My FAE exhibit is set up
I’ve set up my display for the Nagoya Foreign Artists Exhibition today. The exhibition opens to the general public on Tuesday, and runs through to Sunday, 6th November. It is my first time in an exhibition and I felt a little nervous setting up. I had problems with my prints coming back not being the size I ordered, and so they were smaller than the frames I had, so I had to get new frames. Setting the pictures in the frames at the venue felt a lot like getting dressed in public, it felt weird.
I think I have a large library of images to choose from, and mostly digital. However, I guessed (correctly) that most of the photography exhibits would have been shot in digital, so I assumed that going olde school would set me apart a little. I met some great people with some great photos and had some great conversations. One interesting photographer has a medium format Bronica that he hasn’t used in years, and another has Minolta film cameras, too. They expressed some interest in dusting them off. It’d be a great feeling for me if I’ve inspired them to play with film again (at least a little).
So, please come and have a look at mine and the other wonderful works on display at the Nagoya International Centre, or check out my online gallery at PhotoShelter.
