I wanted to show a part of what I've been working on this semester for Senior to the rest of the photo-sphere. I have been conducting self portraits of myself as female relatives to find a connection between us. This is my grandmother Eleanor Courtney she is my father's mother. Haven't decided to pair the two photographs or display them separately, Input is must appreciated.
Photographer Tim Matoani makes portraits of famous photographers and their iconic images. As if that concept isn't grand enough, he uses an ultra-rare 20x24 inch polaroid view camera. Only seven exist.
"The development and production of two backs (I wanted to have a spare) was equal to the cost of a good size house – before the housing crash. I know it sounds insane, but the financials on it are not so bad: I used to shoot on average 7.5 Polaroids per photo, and I shoot between 400 to 500 images a year. That’s at least 3000 Polaroids. At 15 bucks a pop. Or about 50K per year, minimum.
"We never set a unit price, but it would be in the low six figures.
"The device creates images a bit over 10MP; when cropped to correspond to 8×10 the final image size is 3285 x 2611.
Get Ready for the next 16 by 16 by 16, 2013 A traveling portfolio exhibition created and curated by photography students
In an effort to get photography students to look at and evaluate the work of their peers from around the country, The Metro Photo Club has started a traveling exhibition series titled 16 by 16 by 16. The hope of these exhibitions is that they will include work made and chosen by students from schools around the country and they will travel to and be displayed at each of the schools throughout the school year. This was a huge success this spring. Let’s do it again. How it all works: All photographs (vertical, horizontal, square) will be matted to 16 X 16 inches The same color/type of mat board must be used for each print in the portfolio Sixteen students will be represented from each school Each student in the department may submit two photographs for consideration but only one photograph will ultimately be exhibited Students may be from all class levels The final sixteen prints representing your school must be chosen by students currently enrolled in the photography program (how you do this is up to you…panel, voting, etc) The 16 matted photographs must be packed in a reusable container for transport to the other schools. Each school will host “an exhibition” of the work of students from the other schools, ending with an exhibition of your initial submission (need not be formal) Work will be mailed to each of the schools in a “round robin” fashion with each school paying the shipping fees associated with shipment. (FedEx Ground should be able to do this for under $15 each time) Exhibitions will run for one week starting in the Spring 2013 semester/quarter with one week between for packing/shipping/installing The final exhibition of a school's photographs will be at that school near the end of the spring semester.
Deadline for Submission Monday December 3rd in the Photo Studio
