Small People / Big Cameras – A medium and large format photography showcase
This September, I will be involved in a photography showcase featuring 20 medium and large format photographers from Clubsnap. The Hassy you see in the poster in mine muahaha ego moment.
Here’s the official press release that we drafted.
For Immediate Release.
small people / BIG CAMERAS is a showcase of photographic works captured on medium and large format cameras. The presented works are a mixture of digital and film formats, taken by cameras ranging from the classic Rolleiflex Twin Reflex, a 5×7 camera made almost entirely out of wood and brass, as well as the latest in digital medium format backs.
In today’s digital world of megapixels and high burst-rates, there still exists a thriving community of photographers that are not just shooting film, but shooting with medium and large format film cameras. This form of photography is by nature much slower and more controlled, making it far more involved and contemplative a process as compared to shooting digitally or with a smaller camera. The added benefits of shooting with larger formats are the very visible increase in image quality as well as the inimitable rendering of film that digital photography has yet to successfully emulate. From the gorgeous details to the stunning dynamic range, this showcase of medium format and large format photography is all set to impress.
Featuring the selected works of 20 local photographers, small people / BIG CAMERAS looks to increase the awareness of photography in the larger formats, as well as the promoting of photography as a collective. The public can expect to learn more about the process of shooting with larger formats as well as having a hands-on experience with these exceptional cameras.
The showcase will be held at the trendy shop space of goodpoison in Parco @ Millenia Walk P2-22, Singapore from 22 September to 5 October 2012. The opening hours will be from 12pm to 8pm. The grand launch of the showcase is on 22 September, 7pm at the same venue.
I will be featuring one of my shots taken in Huangshan, China earlier this year. Do pop by if you can!
