Using her iPhone, Tama Hochbaum (born 1953) grabs TV screenshots of classic movies favored by her mother, who died in February of 2012. Silver Screen traces her mother's legacy in a blend of visual technologies: celluloid transmitted via broadcast and rendered digitally, the TV screen and the ubiquitous iPhone.

Tama Hochbaum is an artist/photographer living in Chapel Hill. Originally from New York, she received her BA from Brandeis University in Fine Arts and was awarded upon graduation a Thomas J. Watson Foundation Fellowship to study printmaking at Atelier 17 in Paris. She received her MFA in Painting from Queens College in NYC. She worked as a painter for 20 years before turning to photography. She has exhibited extensively in the Triangle including an exhibition entitled Silver Screen in July and August of 2014 at Daylight Project Space in Hillsborough, NC.
