"It's photography of my life, the people and the world as I see it," says Keleher. "The iPhone is convenient and spontaneous. You can't choose focus and I don't crop; it has to be right the first time." But despite the camera's technical limitations, many of these photos are more about framing than anything else. And Keleher doesn't use post-production techniques to juice them up: If they don't come out right the first time, that's it -- it's like a Polaroid shot.
But most of the time they come out very right. Keleher's show, which opens at 5 p.m. tonight and runs through December 31, is based on her Best of Show submission to last year's Denver Plein Arts Festival; the prize was a solo turn at the Byers-Evans House Gallery, 1310 Bannock Street. Admission is free; for more information, visit www.byersevanshousemuseum.org or call 303-620-4933.
Mondays-Saturdays. Starts: Nov. 4. Continues through Dec. 31, 2011
