projected on the gallery walls digitally during the opening reception. Additionally, the entire collection will be available as a small coffee table book. Signed copies will be available at the We Gallery during the exhibition.
