Hillsborough Community College’s Ybor School of Visual and Performing Arts Gallery presents an exhibition by well-known Tampa photographers, Rebecca Sexton Larson and Matt Larson. The show will run from August 21 - September 25. 
 
An Artists’ Reception will take place Thursday, September 11, 4:30 - 8:00 p.m. with a Gallery Talk at 6:15 p.m.  In addition, the artists will showcase their collaborative mobile studio project, the Boxfotos Airstream, the night of the opening with Boxfotos tours beginning at 7:00 p.m.
 
Husband and wife photographers, Matt Larson and Rebecca Sexton Larson, enjoy taking photo safaris to state parks for inspiration and create new photographic works. They launched Boxfotos Airstream as a way to fund travels and create more opportunities to teach.
 
 “Having a 23’ Airstream as a mobile studio is more versatile then buying or renting building space. We can now reach a wider audience,” said Matt Larson.
 
Although they travel together on photo shoots, their photographs are not collaborative. Both have their own style and creative vision. The art couple is quickly creating national attention with their Airstream and have been referred to as “Monsters of Mobile Art,” “Creatives on Wheels” and “Art in a Box” by local and international media outlets and publications.
 
Using alternative image making devices from Holga and Diana toy cameras to iPhone and pinhole cameras, the exhibit will present a collection of small works using historic photo processes, including salt prints, tintypes, bromoil and collodion prints.
 
The HCC Ybor Art Gallery is located in the Performing Arts Building, first floor, Palm Ave and 15th street. Regular hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 10 a.m. – 4.pm. & Tuesday noon to 7 p.m. For more information, please contact Carolyn Kossar at 813-253-7674or ckossar@hccfl.edu.
