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."

That's an incredible body of work. I'd love to come to the show but it's way too far. Hopefully it will come to me at some point.

Don,

I admire your work and I am glad to hear of your success! Like Jan, I would be interested in a copy of your book.

Thomas

I have suggested that Eastman House look into securing this exhibit.

Wonderful job, Don; 40 years of work is satisfying in itself, but when it gets a wider audience, that is wonderful.

No it's at the Museum of East Tennessee History / East Tennessee Historical Society in Knoxville. Elizabethton is only about an hour and a half north. I will have more detail on where it will be traveling in a couple of months. I did a talk to about two hundred and fifty museum visitors yesterday during lunch and discussed the traveling part with the curator. He said they are fabricating crates for shipping and starting to get requests. In speaking with him I had no idea of what is involved in getting a show on the road. Due to the large size of the show I think the museum is going to offer it in different formats depending on the space availabel at the museum. Just guessing I would say the show currently is in a space !800-2000 sq ft. and really could have been in a larger space,

Luckily I live in Knoxville, about 15 minutes away from the show. I went today and was amazed. I have admired Don's photos through his RFF gallery for years but seeing them in print along with many more that I had never seen was awesome. I especially loved hearing Popcorn Sutton's voice while looking at the many pictures of him.

Congratulations. I've always enjoyed your photos (and your insights on RFF). It's a shame I live so far away. I'd really love to see your show.
