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."

Sally Mann Exhibition in Washington D.C.

Today was the opening of the Sally Mann exhibition "A Thousand Crossings" at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. This is the biggest exhibition of her photographic work ever, with 110 of her photos on display. Seeing many of her photos on 40x60 inch silver gelatin prints is truly amazing! The introduction to the exhibit was given by Sarah Greenough, senior curator and head of the department of photographs, who gave an excellent scholarly one hour talk in front of a packed auditorium (roughly 500 people). However:

Bummer #1: To the big disappointment of many, Sally Mann didn't show up (even though one museum employee told me that she was in the building).

Bummer #2: The event was advertised as "followed by a book signing" and many people purchased the exhibition catalog to get it signed by Sally Mann. But guess what? The books were signed by the curator (!) of the exhibition, not by Sally Mann.

Bummer #3: The exhibition catalog costs a whopping $200! Edit: the pre-signed limited edition catalog is $200; the regular catalog costs $55.-
