Macro Photography by Bryton Sampson

Exhibit runs from Jan 9 - Feb 14

ARTIST STATEMENT

I was born at the dawn of the Golden Age of Action Figures™. I realize now how lucky I am that my parents gave me so many neat toys. I think my dad was secretly a nerd and was as into the toys as I was. I still have my childhood action figures. All of them. I’ve carried them with me nearly 40 years while adding to the collection. I have all the old ones and then I have some medium-old ones and some new ones. 

I received a clip-on macro lens for my iPhone and tested it out on a nearby figure and was amazed by how much was revealed. Dust, lint, chipped paint. These artificial, indestructible heroes are as subject to the passing of time as the rest of us. I liked seeing these objects that I thought I was so familiar with in a new way. I decided to make it a series. And here it is.

About the library

The pleasing design of the Anderson-Foothill Branch has two unique elements as part of its plan. The first is a passive solar energy design that includes earth berming, window placement for solar heating, and zone supplemental heating/cooling. The second element of this 14,900 square foot community library built in 1985, expanded in 1992 and in 2002, is a modular design.

The Anderson-Foothill Branch has a meeting room available for public use with tables, chairs, and a projector screen. The Anderson-Foothill Branch's outdoor amphitheater is a popular location for summer concerts. Free parking is available to the north and south of the building, and free wi-fi access is provided throughout the library.
