The Lynnwood Library Gallery rotates visual art exhibits every 4-6 weeks located at 19200 44th Ave W.
The Lynnwood Arts Commission presents John Armstrong, a well-known Seattle photographer, at the Lynnwood Library Gallery through August 8. John's passion for documentary street photography in urban areas and any kind of photography involving water is captured using a plastic “toy camera” called a Holga which uses standard roll film and has almost no controls. John enjoys the challenge and fun of getting a strong photo with such poor equipment that focuses in the center, is blurred near the edges and often has darkening at the corners of the photo. Armstrong's photographs taken with the Holga camera have won numerous awards and can be found in many local collections including Seattle’s SAM gallery. John has written several books on photography including Getting Serious with a Toy Camera.
