Current Exhibition: ‘SB Film’ showcasing 4 promising Santa Barbara area photographers to coincide with the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

January 13th – February 16th, 2024

Featured Artists:

Matthew McGrath

A photographer based in Santa Barbara who specializes in analog film photography, Matt has been featured in several publications including Pampelmousse Magazine, and La-Peridique.

 “Film has always intrigued me with its inherent requirement for patience and planning. Each frame is valuable, and the results are delayed until developing and processing is complete. Film also allows me to experiment with my photography in ways that digital does not; with double exposures, and darkroom print editing. I’ve been working primarily with 35mm film for the past 2-3 years”

Ted Rhodes

Photographer/musician/activist who previously worked in Hollywood as a
Key Grip. His artistic expression emerges from his images, “from my strengths as a
photojournalist and my passion, in the heat of the moment, to try to capture my subjects
and their occasional slips of hand that make them each unique.” For the past ten years, he
has been one of the official photographers for the Santa Barbara Blues Society. 

Recently, Rhodes returned to film work as an executive producer on Travis Burgess’s new independent film, Hayseed. Regarding photography, Rhodes believes in the old Robert Capa adage, “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.”  To that, Rhodes likes to add, “Or quick enough!
