I do not post frequently, but I read here at lot. This is a great site and the people here are genuine. I found this thread and I felt it was important to contribute.

In 2007 I was accepted into 13 juried exhibitions by sending in my artwork to calls for entries (I submitted to 20 to 25 in total). I had framed photographs traveling all over the country. I had to pay for shipping both ways. The most hectic was arranging for two photographs to be delivered to an exhibition while I was on an extended photography trip in northern Canada. Those did not sell either. Nearly all of my pieces returned with scratches on the Plexiglas (can’t ship glass).

With every submission I sent along a very professional packet, cover letter, business card, and a small 2” x 2” accordion booklet of my work (about 5 tiny photographs). After every acceptance I sent a thank you card expressing my sincerest appreciation.

In 2008 I decided to limit my exposure to regional shows (to reduce my costs) and to shows with “names” such as museums or similar that would mean something on my resume. I am glad that I did.

This past spring I had a best in show for photography at The Trenton Museum--which received local press. I also received prize money. That photograph is now a part of the museum’s permanent collection.

From submitting to these exhibitions I was fortunate to meet one or two very nice gallery owners who recommended me to others and gave me good advice. One was very helpful because she recommended that I submit my artwork to a regional hospital expansion and I sold 4 or 5 pieces for about $2,000 in total.

I am glad that I used these juried exhibitions and I would do it all over again!

FYI: All artwork originated from 645-transparency film.

It's wonderful to read what everyone is up to and I'm especially proud of Suzanne's latest achievement, well done!
If you're interested, Photo Review Australia, Spring Issue # 37 (current) has an article on my work.
I need to step back a bit and take it easy for a while, but in the interim can be reached via email.

Just to announce that I've been rejected for the FIFTH time to the "Mexico's Biennale for Photography", the bad news. The good is that I'll have an exposition of my transvestite work at the art gallery of the "Claustro de Sor Juana's University", the next February, starting the 11th. until the 20th of March.

A photograph I made during a trip last year to China was a winner with Applied Arts magazine, in Toronto. It's a magazine for the graphic arts/design/ad agency crowd in Hogtown.

And I have an exhibition at a gallery in my own (small) city coming up, the pictures hang December 18th.
The show (tentatively called "Latent Country") is hand-printed B&W images from 2 trips to China, all made with my Widelux F7. And I'd be remiss if I didn't say that the information and wisdom I gained from this forum and its people were absolutely invaluable in producing the show.

I received an e-mail yesterday telling me I had been short listed for the 'Isle of Wight Photographer of the Year' competition. A very grand title for a small event.

The fifty shortlisted entries will be exhibited at a local arts centre then at Dimbola Lodge (Julia Magaret Cameron's former home and now a photographic museum).

I expect my image was one of just a handful of traditionally produced images amongst mainly digital submissions.

In March of this year, my photo-book/portfolio was finally published at publisher "P" in Leuven (Belgium).
The book is a small but fine object with 20 B&W pictures very well printed in duo-tone and varnished with a slightly warmly tinted varnish. The pictures were accompanied by 20 intriguing poems by a friend - poet Johan van Cauwenberge.
The tittle is "Voor de zondvloed", freely translated : "Before the Flood", and was dedicated to Nadar who was an antediluvian "d'avant la lettre".
The book was presented during a small show with some the pictures.

In attachment the photo shown on the poster announcing the book and the show.

I had been on a hiatus from the darkroom for a couple years before 2007. Prior to then I had done mostly black & white film photography for many years for personal enjoyment and decided to take it up a notch or two by purchasing top quality equipment at dirt cheap prices compared to the prices of the pre-digital era. I could not afford the equipment to get the images I can today. (hurray for us!!)

Coming off from my first show in September 2008 at a Deli Gallery in Minneapolis I had two of 5 pcs selected for an upcoming show in January 2009 at the Minneapolis Foundation in downtown Minneapolis. There were three judges selecting art to display. The judges consisted of the curator from the Weismann Art Institute as well as from The Walker Art Institute here in Minneapolis, not sure where the other judge was from. Many entries were turned down so I was quite honored. I am also starting to sell some pieces to help the cause.

I want to thank many of the APUG members for their vast knowledge of the trade and still feel I have so much more to learn about analog photography.

Congratulations Philippe, I die of envy. How many they print? Do the publisher sells on line?

Well, there were about 425 printed on high quality paper, NOVATECH 170 gr., and typesetted in Perpetua and bound in a rough and very sober cardboard.
The scanning of the prints was very well done, on a brand new Heidelberg drum scanner, by Bema-Graphics. Together with the canner operator, it took us a long time to fine tune the scanning and to fit the ink colours (a certain tone of black and grey) and ink densities as well as the toning of the varnish and the effect on the paper.

25 of them were released with a signed handmade print on baryta paper (25 x 40 cm), the right half was the picture (see attachment) and the left half was a poem, hand written by the poet. These were numbered and signed by us. Almost all of then were sold, so the project came out not to bad financially, the Publisher is rather small...
One can buy the book via the publishers website : www.uitgeverij-p.be, ISBN 978-90-79433-02-5.

Philippe

P.S. do not die of envy to mutch, I had to wait for 5 years till the book came out, it took 4 years till the poet finished his writing, but it was more than worth it!

Recently won an award during the first time photography was included in an exhibition at the major Osaka museum.
We were a small contingent representing Canada and it was an honour to be part of the representation.

I entered 25 photos in 4 divisions (B&W, Color, County Fair, County Natural) at our county fair, winning 7 1st place and 8 2nd place out of about 300 photos in the competition. Two of my 1st place entries won a Best of Show in the B&W and County Fair divisions.

I then entered 5 of the Blue Ribbon winners in the North Arkansas Regional Fair where 4 of them won Blue Ribbons.

The County Fair B&W Best of Show picture was the panoramic shot of two twin trees in a meadow (shown in the Flickr link below) which would have a bye to the State Fair, EXCEPT the State Fair didn't have a panoramic category within the B&W division, so I entered a full frame shot of the same scene. I really didn't think it was as good a composition as the panoramic because the full frame version had too much sky and foreground grass. In spite of my misgivings, it won a 2nd place ribbon.

The October issue of "FINE Art Photo" (issue 5) published 14 of my images on 12 pages. In fact, one of the images made it to the cover. It was the smallest of the 3 images on the cover but, on the cover none the less.

The Krappy Kamera Competition is one which has held my interest for the past few years and had me keep focused (or not) on how my images fit into this annual event. I was recently notified of the inclusion of one of my images in the 50 selected for exhibition this year. This is the third consecutive year one of mine has been selected. This year's entry is a hybrid cyanotype. The two previous images were a platinum palladium print and a silver gelatin print. Although I've used a variety of different Krappy Kameras, each of the ones selected has been a pinhole image. The show will be at SOHO Photo GAllery in New York during the month of March. All the images will be posted on their site (sohophoto.com) in a few weeks. Bill Barber

I received word that I took Honorable Mention at the Prix de la Photographie Paris (PX3). This is my second Honorable Mention in as many entries with them. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.

I'm thinking of contacting Lars von Trier, as he has experience in this sort of thing.

Here was the entry:
3027650064_ac6085edd7.jpg


This is from my Angels & Insects series. Shot on Type 55, lithed in and on Maco.

Oddly enough I have a show in France coming up in a month. Would have been nice to have gotten both!

Recently had an image accepted at a local literary annual (art on left page, prose/poetry on right). It is in the gallery as "Market, Hustler, WI" if your are curious. It was also selected for a local, juried show recently.
