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."

Large Format Photography Show in Phoenix, AZ

In a bit of self promotion, there is a Large Format (Film) Photography Exhibit coming up in Phoenix, AZ, in June. A number of my fellow LF photographers have put together a show at the Found:RE Hotel.

Come and see a wide range of film-based work in silver, alt processes etc.

On the other hand, a contact print has a special quality that some feel cannot be obtained by any enlargement.

This is a quote from the website, boy is that true. Check the site, there is some wonderful work.

Large format is meant to be seen live, in hand. On screen doesn't do it justice.

Of course it is, and so with any film photo.

In my opinion a photograph isn't finished until it is printed film or digital.
