Photogs / Photo Exhibits This is the place to discuss a particular Photographer (work, style, life, whatever), as well as to post Gallery and Museum Photo Exhibitions and your own impressions of them. As we march on in this new digital world, it is often too easy to forget about the visual importance of the photographic print, as well as their financial importance to the photographer. It is also interesting to remember that some guy named Gene Smith shot with lenses that many lens test reading "never had a picture published in their life" amateurs would turn up their their noses at, as being "unacceptable."

I saw some of his prints in person in Shanghai (actually, I think I wrote about it before on this forum). They are absolutely incredible. The actual prints are enormous, and show more detail as you get closer. Amazing!

Does anyone know what he uses for equipment? Also, how does he print these beasts?

A friend showed a slideshow some time ago, and I found it utterly boring. Not the work itself, thats pretty good (umm more than that). I mean those buildings..repetitive repetitive repetitive.

If you look at one of the huge prints in person it is breathtaking. You start out at a distance looking at the form, pattern and shape of the buildings. Then as you get closer you start to see the human element. Faces in the windows. Laundry. Subtle differences. It really is amazing to see.

If I didn't live in HK, I would think that the picture above was doctored. But buildings are really close to each other here. The architecture is in general not very inspiring, but put together they exist as a fascinating statement. But I do agree with Stelios...it's really depressing looking at these flats. And living in one.
